Dental Check-Ups and Active Maintenance
Having a healthy mouth means more than just a bright smile. Caring for your oral health involves an understanding of its importance and impact on your overall health. This is why we at The Dental Practice have developed a dedicated health and hygiene programme as part of our commitment to you.
At The Dental Practice, we will closely monitor your oral health in order to diagnose any irregularities early, preventing gum disease, tooth loss and reducing the need for extensive restorative procedures. Our entire team is dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain healthy teeth, healthy gums and a beautiful smile for life.
Your Dental Team
We are proud to have experienced and highly qualified dental hygienists as part of the clinical team who are committed to helping you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Our hygienists work collaboratively with the dentists to provide you with exceptional care and valuable oral health advice. The combination of a thorough at-home care plan and regular active maintenance appointments will ensure your smile stays healthy for life.
Your Dental Health
Gums perform an important role in protecting the underlying fibres and bone that hold teeth in place. Additionally, there is considerable evidence showing links between your general health and the health of your gums.
Research shows connections between gum disease and heart disease, vascular disease and diabetes and it has been proven that people with gum disease are significantly more susceptible to other health issues.
If you have noticed any of the following symptoms, you should see one of the hygienists at The Dental Practice to discuss a personal care plan:
- Bleeding when teeth are brushed or flossed (healthy gums do not bleed)
- Gum tenderness
- Red and/or swollen gums
- Bad breath and/or bad taste in your mouth
- One or more teeth becoming loose or “wobbly”
- Teeth appearing longer because gums are receding
- Gums are itchy or sore
- Spaces appearing between teeth
