It may be an old adage but it’s certainly a very true one when it comes to your teeth – prevention is better than cure. I recommend that you come for a check up at least every sixth months, so we can ensure your teeth, mouth and gums stay healthy.
Your check up
I believe very much in preventative dentistry as catching problems early could save you from having to undergo lengthy or expensive restorative treatments, whilst protecting your teeth from the long term effects of tooth decay or gum disease, both of which could result in you losing perfectly healthy teeth if left untreated.
In addition, our highly qualified hygienist, Linda, has worked alongside me at the practice for over 25 years now and is an expert when it comes to helping you look after your teeth. Linda can advise you on all aspects of oral health and preventative care, from the best way to brush and floss your teeth to the best diet for healthy teeth and gums.
If you would like to find out more about any aspect of oral health or preventative care you can contact Linda at the practice to arrange an initial consultation.
Mouth Cancer Screening
The earlier mouth cancer is detected, the more successful treatment is likely to be, which is why we believe mouth cancer screening is an essential part of our preventative service. If you would like to talk to me about any concerns you may have or you simply require further information, you are very welcome to arrange a consultation with me or my colleague, Dr Wilf Chan.
