- ALMOST ALL DENTAL DISEASE IS AVOIDABLE
- KNOWLEDGE & UNDERSTANDING IS POWER
How you are affected by dental issues – tooth decay, gum disease, mouth cancer is largely down to lifestyle factors (these are the things you can change) along with genetic predispositions (things you can blame your parents for!!). Across everything we do comes advice and education specific to you, your mouth and your needs. Starting with your medical, family and social history, through full examination of your teeth and all the soft tissues of the head and neck to assessment of your gums we monitor every aspect of your oral health.
In relation to gum health and your home-care we now work on the principle of “Supportive Periodontal Therapy”. This consists of not only Treatment sessions carried out by our highly qualified hygienists (what you may think of as a scale & polish) but also Education sessions with, the hygienist, your dentist or one of our Oral Health Educators. These education sessions are seen as invaluable in improving what you can do to look after your teeth and gums.
