The key to having healthy teeth and gums is to take good care of them, both at home and by visiting us regularly for dental examinations and for hygiene appointments.
Our regular dental examinations enable us to spot any problems at an early stage, including mouth cancer screening.
Our hygiene appointments are vital for your oral health. This removes plaque, a constantly forming thin and sticky layer of bacteria which can irritate the gums and cause gum disease.
Gum disease is the most common disease in the human body. The initial symptoms include bad breath and sore, swollen or bleeding gums. With treatment it can be controlled, but if left untreated it can eventually lead to tooth loss.
If needed an appointment with our specialist in periodontics can be arranged.
