Dentist in SohoCheck-ups

We recommend that you visit us once every six month during the normal course of life or more often if you are having certain treatments or issues. This interval allows us to keep an eye on your teeth and, hopefully, catch any issues before they appear. There are early warning signs for problems like cavities that your dentist in Soho can see and attend to before they get worse.

Repair

If it does happen that you need restorative work on your teeth, we have plenty of options that the dentist in Soho can discuss with you such as:

  • Fillings – fillings are one of the most common ways to repair damage. Once there are holes in the teeth, it is important to repair them as soon as possible. This is because the bacteria that cause tooth decay can get caught inside the holes and are therefore no longer removed by brushing. They stay inside a tooth and feed on sugars from food that enters the mouth producing acid, which breaks down the tooth even further. Fillings cap large holes after the dentist has cleaned out any debris. This secures the tooth and prevents further damage.
  • Clean and polish – a simple clean and polish can go a long way towards securing the future health of your teach. Plaque is a sticky substance that builds up on your teeth and it is one of the substances that you brush away morning and night. If it is left to build up and harden, it becomes tartar, which is one of the major causes of gum disease. Tartar cannot be removed by brushing alone. The hygienist can get rid of any build up with a clean at the dentist in Soho.
