Commuting and working in London can make life hard work, with some commuters having to travel over ninety minutes by train to get into the city where they work. The distance and time spent travelling can make arranging appointments difficult, especially for those who are already just making ends meet, as losing a day’s work can result in them losing a day’s pay.
Of course, there are some appointments that people miss so they can carry on working, that they should not miss, and these tend to be medical. We all need to recognise the importance of keeping medical appointments, this should include dental appointments.
For those who live and work in the UK’s capital city convenience may play a key role in deciding where to visit a dental practice, as they may prefer to have the ability to visit during their lunch hour. For those in Central London having the ability to visit a dentist in an area such as Soho may prove ideal.
Do not ignore the need for good oral health
Our oral health is one of the most important elements contributing to the health of the entire body, therefore we need to give it the attention and consideration it deserves. Keeping to regular check-ups and undergoing any treatment recommended will help to keep oral health and hygiene at the best they can be, this will then help to encourage and maintain good health for the entire body.
You need to see and treat our dentist Soho at PS Dental Care as an ally in your fight for good oral health and hygiene, which helps you to enjoy a high standard of overall health. We are here for you to seek advice and treatment that will help to keep your teeth and gums at their best. Add brushing and flossing daily, preferably twice a day, and there should be less risk of needing any invasive dental treatments.
Good reasons for keeping to your check-ups
The check-up is a vital weapon in the fight for a good standard of oral hygiene, these appointments really should not be missed. At these appointments our dentist Soho can make a full examination of each tooth, the gums, and other areas of the mouth, noting any situation they feel needs to be highlighted for treatment or monitored going forward.
The check-up also allows a conversation to take place between the patient and our dentist, allowing any concerns to be discussed openly. Where necessary referral can be made to other dental professionals, such as a dental hygienist, whose expertise the patient may benefit from.
Another role of the dental check-up is to provide a time where a treatment plan can be drawn up and agreed upon based on our recommendations. This treatment plan places the individual patient at the heart of their treatment and allows this to determine any timescale for the treatment. Our dentist will also explain why it is needed in their case.
