Many people think that as long as they brush and floss their teeth regularly, visiting the dentist every so often is not necessary. Not only is this untrue, but also dangerous. No matter how well you take care of your teeth and gums at home, it’s imperative to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and dental cleanings. Moreover, in the rare case of a dental emergency, a dentist is the only person who can help.
Dental cleanings at PS Dental Care involve more than simply removing plaque and polishing your teeth. Our experienced dentists will cooperate with our dental hygienists to provide patients with customised treatment and preventive dental care.
Recognising and treating oral health problems
Patients who visit the dentist regularly are less likely to be surprised by potential oral health problems. This is because, they have undergone many examinations to determine if they suffer from specific oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Our dentist in Soho will examine your teeth carefully, look for any abnormalities in your mouth and surrounding areas and will also take x-rays if needed.
Through this process, your dentist in Soho will be able to identify a health issue that requires immediate attention. Untreated tooth decay and gum disease, for instance, can cause oral health problems that often require extensive and pricey treatment. For this reason, prevention is better than cure.
More importantly, our dentist in Soho (or a dental hygienist), will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and polish them in order to prevent bacteria from entering into your bloodstream.
Further preventive measures such as stain removal, sealants and the adjustment of dentures and other restorations can also be performed during a dental check-up for optimal oral health.
We will use specialised tools to ensure that your teeth and gums are clean and disease-free. We will also provide advice on proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as deliver information on a healthy diet and nutrition.
Teeth need lots of care and attention to ensure continuing good oral health. Establishing a good oral hygiene routine and visiting the dentist in Soho frequently, can help protect your teeth and gums from serious harm.
