We know that people who live in our capital city, London, always seem to be leading very busy lives. Often they are having to spend a couple of hours a day travelling across the city to go to and from work. Then they have their family and personal life commitments to attend to, and finally, they have to find the time to lead a social life. This can lead to them missing some of the little things they need to do in order to keep their bodies healthy, this could lead to them neglecting their oral hygiene needs.
It could be argued that all of a body’s health and hygiene requirements need taking care of. Our oral hygiene is one of the most important areas of our wellbeing and this means we should give our teeth, gums, and mouth the attention they need if we are to enjoy our lives free from serious dental issues.
At PS Dental Care our dentist Soho wants all of our patients to obtain and maintain the best standard of oral hygiene possible and we will go the extra mile to help our patients to achieve this goal. This is the reason we encourage our patients to stay in regular contact with our dental practice, by undergoing their dental check-ups and receiving any treatment they may require.
Remember your oral check-ups
As a dentist Soho, we are aware that the most common oral hygiene tool that many people forget about or neglect is the dental check-up that everyone should all attend on a regular basis. This is often the most important time any patient can spend with a dental professional. We urge you not to neglect the need to attend your dental check-ups.
This time with a dental professional allows them to examine your teeth, gums, and mouth fully, the results of which can be recorded and will help to develop any dental care plan you may need. Over time this will help to monitor your oral health and hygiene progress, allowing personalised information about your oral health to be collected and informing any plan that is created to meet your oral care needs.
Often the dental check-up time can be used to diagnose and monitor the early stage of a developing oral issue. This then allows for preventive measures to be taken that may stop any problem from becoming one that needs invasive dental treatment, such as a filling or tooth extraction. This is also the perfect time for referrals to be made to other types of dental professionals, should there be a need, such as an orthodontist or a hygienist.
A forgotten tool
One of the tools you may have forgotten about when it comes to your oral health is communication, as a dentist Soho who prides themselves on always listening to the concerns of our patients, we will always encourage you to voice your concerns and ask any questions you may have about any treatment being recommended to you.
Remember, the best way for you to obtain and maintain high-quality oral health is for you and our dental professional to work together as a team, in agreement about your oral health needs and expectations.
