Dental diseases impact considerably on self-esteem and quality of life and can be expensive to treat. Regular Dental and Hygienist appointments are essential to maintain Oral Health and give you confidence on your everyday life.
Teeth are important in enabling consumption of a varied diet and in preparing food for digestion. In modern society, the most important role of teeth is to enhance appearance, which is very important determining an individual’s integration into society. Teeth also play an important role in speech and communication.
Cleaning your teeth and gums effectively is the best way to avoid bad breath or halitosis. Regular Hygienist appointments will help to reduce the amount of plaque and bacteria in your mouth, which can increase the risk of developing gum problems and consequent higher risk of tooth loss.
Nutrition may also exacerbate periodontal and infectious diseases. The most significant effect of nutrition on teeth is the local action of diet in the mouth on the development of dental caries and enamel erosion. Dental erosion is increasing and is associated with dietary acids, a major source of which is soft drinks. The Hygienist will take time to discuss with you and may ask you to fill in a diet sheet so she can give you advice regarding what will help you.
Regular dental check-ups will help to detect early caries before they develop into extensive destructive cavities, and prevent the development of new ones.

Routine dental appointments are essential to maintain good oral health and a happy smile. A standard dental check-up is carried out by an experienced, qualified dentist and is the best way to spot any problems with your mouth before they become serious. Both adults and children require routine dental appointments on a regular basis because preventative dentistry is the key to keeping your mouth healthy.
Routine dental appointments are usually carried out every six months, but the number of times you need to attend these appointments varies from patient to patient. Some patients may require more frequent visits, while others may need to come into the practice less often – your dentist will advise you on how often you need a regular check-up.
