Visiting the dentist every 6 months for a thorough examination and clean, enables us to detect any dental problem early and limit the extent of the problem. It is also essential to brush at least twice a day (after breakfast and dinner) and floss once a day. This helps prevent decay and gum disease.
Maintaining your teeth and gums as you age is an important step in sustaining your general health and well-being. Whilst exercising, eating right and regular health checks are important – looking after your teeth and gums is also essential. Good dental health will help you to lead a long, happy and healthy life.
It is essential that a dentist has a proper assesment of your mouth if this happens. We must establish why this has happened and is there any other damage or disease still present as to make sure that you are not going to continue having more issues from that area or other teeth and also alleviate any pain. Once that has been done we can then offer different options for closing the gap and restoring your smile to its former glory!
It is recommended that when your child reaches the age of 3 you should get them in to visit the dentist. This will ensure that we can monitor the development of their adult teeth when they start erupting.
