Why do I need a dental check-up?

A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.

How often should I have a dental check-up?

After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next check-up could be as short as three months if you are experiencing gum disease. Generally we recommend you attend for a check up and clean every 6 months.

How Flossing can help your general health?

Cleaning your teeth and controlling gum disease is not just about keeping your teeth – it’s about staying healthy and possibly even staying alive. Extensive research now shows us that some of the “toxins” from gum disease travel around the body causing problems in many other parts, specifically the heart, and for women during pregnancy can cause premature birth. So it is not just a matter of keeping your teeth clean.
