PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY FROM YOUR NOTTING HILL DENTIST FOCUSES ON YOUR NEEDS
One of the aspects of our practice that we pride ourselves on is our desire to get to know each of our patients. Prevention is the best medicine and routine dental care is really a lot more complex than it may seem. While it is standard to examine teeth with x-rays, examination, and intraoral imaging, we tailor care around individual needs to promote optimal oral health for every person we see.
The health of gum tissue, we know from research, is critical to the appearance of the smile, to fresh breath, and to general health and wellbeing. We encourage patients in good oral health to visit us for examinations and cleanings every six months. Patients who are managing an issue such as gum disease may need to see the dentist more frequently. The additional care is highly beneficial when you consider the enormous detriment gum disease is to your health. This condition is more than a localized infection in the mouth; it has been linked to numerous diseases, including heart and respiratory disease and dementia.
Functionally speaking, gums provide necessary support to teeth. Maintaining healthy gums means protection from preventable tooth loss and from suffering the discomfort of chronic inflammation. Tissue that has become red and swollen, that feels sore, or that bleeds when you brush and floss is tissue that is inflamed. These are signs that you need to see your dentist for care to manage the effects of oral bacteria.
We work within the guidelines of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence to keep your smile healthy and attractive!
