As anyone who has ever had toothache or invasive dental work will know, prevention is always better than cure. It is without doubt the most important aspect of dentistry and our aim is to prevent the need for dental treatment by increasing awareness of dental disease and educating patients to avoid it. Regular and thorough examinations are essential to pick up the first signs of decay (caries) and gum disease (periodontal disease) before they cause significant harm. Oral cancer is becoming increasingly common and regular dental check-ups can help in its early diagnosis thereby greatly increasing the chances of successful treatment.
We therefore encourage our clients to make regular visits, offering them the reassurance their oral health is being expertly and frequently monitored and that any necessary treatment will be minimal.
