Visit your Dentist and look after your teeth

It is so important to visit your dental team so they can regularly monitor your teeth and general oral health.

As Dentists are experienced experts in oral healthcare, they are best placed to advise you on how to care for your teeth and mouth at home, they can also give advice on how your general lifestyle can affect your oral health.

Dentists are highly qualified to spot problems such as gum disease, that could lead to tooth loss. So, do not forget, if this is found early, these problems can be successfully remedied, before it is too late.

Your oral health and the link to your well-being

Visiting your dental practice is good for your oral healthcare. There have also been many studies over the last few years showing close links between your oral and general well-being.

As an example, in many cases, gum disease is thought to be related to a variety of medical conditions such as cardiovascular problems, lung disease, diabetes and even bowel cancer, with some recent research suggesting that there may be links between oral health and Alzheimer's disease as well. Developments such as these, show that visits to the dentist are an essential part of taking care of not only your dental hygiene, and your general well-being.
