Taking good care of your mouth, teeth and gums is a worthy goal in and of itself. Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease, and can help you keep your teeth longer, as you get older.
Clinical evidence has proven that going regularly to your dentist is beneficial for you and your health. Our recommendations are that you should have your teeth checked and cleaned at least twice a year, though your dentist and dental hygienist. They may recommend more frequent visits depending on your needs. Regular dental exams and cleaning visits are essential in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums.
Literature/ video will now be emailed to you after your oral health appointments to keep you informed.
When you come in for your check-ups and hygienist appointments we want you to get involve. Bring in your toothbrush.

When we first see you, we will provide you with a thorough check-up so we can assess your oral health. We complete an examination of your head and neck and look inside your mouth to check the condition of your teeth, gums, tongue and cheeks. We may take x-rays to work out what sort of treatments you will need.
