Your teeth are essential to your quality of life. If you’ve ever had toothache, you’ll be familiar with how it compromises your day, especially when eating and drinking. When you consider your adult teeth need to last for maybe 65 plus years, if you want to keep your natural teeth, you need to take care of them.
At Garden View Dental Care, we want to support you in your dental journey, particularly highlighting preventive dentistry. Brushing and flossing your teeth is a good first step in taking care, however, because of the tiny gaps in between your teeth and how plaque gathers under the gum line, you do need to see a dentist in Buckinghamshire regularly.
6 monthly hygiene appointments
Initially we recommend seeing us once every 6 months so we can conduct a thorough oral examination. You may then need to see us more regularly if you require treatment or less often if you’re in good health.
No matter how healthy your teeth and gums, you will still need to see us for hygiene appointments. These are important for the prevention of gum disease and early detection of oral health problems. Plaque build-up is one of the leading causes of gum disease, which has long term implications for your health. Daily brushing leaves some plague behind that hardens to tartar, irritating the gums. If left, it can develop into a mild form of gum disease called gingivitis, which is painless so is often left undetected. Gingivitis itself is relatively harmless and can be treated easily, however without dental care it can develop into periodontal disease that has long term implications for your health.
In addition to taking care of your gum health, we also look for any early signs of decay, treating quickly to prevent cavities or tooth loss. We will also conduct a thorough oral cancer screening, ensuring quick and effective treatment should any abnormalities be found.
