Prevention is better than cure.
Preventative dentistry is at the heart of Garden Haven Dental’s philosophy.
Having regular 6 monthly check ups will ensure that any issue is dealt with promptly, at an early manageable stage. This ensures that the incidence of any future pain, tooth fracture or gum recession is minimised.
This means that you will then be less likely have to take time off work, and will eventually spend less time visiting the dentist for emergency appointments.
Scale & Clean (Hygiene Appointment)
A thorough clean of your teeth is carried out using gentle instruments that do not require unnecessary pressure to be applied to your teeth. Having regular 6 monthly cleans will ensure that the amount of calculus (tartar) built up around your teeth and underneath your gums (around the sensitive part of your teeth) is at a minimum.
Plaque is a film that coats the surface of your teeth and gums. It can be removed with daily brushing, however there will always be spots that are missed. We can ensure that all plaque is removed in this appointment.
At Home Oral Care
As a daily practice we recommend that you brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. We can offer you tips on how to improve your brushing technique to ensure that you are keeping your mouth as clean as possible. Flossing is an important, and often neglected, part of your oral hygiene and we will show you how you can do this quickly and efficiently.
We will be able to give you tips on how to prevent decay, including looking at how your lifestyle and diet can affect your oral health.
