Benefits of a Dental Examination
Keep your natural teeth for longer – the dentist will scale and polish your teeth removing any plaque build-up which if left can cause inflammation, irritate gums and lead to gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults in the UK. If required the dentist may refer you to the hygienist for further treatment.
Enjoy a whiter, brighter smile – the dentist will be able to remove stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, smoking, some medications and other products. Improving the appearance of your teeth and brightening your smile.
Save money – your routine dental appointments ensure that any problems are detected early, reducing the need for extensive dental treatment.
