Bacteria constantly builds up between your teeth and under your gums hence it is important to check every 6 months that there is no decay or early gum problems and then to remove the bacteria thoroughly. We also take the time to discuss any habits that may affect your teeth and gums such as smoking, grinding, drinking acidic drinks such as soft drinks or wine, reflux as well as any medical conditions that may impact on your oral health.
Regular visits reduces the risk of future major dental work – as the saying goes prevention is better than a cure. It gives a much higher chance of keeping all your teeth for life .
We periodically take digital xrays to get a closer look in between your teeth to make sure bacteria that we might not be able to see is diagnosed and treated.
We also show you on our intraoral camera any areas that may need more attention to brushing
