We all want a long-lasting, healthy-looking smile. Unfortunately, maintaining good oral health isn’t a case of a one-off dental visit or treatment. It’s a lifetime of consistent and thorough preventive dental care.
You would be surprised how quickly your oral hygiene can deteriorate without attention. Even healthy gums can succumb to gum disease in as little as five days. Without dental treatment, this can leave you with bleeding, painful and swollen gums, and can eventually lead to tooth loss.
That’s why it’s crucial that you keep up with consistent preventive measures. This will help to reduce your plaque and tartar build-up, preventing decay and a range of dental problems.
The best thing you can do for your teeth is to keep up with your dental checkups. Regular visits to our dental team will help prevent gum disease (periodontal disease), bleeding gums and decay. We will advise you on a diet, smoking cessation and oral hygiene instruction. We can arrange treatments to ensure that your teeth are meticulously cleaned, and all plaque and tartar deposits are removed.
Your dental check-up will identify any early signs of tooth decay and whether you need any treatments. Regular dental visits can be the difference between saving your natural teeth or losing them.
Even if you have undergone cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as dental implants or veneers, it’s still crucial you attend your checkups to maintain oral hygiene.
To keep your teeth healthy, you should visit your dentist every six months. Allander Dental Care will help you keep to your appointment schedule by sending you reminders.
However, some people may be more prone to gum disease than others, so we may recommend visiting us for more frequent appointments. Increased tobacco and alcohol use can lead to poor oral health, while people with diabetes and pregnant women may also need more regular dental checkups.
Dental care for children is also a priority at Allander Dental Care, and we’re part of the Childsmile programme, which is making a real difference to the oral health of Scotland’s kids. If you’re looking for a top-quality family dentist near you, don’t hesitate. Call us on 0141 956 3191 to book a check-up.
