We’re here to help you and your family to avoid problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, so you can keep your teeth for life.
You’ll need to attend regular dental examinations as these are an important part of preventive care, they will enable you to achieve and maintain a good level of oral health and will minimise treatment needs. They also help us to keep a close eye on what is happening in your mouth, and to spot potential problems at an early stage so they are easier to treat.
