Realising that you need expensive restorative treatment for what were once relatively minor dental issues is the worst feeling. Tooth decay and gum disease often worsen without being detected – they’re the leading causes of tooth loss, so it’s not worth letting them slip under the radar.
Your mouth is full of over 6 billion different bacteria, some of which are harmless and even help to keep your mouth clean. Consumption of sugary foods and drinks cause the harmful kinds to form a layer of plaque over your teeth – they produce acids that quickly break down the tough enamel surface, leaving holes (or cavities). This damaging bacteria can also harden around your gums, causing them to become inflamed and swollen.
Regular brushing and flossing help to keep the nasty bacteria at bay, leaving your teeth relatively plaque-free. Alongside the work you’re putting in behind the scenes, it’s also crucial that you visit your dentist for a check-up every six months.
During your check-ups, we’ll examine your mouth for any early signs of tooth decay or gum disease – if we spot anything, we can provide treatment immediately to stop problems from developing. We’ll clean your teeth far more thoroughly teeth than you’re able to at home polish them, if you need it, to remove any surface stains. Last but not least, we’ll check for any signs of mouth cancer – this is extremely rare, but always best caught early.
As important as regular examinations are, we know they can come with a hefty price tag – especially near Chelsea. But you shouldn’t have to choose between your finances and your oral health, which is why we have developed our unique New Smile Fulham membership plan!
