Your mouth deserves to receive professional care and it’s essential to have regular dental health appointments, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and premature births. A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care, the risks can be easily controlled.
Regular visits are important
It is important to your oral health and overall wellbeing that you visit the dentist regularly as research has found that patients who visit the dentist regularly are more likely to enjoy:
- less dental decay due to regular hygiene
- smaller fillings, because problems are caught early
- a decreased chance of experiencing toothache
- brighter, more attractive teeth; stronger gums and fresher breath
Combined for your convenience
Dental and hygiene appointments at Clarendon House Dental Centre are often combined because it’s useful for the patient, hygienist and dentist to all be present at the same time to discuss your care. It also reduces the number of visits you will need, making the whole process more convenient for you.
Give your child the best start possible
Education is the key to securing lifelong dental health and we teach our younger patients the best way to care for their teeth and show them that a visit to the dentist can be fun. We encourage you to bring your child in with you from around their first birthday so that they can grow up comfortable, calm and happy at dental appointments.
Our focus also includes educating parents to enable them to support their children’s dental health and lead by example. Healthy habits often run in families.
