Healthy Teeth For Life

Healthy teeth for lifeThe main risks to having healthy teeth for life are gum disease, cavities, teeth clenching/grinding and mouth cancer. You can avoid toothaches, cavities and gum disease and keep teeth healthy from childhood through old age if you follow good oral hygiene and adhere to a couple of rules.

  • Avoid sugary food and drinks as much as possible
  • Brush your teeth and use floss or Tepe brushes every night
  • Attend your dentist and hygienist regularly (preferably every 6 months) for early detection of problems
  • Wear a mouthguard for contact sports
  • Consider a night-time bite guard if you clench or grind your teeth

positive review  The level of care is excellent! My daughter chipped a tooth and they worked very hard to rebuild it for her. In addition - I had a crown fitted here - very reasonably priced. Something went wrong and I had some discomfort afterwards - Again - the level of care was fantastic and they went to great trouble to save my tooth and even redid the crown for me. Lovely to see a practice with consistency and huge integrity. Highly highly recommend.
