Helping you maintain a healthy mouth
Did you know that the two major causes of tooth loss – decay and gum disease – are preventable as well as treatable?
Our aim is to give you all the support, advice, encouragement and treatment you need to keep your teeth healthy as long as possible. And that can mean for life.
Your Personal Oral-Hygiene Programme
At your regular check-up we’ll assess your oral health, clean and scale your teeth, and show you the best way to keep your mouth and teeth plaque-free.
Ask us about:
- Diet: How what you eat affects your dental health
- Brushing effectively: The best way to brush your teeth for maximum cleaning
- Flossing and interdental brushing: Vital for cleaning between your teeth, round bridgework and crowns
Greenwood Dental Practice is very child-friendly! Bring your young children when you come for your check-ups – it’s a great introduction to regular dental care. And we strongly believe that if you start good oral hygiene habits young, you’ll keep them for life.
Sealing the chewing surfaces of your children’s teeth with a hard, permanent resin protects them from decay and the need for fillings. Safe, effective and painless to apply, fissure sealants can be applied as soon as possible after teeth erupt.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease
More teeth are lost in the UK through gum disease than through decay. The best way to stop this happening to your teeth is to keep them completely clean. We’ll help you keep your gums healthy with regular check-ups, scaling and polishing. Further treatments with antibiotic pastes and gels, and antiseptic chips are available if needed.
