24 Oct Not Just Counting Numbers… Your dental health check is more than meets the eye!
Regular dental check ups are essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums. This is why the team at Bridgeways Dental recommend that you visit twice a year. A lot goes on in that appointment, and it’s not just checking your teeth for cavities. Your dentist will start by having a short discussion with you about any problems or concerns you may have with your teeth and mouth, anything you have noticed in the previous six months, or anything you may like to improve.
Next we look at the condition of your teeth, check for any signs of decay or broken restorations, taking any necessary x-rays to help us with our diagnosis and we work with you to plan the best treatment for you.
We also evaluate the health of your gums for signs of gum disease. Plaque and tartar, as well as bleeding gums and bad breath, can be a sign of an underlying gum condition; our patients love to see our dental hygienist for advice, cleaning, and prevention of gum disease.
The best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums is to join our Bridgeways Dental Membership Plan: for £19.16 per month your routine maintenance (two examinations and hygiene visits annually) is covered, and you get a fantastic 10% discount on any treatments provided!
