We want to prevent dental problems from occurring or getting any worse. Our focus on a preventative approach can save significant time, discomfort and money.
Attending regular check ups with your dentist and hygienist means we can spot and address any issues before they become more of a problem and end up needing more involved and costly treatment. These problems may include:
As well as examining your teeth and detecting any issues, your dentist and hygienist can also scale and polish your teeth, removing the build-up of plaque and tartar. We will give you tips on how to look after your oral health at home, apply fissure sealants if necessary, and give tooth-friendly diet tips.
As well as visiting for your regular check up appointments, it is important to develop an effective routine at home. Brushing twice a day and cleaning between your teeth with floss or interdental brushes is vital for excellent oral health, as is avoiding too many sugary snacks and drinks. Encourage your children to start taking care of their teeth, as forming a brushing routine as early as possible will have great long term benefits. Also, consider giving up smoking, as this can exacerbate gum problems and cause staining.
At Dartford Road Dental we believe that quality dental care should be affordable to as many patients as possible. We can split the cost of certain treatments up to five years.
