Most patients require preventive dental care which entails an examination, scale and clean every 6, 8 or 12 months, depending on how healthy your teeth and gums are (the dentist will recommend which visit cycle is appropriate for you). Having your mouth checked regularly by a dentist helps diagnose any potential problems early such as gum disease, oral cancers and decay. Gum disease left untreated can result in the loss of bone around teeth, eventually leading to abscess’ or tooth loss. Decay left untreated can result in the need for large fillings, crowns, abscess’, root canal treatment, or extractions.
At Doucas Dental we have a dedicated team of dentists who provide gentle and regular care and are committed to providing professional scale and cleans whilst promoting good oral hygiene techniques to each and every patient.
