There are many things we can help with as dentists when it comes to your oral health in Hammersmith. We work within three general realms of dentistry to offer you a complete all-round care. These realms are preventive, restorative and cosmetic. By taking advantage of our skills in all three, you can achieve that smile that you have always wanted to have and you can enjoy it for life.
Let’s talk about preventive care
This is perhaps the most important field of dentistry, as without preventive care, we are fighting a losing battle. We arm you with knowledge and tools that you can use to support your teeth every day.
Oral health in Hammersmith happens between visits, not only when you come into the dental practice for a scale and polish. So by ensuring that you are brushing and flossing your teeth daily, avoiding sugary foods as best you can and making sure you wash out your mouth after eating food or drinking beverages that may stain your teeth, you are protecting and caring for your teeth as they wage war against plaque, bacteria and cavities.
Each tooth needs the support of all the others. When one tooth is compromised and either needs to be removed or restored, then it is likely that the surrounding teeth are going to be negatively affected.
By listening to a dentist about any particular issues that you may be more susceptible to because of genetics, lifestyle choices or diet, you may be able to take proactive steps in maintaining the health of your mouth.
What happens if I have let it get too far?
This does happen and we want you to know that our non-judgemental dentists are here to help. We avoid causing feelings of guilt and look forward to the future, rather than speaking about things in the past.
By offering you a range of different solutions if there are choices available, you are able to make an informed decision about what is best for your health of your smile, as well as your overall well-being.
It is important for you to make decisions quickly, so that infection or decay doesn’t become something more sinister than it already is. Until you repair the situation, you will find that the pain you experience, or the issue itself will not go away.
By coming in to see us every six months, we can catch early signs of disease or decay so that we can tackle the issue before it becomes too problematic. As with most things, preventive care is more effective than finding a solution to an issue once you present with symptoms.
