Dental health

Looking after your teeth and gums is the key to reducing the amount of dental treatment you need - avoiding gum disease and tooth decay - and keeping your mouth healthy. With the joint efforts of the dentist, the hygienist and you, the patient, fillings and extractions can be avoided or at least kept to a minimum.

When you visit your dentist, he or she can advise on getting your teeth and gums into excellent condition, and work out a plan to help you keep them that way.
