Prevention for Better Health

Most people don’t realise how closely their general and oral health are related. Recent studies have shown a correlation between poor oral health and an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and pre-term and low birth-weight babies.

Smoking also affects your oral health as well as your general health. It is one of the main contributors to gum disease and is the biggest cause of oral cancer. Smoking also stains your teeth and is one of the causes of bad breath.

Prevent Problems Before They Occur

By attending regular oral health examinations, we can develop and put into practice effective treatment solutions while concerning problems are still in their early stages. This will eliminate the need for more extensive procedures, which are required when problems evolve.

Looking beyond the aesthetics of your teeth, we assess the health of all dental areas including your jaw alignment, tooth alignment and gum health. A complete profile of your oral and general health will enable us to diagnose existing and potential complications so that we can advise you on the most appropriate treatment required for your personal circumstance.
