Ideally, in order to maintain your dental health and avoid gum disease, you should visit the dentist every six months for a check-up. But please don’t worry if it’s been longer than this. At Prospect Family Dental we offer a non-judgmental service, and welcome all patients, even those who may not have been to the dentist for years.
During your check-up our highly trained team will closely examine not just your teeth, but your gums and the rest of your mouth too. We are highly skilled in spotting problems before they become serious, and able to offer individual advice on maintaining your oral health. We pride ourselves on listening to our patients, and will always ask about whether you have had any recent problems that we can help with. We also offer dietary advice, advice on smoking and drinking, and advice on how to maintain your dental health at home.
Over time dental plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth. Plaque can be hard or impossible to remove at home, and if not kept in check can lead to more serious problems such as cavities and gingivitis. Our cleaning service can help with this. Our skilled team ensure that all tartar is removed as comfortably as possible using the latest cleaning instruments. We can also offer a scale and polish service to leave your teeth looking and feeling clean and healthy.
