If you have not seen a dentist for 6 months we usually combine the examination appointment with a routine clean. The reason for this is to ensure good oral health and to prevent gum disease – Gingivitis. Gingivitis is usually painless which means it can often go unnoticed. Your regular dental check-up may be the most reliable way to find out if you have gum disease. We also teach assistive techniques to help you keep your gums in top shape. If your teeth become wobbly, gums are inflamed or bleed with brushing or flossing be sure to book in for an examination.
