Please don’t be – we are not here to pass judgement on you or your teeth. We are simply here to help you on your way to better oral health.
We love coming to work, but do realise it’s not everyone’s favourite place to be. Have you put off a visit to us because your life is busy or simply haven’t bothered in a long while? You may feel embarrassed about having left it so long, or you may have a little toothache, sore or bleeding gums. You may be worried about bad breath or have a smile that you think needs some help – there may even be the start of something that you are not yet aware of.
If this means you are reluctant to come in, in case we pass comment or ‘tell you off’. Then this is exactly the right time to call us.
Dental health is very important, not just for keeping our smile in check, but for our overall health too. If sticky bacterial plaque is allowed to build up it will lead to inflamed and bleeding gums. Researchers have found that the bacteria and inflammation in your mouth can also affect the health of your heart, or can lead to diabetes, dementia and rheumatoid arthritis.
Our role is to help you understand how best to look after your teeth and gums, including those really difficult to reach areas, so that you can achieve and maintain better oral health. A newfound oral health regime will positively benefit your overall health & well-being.
So to mark National Smile Month which runs from 18th May until 18th June, why not make time to call us and make an appointment for a consultation? If you are nervous, do tell us – there are ways we can help to put you at ease. And feel free to ask us any questions – we love ‘talking teeth’!
