How regular visits to the dentist preserve your dental and general health
A dentist plays an important role in protecting your dental and general health at all stages of life, from the moment you get your first tooth as a baby to after you’ve lost all of your natural teeth in old age. Victoria Road Dental Clinic in Ruislip offers a full range of general and preventative dentistry, designed to keep your smile happy and healthy for life.
Growing old doesn’t have to mean tooth loss. More older people than ever before skill have their natural teeth. To help ensure you keep yours for the rest of your life, you need to visit your dentist and hygienist regularly, and practise effective hygiene at home.
Victoria Road Dental Clinic in Ruislip welcomes new patients of all ages. By bringing a child to see the dentist soon after their first teeth erupt, you help to set them up with good habits for life. Any potential problems can be spotted at an early stage, before they have a chance to become serious. Early dentist visits have also been proven to help prevent dental phobia later in life.
Your Ruislip dentist can provide preventative treatments including fissure sealant and fluoride varnish, which will strengthen the teeth and help to prevent tooth decay.
The teenage years often involve orthodontic treatment, and again a dentist can spot early warning signs of orthodontic issues, to make your teen’s treatment less invasive and more comfortable, often negating the need for dental extractions.
Adults need to visit the dentist at least every six months to keep their oral health in good condition. Conditions such as gum disease have also been linked to a range of general health problems, including diabetes, heart and lung disease, and strokes. Tooth loss can damage your ability to eat a healthy diet as well as shattering your confidence, so visiting our Ruislip dental clinic for regular check-ups can be beneficial to your overall health and well-being.
Even patients who wear full dentures still need to attend regular check-ups, to ensure their gums are in healthy condition and their dentures fit well. We offer dental implants to stabilise dentures at our Ruislip clinic.
