Preventative care is better than cure. Advice that has been passed down generations, but ignored nonetheless.
Our practice strongly believes in preventive treatments and regimens rather than reactive dentistry for a problem that has advanced too far. Our dentists and hygienists will provide tailored advice on oral hygiene regimes and dietary advice, a preventive care approach necessary for the longevity of your teeth.
However, a nervousness of dentistry is a common reason of avoidance of dentists and as such oral advice. We at West Wickham Dental Practice, will take the time to make you feel at ease and explain your needs in a caring and empathetic manner.
Regular dental check up, professional hygiene sessions and an effective at-home cleaning regimen are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. The dentist and hygienist will also stress the need for healthy lifestyle choices that can otherwise have a serious impact on the health of your gums, teeth and your risk of oral cancer.
