At Thames Dental & Facial Care, we are passionate about oral and general health. We strongly believe that prevention is the key to good health and avoidance of dental and general health problems. Prevention is not difficult. All it involves is 6 monthly visits to our lovely practice and a comprehensive check up by our dedicated and helpful dentists. At Thames Dental & Facial Care we aim to keep your smile in great shape!
At the examination appointment, we comprehensively check the whole mouth, including not only the teeth, but also the soft tissues, gums, palate and jaws. This ensures we can pick up on any potential problems early, from common problems like gum disease to rare conditions such as oral cancer. We may need to take radiographs in order to check for problems that are not possible to identify just by a visual assessment. During your visits, we will talk about enhanced toothbrushing techniques, give preventative dietary advice and keep you up to date with the latest advances in dentistry. We are a modern forward-thinking team with modern ideas which revolve around genuine care for our patients. We always allow enough time for questions of any nature and we will be so happy if we can help and look after you.
Regular examinations enable us to lower our patients’ overall risk of dental disease. We also recommend regular visits to the hygienist, for scaling and polishing to reduce the bacterial load in the mouth, which can significantly lower the risk of gum disease as well as reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and even dementia. This can often be carried out at the same visit as the dental examination.
