Preventative care

Clean teeth are important for your general health as well as the
health of your mouth. Studies are now showing a link between gum infections and heart disease. We are extremely fortunate have  an Oral Health Therapist working together with Dr Baker and Dr Wood to provide you with the best care possible when it comes to looking after your teeth and gums. Irene will go back to basics to ensure that you know the best ways to maintain a healthy mouth.

Her role is to get your mouth to a healthy state, give you that freshly cleaned feeling and, with proper instruction, help you maintain this at home.

Gingivitis is a common condition characterised by bleeding gums. This can lead to periodontitis, which destroys the bone support for your teeth and is one of the main reasons adults lose teeth. Quite often, patients are unaware they have this degenerative condition because periodontitis is painless even up to a very advanced stage. The first signs may be lose teeth or spaces opening up in your smile.

Infected gums are also a major cause of bad breath, so professional cleaning and ongoing care can help to eliminate this embarrassing problem.
