Keep it regular with your dentist in Harley Street

Are you having a busy day? A busy week? Month? Year? Life? We bet you are. It seems that no matter how many gadgets we invent to make the day go by with less effort, the more we seem to run around. With work, doing things for the kids and trying to fit in the odd bit of exercise, the day is over before it has begun and seemingly important tasks can get put off so many times that they are officially forgotten.

Dentist in Harley StreetIt’s understandable that going to the dentist in Harley Street might be one of those things on your ‘forgotten-to-do list’ but if it is, you need to put it back at the top of your actual to-do list. Here’s why:

Coming to the dentist in Harley Street for a check-up is how we keep an eye on what’s going on in your mouth. When we peer into your mouth and gently poke at your teeth and gums, we are looking for signs of tooth decay, tooth damage and gum disease.

The earlier we catch any signs of decay, damage or disease, the easier they are to treat. Better a tiny filling than a massive one. Better to know you may have to step up your oral hygiene routine a bit, than succumbing to gum disease. And so on, and so on. The longer you leave any problems to chance, the more expensive and invasive they will become to fix.

The last resort for most tooth problems is extraction and replacement, and this can lead to a whole new level of expense and hassle, especially for some treatments.

Twice a year please

Come to Harley Street Dental Clinic twice a year for a check-up and a scale and polish with the dental hygienist. The latter removes any build-up of tartar and plaque, the acids from which are the root cause of decay and gum disease. If you do that, and carry out a diligent oral health routine at home, you stand a good chance of hanging onto your teeth.

Book yourself in now and get back on track with your teeth.
