Sometimes we ignore our teeth until there is a problem but to keep your mouth problem free, it pays to look after them so that you can enjoy good oral health in the long-term. Caring for your teeth involves more than a quick brush twice a day, although proper attention at home is essential. Having a healthy mouth means choosing a good diet, ensuring good gum health and early detection so that issues can be dealt with before they become severe. Regular check-ups with your dentist allows them to assess the health of your teeth and mouth, advise on care and carry out prompt treatment if necessary.
Healthy teeth and beautiful smiles
Having strong teeth is essential for carrying out everyday activities such as eating and speaking properly, but they also affect how you feel about your appearance. If your teeth are discoloured, damaged, missing or misaligned, it can make you feel less confident and may start to change how you interact with people. Londent in London Bridge provides a range of services for the whole family, including preventive dentistry, emergency care and cosmetic dentistry. Seeing your dentist regularly is a long-term investment, not just in your health but in how you look and even how you feel about yourself.
Supporting your changing needs
Regular dental check-ups keep your teeth well but if there are problems, you may need additional procedures. Crooked teeth are usually dealt with during childhood as the jaw is still developing but it is not too late for adults. Modern braces are effective, discreet and comfortable, so straighter teeth are easier to achieve and fit into your lifestyle. The problem of missing teeth can be solved using dental implants, bridges and dentures. If you are concerned about aesthetics then crowns, veneers, teeth whitening or facial enhancement may help. Your dentist can also help in dental emergencies with procedures such as root canal therapy, tackling abscesses, carrying our extractions and dealing with teeth that have been knocked out.
Ensuring a good relationship with your dentist means you can get the care you need for long-term wellbeing, quality of life and a beautiful smile.
