Regular Dental Checkups
Why should I go to the dentist regularly?
Many people only go to the dentist only if something hurts. Just remember you will only start having pain when the decay has reached the nerve meaning less options to save your tooth, more painful and more expensive. Decay or cavity in your teeth take months to years to develop and usually doesn’t hurt till it gets close to the nerve. Your dentist can detect the cavities at the beginning and most of them can be prevented with good oral hygiene. Early detection of tooth decay can save you from losing a tooth or root canal treatment, just a little filling and good oral hygiene can do the trick.
How often should I see the dentist?
We strongly recommend 6-12 monthly dental check-ups, Dr Singh will let you know at your appointment whether you are required to come every 6 months or 12 months.
How can I improve my/my family’s oral health?
- Try to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush in gentle circular motions. Always remember to brush and clean your tongue as well as bacteria accumulate there.
- Remember to clean in between your teeth once a day using floss or inter dental brushes.
- Avoid or reduce the intake of sugary acidic foods and drinks.
- Replace your toothbrush every three months.
- Try to choose tap water to hydrate over sugary fizzy drinks.
Why we offer first Complimentary Consultation?
A lot of people hesitate in going to the dentist due to bad past experiences or unknown costs that could be associated with dental work or they are worried that they walk in and before they know it, they will be slugged with a substantial bill for work (they didn’t know about or unsure if they actually needed). To overcome these obstacles in visiting the dentist, we offer a no obligation free initial dental checkup in which the dentist will check your mouth, jaw, teeth and gums that you may have concerns about. The dentist will then give treatment options and associated costs. You never know you may not need anything or what you need is minor at the moment but if left unattended it could turn into a painful costly procedure. So take this opportunity to get a free consult with our experienced dentists with no obligations attached.

- Digital images

Positive feedback from our new patients backs our complimentary consultation decision.

What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is infection and inflammation of the structures around the tooth which includes your gum, the cementum that covers the root, the periodontal ligament and the alveolar bone. In the earlier stages infection only affects the gums and then proceeds to the other areas if untreated. Gum disease also effects your overall health, there is a strong correlation between gum disease and heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, premature births and respiratory diseases. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria in the plaque. You can prevent gum diseases by following good oral hygiene and seeing your dentist on regular basis.
Professional dental clean every 6-12 months saves you from major dental work, gum disease and guides you towards healthy oral health.
