And Avoiding the need for Dental Implants in Kent
While it is true that Parrock Street is a major provider of dental implants in Kent, our services are far more wide ranging, and one thing we are particularly hot on is preventative dental care. Although we can restore your smile with cosmetic dentistry and can replace lost teeth through the use of dental implants, we are still very keen on helping to make your natural teeth lost as long as possible. This is something that can only be achieved through having great dental care, and through visiting Dr Rik Trivedi or another of our dentists at regular intervals for complete check-ups, and through seeing one of our dental hygienists at the same time for a scale and polish.
There Is No Substitute for Regular Dental Care
Regular check-ups are incredibly important as they enable our dentists to detect any early signs of decay or other diseases that can be treated before they present any significant problems. It’s an excellent way of lessening the risk of suffering toothache or other problems that require emergency treatment and which can be extremely uncomfortable or painful. Regular dental care helps to eliminate the risk of needing treatments such as root canal therapy, and is a far more cost-effective way of maintaining your oral health rather than waiting for significant problems to develop. That regular check-up could even save your life as it also includes a screening for oral cancer. This disease is thankfully pretty rare, but as with all types of cancers treatment is much more successful in the early stages.
Your visits with our dentist in Kent are a vital part of this preventative dental care regime. Scaling and polishing your teeth helps to remove the build-up of calculus or hardened plaque bacteria that would otherwise increase the risk of gum disease. Gum disease, or periodontal disease is a major cause of tooth loss is one of the main reasons why many people need to have a dental implant.
Regular dental care should continue at home, and it probably takes less than 10 minutes a day to brush and floss your teeth properly. If you’re unsure about your technique or would simply like some tips on how to improve it then ask the dental team at Parrock Street for advice. The great thing about regular dental care is that it could give you more money to spend on treatments to improve the look of your teeth, such as whitening or veneers.
