What is general dentistry?
National statistics for the UK have shown that one third of the population suffer with some form of dental problem in their lifetime. There are a number of ways that you can protect yourself from falling into this category. Often the reason for this is because people have a fear of dentists and therefore avoid visiting their dentist at all costs. However, it is these people that then fall foul of dental problems. It is, therefore, essential that you keep up with appointments and visit our dentist in Tunbridge Wells at least every three to six months to maintain oral hygiene and to ensure that your teeth are all in order.
Our general dentist will be able to do a professional clean for you and can also offer you whitening services should you require this. If our dentist finds that you are in need of a filling or a crown they will inform you and book you in for that as soon as they are able to. The sooner these minor problems are dealt with the better, as this avoids major issues from developing in the future.
What can we do for children?
Teaching your children about dental health from an early age is a must! If you get them into the habit of brushing their teeth twice daily as soon as they start developing them, then you will find that as they grow older they will have fewer dental issues. The main cause of tooth problems in children is too much sugary food such as sweets, cakes, chocolate, and fizzy drinks. Therefore you should always ensure that once they have indulged in these treats that they brush their teeth. Sugar sticks to the teeth and causes bacteria to build up which can then lead to issues such as gum disease. We recommend that you bring your children to our dentist at least every six months from as early as possible and maintain this throughout their childhood. This will ensure that their teeth are being taken care of properly. We also recommend that you invest in an electric toothbrush for your child as these are far more efficient than manual toothbrushes, particularly for children who are unlikely to brush as carefully as adults. One added benefit is that up until the age of 16 your child is entitled to free dental appointments and treatment. Therefore take advantage of this and help your children maintain healthy teeth and gums.
