Preventing problems with your teeth and gums

The best dental care is what you do at home, throughout your life, to take care of your teeth and gums.

We’ve put together some helpful pages for you, both to explain what can go wrong and to help you look after your mouth properly.

If you’ve ever wondered whether you’re brushing or flossing properly, have a look at this page.

Periodontal (or gum) disease can cause real problems for your teeth as you age. This page explains what it is, how to avoid it and how dental hygienists and (as a last resort) periodontists can help.

We do urge you to make use of our dental hygienists. They can reach places you can’t reach, and regular appointments can help you keep on top of your own oral hygiene.
