What does front-line management offer?
Advice on your daily oral hygiene routine.
Regular monitoring of oral health for the first signs of any problems.
Scaling and polishing teeth and root surface debridement (periodontal treatment) to eliminate harmful plaque and tartar which can cause bad breath.
Dietary advice to help minimise the risk of decay.
We believe it is important that good oral hygiene habits should start from an early age and we offer hygiene appointments for children to encourage a positive attitude to oral health and this also aids acceptance of dental treatments when they become necessary.
