Prevention is better than cure. This also applies in dentistry. Even if you are blessed with a good denture, it is important to check your teeth regularly. This will prevent caries and possible gum disease. With good maintenance you will prevent expensive and extensive treatments.
By prevention we mean
- The half-yearly check.
- Dental cleansing: removing dental calculus (which can cause gum disease) and polishing of the teeth.
- Application of fluoride to protect the enamel.
- Instruction of oral hygiene: we explain how to brush best, which toothbrush is most suitable.
