In order to prevent dental problems and keep your teeth as clean as can be, we advise you to have a twice-yearly combined appointment with a dentist and a dental hygienist. The dentist will check if there are any problems with your teeth and the dental hygienist will clean your teeth and gums. After the cleaning our dental hygienists will give advice on how to look after your teeth. Good oral hygiene does not only prevent gum disease and cavities, it is also a very valuable addition to your overall health. It is known that healthy gums help to prevent heart disease.
