Benefits to You

Healthy lifestyle

A healthy mouth with strong teeth and gums affects every aspect of your life:

  • Enjoyment of food and drink and the nutrients they provide
  • Communication – speaking, singing, laughing and more
  • Boosting self-esteem and confidence

Regular dental checks ups can also detect the early signs of oral, facial and throat cancer

Healthy teeth

Dental hygiene enables us to eat, drink, smile and talk and keeps mouths free from pain and disease. We help people to take care of their teeth and provide tailored, ongoing care to prevent common problems such as:

  • Gum inflammation
  • Cavities
  • Tooth loss
  • Bad breath
  • Grinding teeth

Healthy heart

Scientific research indicates that people who look after their teeth and gums have a 24% lower risk of having a heart attack and a 13% lower risk of suffering a stroke.

According to ongoing studies, a regular scale and polish reduces the number of bacteria that cause gum inflammation and improves the function of blood vessels which boosts cardiovascular health.
