We recommend seeing your dentist every 6 months. Regular dental visits are an important part of your overall health care program. It is not just about checking your teeth for cavities, your dentist will evaluate the health of your gums, check your bite and jaw alignment.
The dentist will exam your mouth, for any indications of oral cancer or other abnormalities. Often the mouth is the first part of the body to show changes that indicate “disease" in other parts of the body.
There are many recent studies that have shown a definite link between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimers, low birth weight babies and even erectile dysfunction.

Why do teeth need to be extracted?
When teeth are damaged due to decay, trauma or infection and can’t be repaired with a filling, a root canal treatment or a crown. They may need to be removed.
Some common reasons that a tooth may need to be extracted are:
- Infection and decay
- Loose teeth as a result of periodontal or 'gum disease'
- Crowding: When your teeth are overlapping or crooked you may need an extraction
- Trauma: If teeth or fractured or broken due to an accident and impossible to repair
The prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of the surrounding tissues of the teeth, i.e. gums and tooth supporting bones.
The sticky white biofilm that forms on your teeth is a bacteria filled plaque. This plaque builds up around the necks of the teeth and under the gums. The body develops an inflammatory response to this bacterial infection and it shows as red swollen gums that bleed on pressure. Pocket formation begins as the bone recedes in response to the inflammation.
Increased plaque builds up as the pocket deepens creating a vicious cycle of plaque build up, inflammation, and increasing pocket depth.
If left untreated this cycle will lead to tooth loss.
No needle, no drill, no pain pedodontics. This means children no longer have to have injections or drills to repair decayed teeth
Most people don't realize that good dental health can add valuable, healthy years to their lives. When dentists and physicians work together, medical outcomes will improve and healthy lives will be lengthened.

Endodontics is the treatment of inside the tooth itself.
The centre of the tooth consists of a hollow chamber and canal where the nerves and blood vessels that provide nutrition and sensation for each tooth are found - this is the root canal.
Root canal treatment is implemented when the tissues inside have become damaged. Either due to trauma, decay or infection. The diseased tissue is removed, the tooth is cleaned, sealed and protected. It's simple and painless.

Your Health Is Our Priority
The dentist will also check on your medications and the interactions they may have on your health.
Many people see their dentist more often than their GP which means the dentist may be the only doctor that is aware of all the medications that you are taking. They can coordinate with your medical doctor and discuss any treatment modifications that may be necessary to keep you healthy.
By seeing your dentist every six months on a regular basis and following recommended daily oral hygiene practices at home, you are more likely to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Remember a healthy body needs a healthy smile!
