Unfortunately many people don’t visit their dentist until they get toothache. In most cases this pain can be avoided by good oral hygeine and regular dental check ups. Good oral hygeine means effectively removing decay causing plaque from your teeth and gum surfaces. At City Dental we can show you how to do this and also show you which toothbrush is most suitable for your mouth. Our hygeinists are highly skilled and will use professional polishes and pastes to remove any plaque and tartar which cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. At your six monthly dental check up we look for early signs of decay and gum disease so that we can easily treat them before they progress and cause toothache which becomes more difficult to treat. At City Dental we strongly believe in the motto – prevention is better than the cure!!
