Many changes can occur in your mouth in just a matter of months, which is why Malcolm Harbour the principal dentist here at Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich advises patients to visit at least every 12 months, ideally every six.
Regular visits to Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich allow us to spot any issues early before they become painful or more expensive to treat. No matter how meticulous your oral hygiene regime, bacterial plaque builds up and this can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.
Visiting the dentist should be an important part of your overall health routine especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, bacterial lung infections, diabetes and premature births. Some 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled.
It is vital to your oral health and overall wellbeing that you visit the dentist and hygienist at least once a year. If it has been longer than this since you last visited a dentist, we would urge you to make an appointment as soon as possible.
Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich High Street has a well-established team and provides outstanding hygiene care to prevent and manage gum disease. Don’t worry, we won’t shout at you if it’s been a while since your last appointment! We will be very pleased that you have decided to take your dental health seriously in 2017.
Research has found that patients who visit the dentist regularly are more likely to enjoy:
- fewer fillings because problems are caught early
- less dental decay due to regular examinations
- a decreased chance of experiencing toothache
- more attractive teeth, stronger gums and fresher breath
