We realise it’s tempting to put off regular check-ups with Dr David Brown, your dentist in Leeds, especially if you don’t think there’s anything wrong with your teeth. However there are lots of advantages in having regular check-ups and hygiene appointments at Leeds City Dental care, and in the longer term it could save you money and time.
Common Dental Diseases are Preventable
Common diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease are easily preventable through proper dental care, and whenever you visit our Leeds surgery you’ll be provided with a full assessment of your current dental health, including recommendations on how to improve it.
Part of your regular check-up will include an examination for mouth cancer, a preventative dental care measure that could potentially save your life. We will also want to take dental x-rays at regular intervals, as these enable early detection of any lesions or cavities that are not visible to the naked eye. Most people will only require x-rays every couple of years or so, and modern x-rays only emit a tiny amount of
Radiation, so they are extremely safe.
Early detection of dental diseases ensures that treatment is quicker and much more effective, as for example undetected gum disease can eventually progress into a chronic condition that requires regular treatment; in comparison the early signs of gum disease are easily cured, and preventative dental care will help ensure they do not return.
Ask Our Experienced Staff for Help and Advice
If you have any dental issues, then we do urge you to discuss these with our staff as you’ll find they are more than willing to help you. We can also give you practical help in improving your oral hygiene by demonstrating the correct way to brush and floss, as we are aware many people find this tricky.
Nervous? Don’t Let That Put You off visiting our Surgery
We know many people feel apprehensive over dental visits, and that some actively avoid dentists in Leeds until they are in pain. Don’t let this happen to you, as Leeds City Dentalcare has lots of experience in treating nervous patients, and we can help you conquer your fears so you can receive essential dental treatment. Just ask our kind and friendly staff for advice and help. You’ll find there are lots of things we can do to make the experience as pleasant as possible. Just remember that your first visit to our dental surgery is only for an examination, and there’s nothing to fear as we won’t provide any treatment at this stage. Once we’ve assessed your dental health then we’ll discuss with you how to proceed and will work out something that you feel comfortable with.
Preventative dental care is hugely important, and is definitely something that we place a great deal of emphasis on. Our dentist in Leeds and dental team are already well aware of how oral health affects general health, and of the connection between dental health and many debilitating or even life-threatening diseases. Preventative dental care checks only take an hour or so every six months which is a very small amount of time out of anyone’s schedule. We open at 8 AM four days out of five each week, and we stay open till 6 PM on Thursdays, making it easy for most people to fit in a dental appointment before or after work.
