We are passionate about preventative dentistry here at Helix Dentistry, because we know that good oral health can help lead to a healthy lifestyle.
How will preventative dentistry help me?
Our focus is on providing the very best preventative dental care which includes oral hygiene appointments, education, and dietary advice. Our friendly dental team love educating patients and we want to ensure you receive all the information you need to maintain a healthy smile. Your regular dental exams include oral cancer screenings, plus a quick and non-invasive examination designed to detect any small changes to the tissues inside your mouth.
How can preventative dental care help my general health?
Clinical research has shown a link between gum disease, a common infection affecting the gums, and numerous health problems. These include diabetes, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and some cancers. When you come to see us, we will ask that you fill in a detailed medical health questionnaire so we can provide the most appropriate dental care for you. By taking a holistic approach towards your dental care, we hope to protect your smile and your overall health.
