The importance of regular dental visits

Regular visits to the dentist are essential not just to your oral health, but to your general health and wellbeing too. Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester offers a full range of general dental treatments, with a firm focus on preventative dentistry, and a range of ways to get your teeth and gums back to healthy condition if any problems are found.

Standard advice is to visit your dentist every six months for a general oral health check. However, some people need to come more frequently, perhaps if you have a condition that needs monitoring or if you are at a higher risk of developing gum disease. You should always listen to your dentist’s advice, and attend as regularly as they tell you.

There are certain circumstances, for example if you are pregnant, when your dentist may want to see you more often. Pregnancy is an exciting time, but can cause oral health issues, particularly if you suffer from bad morning sickness.

General dentistry in Leicester

At Aesthetic Smiles we are passionate about preventative dentistry – helping to stop problems before they start, and nipping them in the bud if any treatment is required. As with most health problems, the sooner you start treating them, the quicker and easier treatment will be. Particularly with such conditions as gum disease (which most people are likely to experience at some point in life) early intervention is key to rapid and successful recovery.

Our Leicester dental practice offers general dentistry for the whole family, including a range of preventative treatments including fissure sealant and fluoride varnish designed to help keep your children’s teeth in good condition.

If you do require standard dental treatment, such as fillings, crowns, or root canal therapy, we use The Wand to deliver pain-free injections, ensuring that you will be comfortable at all stages of treatment.
