Tooth decay and gum disease are still on the rise in the UK – and that means more and more people are having to deal with the expensive consequences of tooth extractions and replacements. But it’s not just about the cost to your bank balance – there is a proven link between poor oral hygiene and chronic health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. So it really does pay to step up your oral hygiene routine! While your personal oral hygiene will keep your dental health under control, your visits to Elmet Dental Care will allow us to spot and eliminate problems before they become serious, and clear away the plaque and tartar that brushing can’t reach. As well as educating patients on the benefits of good oral health, the hygienist is also qualified to offer advice about diet and lifestyle. At Elmet Dental Care, we combine convenient, high-tech treatments with expert advice to keep you on the road to a lifelong healthy smile.
