At Sherwood House Dental Practice, we place a great amount of emphasis on the prevention of gum disease. Gum disease can have an impact on your total body health as well as your oral health, and has been linked to a number of serious illnesses such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Therefore, it is more important than ever to treat gum disease in its earliest stages.
Preventative dentistry is the foundation of sustainable oral health care and we believe that diagnosis, treatment and maintenance of gum disease are all of paramount importance.
Our hygienists take care of all aspects of preventative treatment and play a vital role as part of Sherwood House Dental’s experienced team. Work carried out by the hygienists may reduce future restorative treatment with the dentist meaning that costs may be reduced.
