At Peckham Family Dental Care we have a strong focus on preventive dentistry. We want people to feel confident that their teeth and gums are healthy, and that their breath is fresh.
Preventive dentistry means helping you to have healthy, functional teeth for life. This means helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and to ensure you don't suffer from other problems such as an incorrect bite. Our dental examinations also include a potentially life-saving mouth cancer screening, this is why it is so important not to neglect your teeth.
Hygiene appointments are vital too - they help you to avoid or combat gum disease. This is a common condition, and can cause bad breath, and sore, swollen or bleeding gums. If left untreated, it can eventually cause tooth loss. Gum disease can also affect your overall health, with links now established between gum disease, heart disease, diabetes and strokes.
