Prevention is always better than a cure

February 14, 2014

By visiting your dentist every six months you can prevent serious dental problems

There are good reasons dentists recommend you make two visits a year. Firstly, two visits a year allow dentists to clean your teeth in ways no amount of brushing and flossing can. Secondly, it allows dentists to check your oral health. By taking x-rays every 2 years and having a thorough look at your teeth, dentists are able to discuss the best path of action for you.

…because your natural teeth are your natural teeth, and nothing else feels the same.

At Orchard Dental we give our patients the best dental advice to ensure optimal dental hygiene. We are also able to assess the health of your teeth and keep you fully informed.
