Invest in preventive care with a dentist in Loughborough
During a routine visit our dental practitioner may check for cavities, as patients can overlook them. Luckily not all cavities cause pain, but we do recommend seeking treatment as soon as possible. Cavities are known to attack the enamel on your teeth and if left untreated they may move on to attack the soft tissue found underneath. If you fail to treat cavities and decay progresses it may result in an infection leaking into your bloodstream. We highly recommend seeking treatment as early as possible to reduce these risks to your health and wellbeing.
A general check-up is a wonderful way to check for any decay, plaque, and tartar as well as any other potential problem areas before they evolve into something more serious.
Did you know that your oral care is in fact linked to your overall health? Poor oral hygiene can be linked to a variety of diseases including the likes of diabetes, osteoporosis, and even cardiovascular disease.
What are some of the benefits of regular dental check-ups?
