Keeping teeth happy and healthy
Our teeth do a lot for us, day in, day out. That’s why it’s important to take good care of them. This involves brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing regularly, and taking the time to go and visit your dentist in Richmond. We at Sheen Dental are here to help get your oral health on track, so you can reap the benefits of healthy, happy teeth.
At your check-up we will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, tongue and cheeks to check everything is looking healthy. It is also a chance for you to tell us if you’ve experienced anything unusual or uncomfortable in your mouth since your last visit.
We will also be able to check how efficiently you are brushing your teeth and give advice on how to maintain a good cleaning routine.
A window to your general wellbeing
Your teeth are not separate to the rest of your body. If you’ve had any other general health problems they may affect your oral health, and vice versa. Keeping your oral health in shape will help keep you healthy from your teeth to your toes.
At the dentist in Richmond, we will be able to spot early signs of gum disease which has been thought to be linked to conditions such as lung disease, diabetes, bowel cancer, oral cancer and cardiovascular problems.
Don’t fear the dentist
If you tend to miss your trips to the dentist in Richmond because of dental phobia, we are here to help you. We will hear your worries and do our best to help make you feel at ease. We have separate consultation rooms where we can discuss any worries you may have in a non-judgemental atmosphere.
When waiting for treatment, you can relax with a newspaper or magazine and a hot drink in our waiting room.
How often do you need to go?
The number of visits to the dentist in Richmond depends on your oral health and whether you’ve had, or have, any treatment that needs checking up on. The general rule of thumb is to visit the dentist every 6 months, however some patients can get by with visiting once a year.
