Your oral health can affect your overall sense of health and well-being as well. Strong, healthy teeth can not only lead to improved nutrition, but there are a lot of connections within the body that we don’t even know about yet.
For example, a link has recently been found between heart disease and gum disease. Several theories are still being investigated about how this link exists, but the lesson here is that a holistic outlook on life is important in understanding how our bodies work.
A Pinner dentist will view your mouth and body as a holistic entity, in other words will innately understand that your body is a complete organism that is linked in many ways. This is why when you come in to see us, we urge you to inform us of any changes that have been going on in your life, whether you feel they are important to your oral health or not.
By speaking to your Pinner dentist about a pregnancy, feelings of stress, or medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, we are able to tailor our examinations and treatment plans to suit your personal needs at the time.
Your health and well-being is of the utmost importance to your Pinner dentistand it is our duty to provide you with a service of outstanding care that leaves you feeling respected, understood and at ease.
We seek to provide you with a range of different treatment options that are available to you for the many different conditions that we face on a day to day basis. This allows you to make an informed decision about which plan of action would be best suited to you.
What to expect when you come in to see us
With this in mind, we want you to be as mentally prepared as possible upon coming in to your first consultation with us. If you have a selection of previous dental scans or notes, then feel free to bring these in with you, so that we are able to paint a bigger picture about your dental history.
Talk to us about any previous dental procedures that you have experienced and feel free to explain any feelings of reservation or fears that you may be having. We have many different methods to help you cope with these very natural feelings and are here to support you in improving your oral health.
Your medical history and your habits and lifestyle choices are also important to us, so we know if there are any underlying health conditions that we need to be aware of. Your diet and whether you smoke or not are also points of interest, as these can have an impact on the health of your teeth and gums.
By committing to keeping in touch with us twice a year, we can work together in maintaining a good level of oral health and avoid any situations that create the need for restorative treatments. Prevention is better than the cures we offer, so with frequent dental hygiene visits and a sound oral health routine at home, we are confident you can maintain a strong and healthy smile.
