Oral hygiene is more than just preventing cavities. At Raceview Dental, Ipswich we take a comprehensive approach in oral hygiene. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a part of maintaining your overall well being.
Healthy teeth and gums = A Healthy body!
At Raceview dental we believe prevention is better than cure. Proper care and maintenance will help you achieve healthy teeth and gums.
The best way to look after your teeth and to avoid painful and expensive treatment is to have regular six monthly check ups. This helps to avoid major dental treatments by allowing us to find and prevent major problems before they progress. A good oral hygiene regime and diet are vital factors that help to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We support patients to achieve good oral health with our preventative and maintenance programme which means you get notified once your 6 monthly recall appointment is due.
Our top tips to help you achieve a healthy smile.
