Dental Health Examination
The main role of a dental health examination is to confirm the health of your mouth, teeth and gums and to offer support and encouragement on achieving and maintaining excellent dental health.
As with all other health conditions, identification of early dental health issues results in more straight forward minimally invasive solutions that will cost you less financially.
Modern research is now confirming links between poor gum health and the risks of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. For more information on this please visit EFP manifesto
