After the pandemic prevented and severely limited patients from attending regular check-ups for so long, we are finally back to some sort of normality in the practice. It is estimated that some 38 million appointments have been missed since the beginning of the pandemic and dentists up and down the country are working tirelessly to clear this backlog. Luckily, here at Aesthetique Dental Care, we are welcoming new patients with open arms into our Leeds practice. Whether you have previously received NHS treatment and are not able to book an appointment any time soon or are simply unhappy with your current dentist, we are proud to welcome new private patients to our spacious and modern surgery.
Our approach to dentistry is to prevent issues from occurring rather than treating them as they appear. This reduces time, cost and likelihood of invasive procedures. We recommend that you visit us every 6 months for a check-up and hygiene appointment to help us keep on top of this. Your check-up appointment will include inspecting your mouth for signs of decay, gum disease and oral cancer, as well as discussing any issues or concerns you might have. If necessary, we will also take X-rays to check teeth beneath the surface and bone levels.
A vital component of your dental check-up is examining for signs of gum disease. Gum disease is a result of plaque building on the surface of the teeth and gums and forming into tartar. As tartar forms, bacteria cause irritation and inflamed gums. According to Bupa, around 90% of adults in the UK have some form of gum disease, and if left untreated, this can lead to tooth decay. Plaque and tartar are impossible to eradicate with brushing and flossing alone, which is why check-ups and hygiene appointments are paramount.
