Look after your teeth better with our dentist Sheffield

It is important that you visit our dentist Sheffield at Dee Kay Dental on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth are clean and healthy and free of cavities or tooth decay. We recommend that you should visit our dentist Sheffield at least once every six months and more often if you are troubled by your teeth. Regular visits help our dentist Sheffield identify any problems early and they can be treated quickly and successfully. This means less time spent in the dentist chair and less intensive dental treatment.

Looking after your teeth

At home you need to maintain excellent dental hygiene which includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, (you would be surprised how many people don’t), flossing at least once a day and maintaining a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle. Many people put their teeth at more risk by making wrong food choices and wrong lifestyle choices. Sugary, sticky snacks are not good for you. They are not good for your teeth and they are not good for your overall health and wellbeing. Cutting down on sugary, sticky treats and snacks will help promote better dental health and it will prevent medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Lifestyle choices, such as smoking and excessive drinking are also bad for your teeth. Smokers are significantly more likely to develop dental health complications and need to visit the dentist a lot more often than others. Drinking excessively can damage your teeth. You are more likely to develop cavities and tooth decay and should also visit the dentist more often for regular check-ups. By speaking to our dentist about your problems you will be guided towards receiving help for smoking cessation and alcohol abuse. By maintaining a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle you will be able to enjoy better dental health and overall wellbeing.

Visiting our dentist

Our dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth each time you visit the dental practice. This includes looking for any signs of cavities, tooth decay or gum disease. It includes looking for any cuts and sores in your mouth and any signs of major complications such as mouth cancer. With regular check-ups, you can make sure that your mouth is healthy and free of decay and disease. We also help maintain a beautiful, white smile. You will be encouraged to visit the hygienist regularly who will help keep your teeth clean. Despite looking after your teeth properly at home, some things need to be done by the dentist. For example, if you have tartar build-up on your teeth, then this cannot be removed by brushing and you will need professional cleaning. You can also speak to us about whitening your teeth, straightening teeth and different types of cosmetic dental treatment to improve the overall appearance of your teeth and smile. We offer a full range of general dental treatments, preventive dental treatments and cosmetic dental treatments to meet all your unique dental requirements.
