At GMHBA we are dedicated to looking after the health and wellbeing of all in the community. When it comes to dental care, that starts with a healthy smile.
Check-ups are important
Regular check-ups, good oral hygiene and having a good diet will decrease the risk of tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease. To maintain good basic oral health, we recommend you have a professional clean every 6 months and an examination every 12 months. More frequent check-ups may be required if a specific oral problem is present.
Baby teeth too
Teaching kids about dental care from a young age helps to build healthy habits and prevent tooth decay in children. Help your children brush their teeth from when the first few teeth appear and visit a dentist within the first two years of their lives to help develop healthy habits and prevent tooth decay.
