Frankton Dental

What can I do to prevent gum disease?

Regular dental cleanings and exams will help keep your gums in great shape, but what you do at home matters as well. Brush twice daily and floss every evening. Our hygienist/dentists will be happy to show you good brushing and flossing technique if you need a reminder.

Other steps you can take to prevent gum disease include:

  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco.
  • Eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • If you have a health condition that can affect your dental health such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, please let us know so that we can take extra steps to help keep your gums healthy.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Thank you for your ongoing support, we hope you are safe and well in this uncertain time.
This week we have our reception staff working from home with remote computer and phone access at Level 3. We will be able to respond to your voice message within 24 hours and we are starting to take bookings for an anticipated level 2 from Monday the 18th of May.
Existing bookings will be honoured and missed appointments will be prioritised according to urgency. This week for existing patients, we will be offering complimentary booked telephone consultations with your dentist for any concerns that cannot be answered by our friendly reception team. We understand that there may be a bottleneck for patient appointments once we descend into level 2 and want to assure you that we will be working hard for everyone to be triaged and seen in a timely manner.
Thank you again for the continued support, we all can’t wait to be back in the clinic properly to care for you again.
Please call 034422711 or email [email protected] to make a booking at level 2.
