Your Adult teeth which start coming through around age 6, are weak for the first few years after they appear. This is the second most vulnerable time - especially since sugary and “hidden sugar” laden snacks and drinks are popular and highly damaging if consumed between meals or before bed. We ask you to fill in a “Diet Analysis Sheet” to mutually work out the best tasting and healthier substitutes.

The "tides of time" are normally wearing away at your gums/bony support for your teeth by now. Your general well being maybe under threat by the bacteria in your dental plaque!
These Plaque bacteria have been found to enter your bloodstream and put strain on your bodies immune system. So learning excellent Oral Hygiene is much more than just a confidence/pride booster...
If you have yet to master taking care of our teeth through dietary changes and excellent oral hygiene- you are in trouble! Old filled areas of tooth decay may need replacing and strengthening with Dental Crowns, Root Fillings well may be required as the nerve under previous deep fillings may die off. We may see we are becoming long in the tooth as over time the plaque bacteria that cause ‘gum disease’ destroy the bone supporting our teeth and the gums recede revealing the roots of the teeth. This is really the key time to remedy any weaknesses in applying excellent dental care routines if you want to avoid the limitations of dentures in later life. Plus just to re-iterate if you take care of your mouth, you are statistically less likely to suffer from heart disease.
