New Year New You - Our top tips

Did you know dental health has a huge impact on your overall physical health? 

It can improve not only things like your self esteem and confidence but also can give key clues into your physical health and wellbeing.

Practicing good oral hygiene is key to a healthy mouth. Brushing your teeth thoroughly twice a day and regular dental check ups are essential. The American Dental Association makes these basic home care recommendations:

  • Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Clean between teeth daily
  • Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks
  • See a dentist regularly for prevention and treatment of oral disease

Other recommendations to take on board from the American Dental Association include:

  • Don't carry out any do-it-yourself dental treatment 
  • Recommend that patients drink fluoridated water 
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoid oral piercings

Regular check ups can work as a preventative measure against any issues that may arise as well as diagnosing any issues that may already be present. Check out the four main reasons to have a check up with South Hill Dental here, https://www.drhappysmiles.com/blog/four-reasons-to-get-a-dental-check-up-at-south-hill-dental

Friendliest and cleanest dentist office

This is by far the friendliest and cleanest dentist office I have ever been to in my fifty plus years. The staff is so welcoming and you can tell there is a great deal of respect amongst them as they work as a team. PLUS they are gentle and efficient at their duties. The dentist is awesome as well. Let's face it, going to the dentist isn't on anyone's favourite thing to do, but with the treatment and atmosphere at South Hill Dental, it was even kinda a pleasure! Five stars for them!

South Hill Dental is great!

South Hill Dental is great! I had a tooth that felt like it was ready to explode and they were able to get me in to perform what ended up being two root canals. Got on the same day I called. Jill was great and so was everyone else. Can't remember everyone's name because when you're getting work done, it's hard to remember things like names. The dentist really knew what he was doing and I'm feeling better already. I highly recommend them!
