Covid-19 has highlighted the importance of our health, say Drayton dentists

July 10, 2020

Drayton Dental Care near Norwich recommends regular visits with your dentist and hygienist to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums and avoid costly, more complex treatments in the long term.

During the coronavirus lockdown by far and away the people who contacted us with dental emergencies, such as severe toothache or facial swelling, were non patients or people who did not attend as regularly as recommended.

What this pandemic has taught us all is that looking after our health is vitally important. And our gums provide a good indication of our general health – after all, healthy gums reflect a healthy body.

Research has found that serious gum disease is linked to medical conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, bacterial lung infections, dementia, strokes, diabetes and problems with pregnancy, including premature births and low birthweight babies. So, it is really important you take good care of them.

A staggering 80 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled.

Spread the cost of your essential dental and hygiene care

Our dental health plans make it easier for you to make dental wellbeing part of your new healthy living approach. The cost of your dental and hygiene visits – as well as a host of other exclusive benefits  – are spread throughout the year into manageable monthly payments.

If you would like to find out more about our monthly membership plans, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
