From preventative dentistry and oral hygiene to fillings and root canal work
Larne Dental Centre is very much a family-oriented practice. We want to help local people to benefit from high quality general dentistry at affordable rates. As such, we strongly believe that there’s no such thing as ‘routine’ or ‘simple’ dental work. Regular check-ups and straightforward fillings are every bit as important as complex cosmetic or restorative dentistry – and you can be sure that you’ll receive the same high standard of service no matter what kind of dental work we’re carrying out for you.
Helping you keep your teeth for life
We’re great believers in the importance of preventative dentistry. Preventative dentistry is all about keeping on top of your oral hygiene and seeing a dentist regularly who can spot emerging issues before they have the chance to cause permanent damage. Good oral hygiene and regular check-ups are the two simplest, cheapest and most effective ways to guard against the pain and cost of failing teeth.
In a friendly and non-judgemental manner, we make a point of explaining your own role in keeping your teeth strong, healthy and attractive. It’s not all down to what goes on in the dentist’s chair! We advise everyone to brush for at least two minutes twice daily, floss at night, and get a dental check-up at least once a year, and we recommend having a hygiene appointment (in which your teeth are professionally cleaned by a hygienist) at least every six months.
Healthy mouth, healthy body
Most people wouldn’t really expect there to be a strong link between oral health and what goes in in the rest of the body, but this is something which we take very seriously at Larne Dental Centre.
Your oral health can offer clues about your overall well-being, and problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body. We offer blood pressure screening and diabetes risk assessment as both of these conditions – among others which we always look out for – may be linked with poor oral health.
