Alzheimer's could be passed on through medical procedures

Latest research suggests that there is a theoretical risk that alzheimer's disease may be transmitted during invasive dental work such as root canal treatment, in a similar way to CJD. At Bovey Dental Practice we take this risk seriously and therefore only use single use disposable instruments where such a risk exists.

Why 3 monthly dental Hygienists appointments

..research shows  that it takes about 3 months for the bad bacteria that cause gum disease to return and re establish in gum pockets around the teeth. The hygienist can remove these by scaling and flushing out these pockets. This together with good daily cleaning with your toothbrush , floss and interdental brushes will help prevent the disease.
