HYGIENE & PREVENTATIVE SERVICES
For healthy smiles for adults and children, see how our hygienist can help
We all agree that prevention is better than cure and the same rings true for our oral health. Current studies also indicate a stronger correlation between our dental health and its effect on other systemic diseases. Our hygienist plays a vital role in helping you to keep your teeth and gums in good condition.
During your visit, our hygienist will clean your teeth professionally, removing any plaque (a layer of sticky bacteria which causes gum disease). Your teeth will then be polished which helps to prevent further plaque from sticking to them, as well as helping them to look and feel fresh and clean. The hygienist will monitor the health of your gums and the effectiveness of your home oral health care routine, in addition to advising you on the best way to care for your teeth. If you are worried that you are suffering from gum disease, you may need to visit our in-house gum specialist for a consultation.
To make it easy for you to find the products that we recommend for caring for your teeth and gums, we sell them at the practice – just ask at reception or call us on 01491 680412.
