As well as maintaining a good, daily oral hygiene regime we also recommend that patients make regular visits to the Hygienist. This is the best way to maintain beautiful smiles and keep the teeth and mouth healthy. As well as giving your teeth a thorough clean, the Hygienist will also be able to spot any potential issues and recommend an appointment with the dentist if necessary.
We always advise our patients that prevention is better than cure. Your Hygienist will advise you on how to best look after your oral health and keep problems at bay. If plaque and tartar aren’t effectively removed then they can eventually lead to tooth decay, gum disease and other conditions. During the appointment you will receive a professional scale and polish to leave your teeth shiny and clean, making a Hygiene appointment a quick and easy way way to freshen up your smile.
Good oral hygiene begins at home. Brushing your teeth twice a day is essential and we also strongly recommend cleaning between the teeth using dental floss and interdental brushes. If you have any dental appliances in the mouth, such as dentures or braces, then these will need particular care to clean and maintain. Your Hygienist will be able to advise and help you with the specific requirements for these.
