Maintaining A Happy, Healthy Mouth
Healthy gums are fundamental to all of the procedures we provide. They form a solid foundation upon which we can build healthy, happy, long lasting smiles.
Prevention is better than cure and we recommend all our adult patients to see a hygienist regularly, to have the health of their gums checked and any remedial treatment carried out – a scale and polish.
The frequency of these appointments will be advised by your dentist, but is usually every 3 or 6 months.
We really encourage parents to bring their children in to visit a hygienist, it’s informative and fun! Ask any member of staff for details.
An appointment with one of our specially trained dental hygienists will help you get that winning smile. Book an appointment and you could benefit from the following:
- Whiter teeth
- No more bleeding gums
- Reduced gum recession
- Stop sensitivity
- Stop bad breath
- Dietary advice
- Removal of plaque between teeth
- Tailored advice on oral products and treatments
- Reduced dental bills – prevention, rather than cure.
It is in the best interest of the patient to visit a hygienist to maintain their oral health for as long as possible.
“The dental hygienist is not just an add-on to the dentist’s work, she complements it”
I have been a patient of this practice for nearly 30 years and have at all times been conscious of the high standard of treatment I have received.
Early on, during my time as a patient, my treatment involved fillings, crowns and two bridges. The result of this work was a stable mouth, and in keeping it stable I recognised the role played over the years by the various oral hygiene techniques learned from the hygienist.
Always remember: The dentist can repair your damaged teeth but what you, the patient, does EVERY DAY BETWEEN VISITS to the dentist is vital to the promotion of oral health.
The dental hygienist is not just an add-on to the dentist’s work, she complements it.
Final advice: If you wish to benefit in practical ways from your dentist’s work, visit the hygienist on a regular basis.
