The most common reasons for tooth loss in adults are decay and gum disease. In most cases, these are both completely preventable with good, regular oral care.
On-going visits to the hygienist are a very important way to help you maintain this and keep problems at bay.
During the appointment your teeth will be given a thorough scale and polish. This combination will remove the build-up of any plaque or tartar and leave your teeth shiny and clean.
The hygienist will be able to spot any potential problems and refer you to the dentist if necessary. We will also give you advice on daily oral care at home as well as helpful tips on nutrition and lifestyle.
We advise attending regular appointments to help maintain good oral health. Exactly how often this is depends on the individual. If you have had recent dental work done, such as implants, then more frequent appointments are advised.
Latest evidence links poor oral health to both diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which further highlights the importance of on-going dental hygiene appointments.
A good daily hygiene routine is vital for keeping the teeth and gums healthy. Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day - and floss or interdental brushes used to clean between them at least once a day.
If carried out properly, this will help prevent the formation of plaque and tartar along the gum line that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Properly brushing your teeth should take no less than two minutes.
The toothbrush should be angled at 45 degrees towards the gums and moved gently back and forth with short strokes. Equal attention and time should be given to the backs of the teeth as to the fronts.
We aim to make our treatments as affordable as possible and ensure our prices are competitive compared to other local dentists. Our dental hygiene appointments start from only £64.50.
