The proper steps each day can prevent problems, and our hygienists are on hand to ensure you keep teeth and gums in tip-top condition.
Regular visits to a hygienist combined with dental check-ups and looking after your teeth and gums at home will greatly improve the appearance of your teeth and your oral health.
Regular brushing cannot reach the areas where plaque or Tartar build-up can occur. Hygienists give tailored advice on maintaining good dental health, showing you how to use techniques at home as well as providing thorough cleaning. This is a superior clean to what a dentist can achieve during a check-up.
The frequency of your visits is determined by the plaque scores taken at each visit and the progression of oral health routines at home. Your dentist or hygienist will kindly discuss the recommended frequency of visits required to maintain optimal oral health.
Your dentist or hygienist will offer oral health advice at each routine appointment. It is recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day and clean in between your teeth. This will help you to maintain healthy teeth and gums and reduce the risk of tooth loss.
There are a wide range of interdental cleaning aids that make this task more manageable, and your dental care professionals will take the time to go through a variety of options to find the one that suits you.Back to General Dentistry
