Dental hygiene is the practice of maintaining your dental health by removing plaque and bacteria at home and ensuring you visit your dentist regularly for check-ups.
Brushing and flossing your teeth twice per day can help you maintain good oral hygiene at home. Brushing helps prevent the build-up of unwanted soft deposits on the surface of teeth, which can lead to tartar, decay or infection.
We recommend all patients conduct interdental cleaning, using floss or interdental brushes. This helps to limit the build-up of hard deposits, such as tartar.
Our dentist will conduct a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar build up from beneath gum margins. Dental cleanings assist in preventing periodontal disease which can lead to bone and tooth loss.
Our team can also will show you proper brushing and flossing techniques especially if you have braces, bridges or other restorations. They will also discuss your diet and advise you on which foods to eat or avoid depending on your specific situation.
Basic dental hygiene treatments can start from as little as £39 per session but are also included in some of our dental plans.
