Oral Hygiene

We strongly recommend booking a hygiene appointment at the same time as your regular examination.

Why Have Regular Hygiene Appointments?

Regular hygiene appointments are a proven and non-invasive way to help prevent gum disease by removing hardened plaque or calculus from your teeth. Without regular removal, calculus can infect and inflame your gums, causing gum disease. This is a very serious condition that can cause tooth loss and which may affect your general health.

 

Can I Receive Advice on Brushing and Flossing?

Our hygienist can offer personalised advice on how to brush and floss more effectively. After cleaning your teeth, they will be able to identify areas you may be missing during regular brushing and can show you some simple techniques to brush more thoroughly. We know some people may struggle to floss. We can discuss using alternative tools such as interdental brushes, which can be easier to manipulate.
