A good dental hygiene routine is one that involves brushing twice daily and cleaning between teeth with floss or interdental brushes to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
It’s also important to avoid sugary food where possible and try not to snack between meals. Establishing a daily dental hygiene routine will help prevent problems such as gingivitis and bleeding gums, decay and periodontal disease.
Our dentists are able to offer all the latest methods and treatments and are dedicated to supporting you in maintaining optimum oral health. We are skilled at helping each patient develop a plan that is suited to them and that will produce the necessary results for healthy teeth and gums.
Treatments available besides tailored advice include traditional scale and polish and the latest Airflow Tooth polishing system, also known as hygiene clean or stain removal clean, which uses a mixture of air, water and a fine powder to remove plaque from difficult to reach places and stains caused by everyday food and drink and tobacco stains.
A scale and polish treatment is a more thorough clean than traditional brushing and will remove any plaque or tartar that has built up and smooth the surface of the tooth using either an ultrasonic scaler, a hand held scaler or both.Back to General Dentistry
