Maintaining the health of your mouth is a priority of our dental hygienists at Dental Healthcare Practice. The practice was founded on the principle of dental problems being prevented before they require treatment.
We are able to do this by using a team approach of the dentists and the dental hygienist, in developing a prevention plan for you.
This prevention plan is designed to reduce dental decay and gum disease, which are the most common problems affecting our patients. Some of the ways we are able to do this are:
Oral hygiene advice
We will give you guidance on dental care including cleaning the mouth, in such a way as to be simple and realistic, bearing in mind the busy lives we lead these days.
Fluoride applications and sealants
We are able to paint onto the teeth materials that will strengthen the teeth and make them resistant to decay.
Scaling and polishing
This is a procedure we carry out frequently, and involves the removal of hardened calculus and staining which builds up on the teeth and gums and causes various gum problems, including bad breath and discolouration of teeth.
The food and drink that we consume can be the cause of dental care problems in the mouth. an example of this is hidden sugars causing decay or acid “healthy” drinks causing excessive tooth wear. We will give sensible, realistic advice to enable you to avoid and reduce these problems.
