To keep your mouth healthy, it is recommended that you visit the dentist at regular intervals for routine hygiene treatment. The aim of this treatment is to remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in your mouth over time. Certain areas of the mouth are more difficult to clean effectively, making it easier for bacteria to become established.
At this appointment tour teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing. The dentist can also show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque, this will include advice on your toothbrushing technique, your toothbrush choice, as well as tips on how to clean the spaces between your teeth with floss or interdental brushes.
You will also be advised on lifestyle choices such as diet and smoking, which will benefit your oral health. If you have braces, a denture or a bridge you will also receive specific oral hygiene treatment and advice.
To keep your mouth in tip-top shape we recommend that you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups. Contact us today on 0208 6881311 to book your next appointment.
