The key to keeping your natural teeth for your lifetime is having excellent oral hygiene. At Battle Road Dental Practice, we want our patients to feel well informed and confident at maintaining their oral hygiene.
We offer appointments with our experienced dental hygienist to all of our patients. The main role of a dental hygienist is to assess your oral hygiene and carry out a professional clean. This cleaning treatment is very thorough and is called a ‘scale and polish’.
However, we believe the most important role of a hygienist is to advise you of the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque and your gums healthy. They will give you oral hygiene instructions tailored to suit you to ensure you have the knowledge to be able to keep your teeth nice and clean at home.
A hygienist appointment will include the removal of tartar deposits on the teeth and teaching you how to prevent it reforming. This will go a long way in slowing down the progress of any potential gum disease, preventing tooth mobility, tooth loss and bad breath.
Our hygienist will create a bespoke maintenance plan to suit you and your needs. A clean and fresh smile is generally a healthy smile.
We are now able to offer direct access appointments to see a dental hygienist without the need for a dental examination.
