Oral hygiene treatments are part of preventive dentistry, which is the modern way of helping you keep a healthy mouth and may help reduce the risk of having extensive dental treatment.
We will first check your teeth and gums, and talk to you about any treatment you need. Then we will thoroughly remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. This is often called a "scale and polish".
We will also show you the best ways to brush, and how to clean in between your teeth using interdental brushes or floss, to remove the bacterial ‘plaque' which forms constantly on your teeth.
You will be told which oral care products are the best ones for you to use. We will also make sure that all your fillings are in good condition and that there are no rough edges to make cleaning difficult.
