Dental Hygiene

Maintaining a happy, healthy mouth

“I’ve Never Felt My Teeth So Clean. It’s Amazing, It’s Like Silk”

 

Healthy gums are fundamental to all of the procedures we provide. It forms a solid foundation onto which we can build healthy, happy, long lasting smiles.

Prevention is better than cure and we recommend that all our adult patients attend the hygienist regularly to have the health of their gums checked and any remedial treatment carried out – scale and polish.

The frequency of these appointments will be advised by your dentist but it is usually every 3 or 6 months.

Introducing Your Dental Therapist, Carla at The Tooth Doctor

 

What Happens when you see your hygienist? 

First of all we would take a plaque and bleeding score which measures how much plaque and bleeding you have in your mouth.  From this we can then tell where there are areas that need to be improved on.

After this, we would use a pocket chart to measure any more gum disease (if applicable). We then take future pocket charts to each appointment which would hopefully ensure that the gum disease is stabilising.

Following this we then remove all the hard and soft plaque from your teeth.  The hardened up plaque is called calculous and is impossible for you to remove at home, so we would remove this with our hand scalers and ultra-sonic scalers. 

By removing this any inflammation that you may have in your gums would hopefully settle down and the gum disease would stabilise. 

After this we would polish with this an air polisher.  It’s really good because it gets right in between the teeth unlike a normal polish.

After this we would go over some oral hygiene information.  This might just be tooth brushing, electric tooth brushing which we can do in the practice, floss, inter dental brushes, this is all tailored to your individual needs.

Our aim is to get your gums looking healthy and get you feeling better about yourself.

Results We Get With Air Flow Polishing

We often do air flow as part of our extensive hygiene programme. Air flow is a mix of air, water & powder.

The benefit of air flow is it gets in every nook and cranny, and removes surface stains like tea, coffee and red wine. 

With amazing results like this why not book yourself in for a hygiene visit to give your teeth a sparkle.

The Easiest Way To Use Dental Floss With Janice

A lot of patients find it really hard to dental floss, and they feel they’re not doing it properly. Dental flossing is really important. Brushing our teeth removes a lot of the plaque, but cleaning in between our teeth once a day, it doesn’t matter when you do it, breakfast, noon or night-time, cleans a lot of bacteria from in between our teeth, reduces cavities by 40%, and reduces the risk of gum disease.

Some patients find it difficult to use dental floss, so a lot of patients use floss picks, which are really good. These are really easy to use. One of these does your full mouth, so you don’t need to fiddle about with the floss. These are really good for getting to the back of the mouth without having to get your fingers in. 

It doesn’t matter when you use it, just once a day using dental floss every day will really, really help your dental health.

Absolutely thrilled with my teeth, after years of bad experiences and having anxiety with other dental practices,I have now found a great dentist in Jane, I have had two major procedures in the last two weeks that were made pain free and after having had a super veneer fitted it has changed my smile. Jane is a talented and modern dentist, I would never go anywhere else and recommend to everyone I know. Easy to get to and plenty of car parking space. All staff are lovely and welcoming. Anybody with anxieties when it comes to dental work needs to get to the tooth doctor as they are they are so understanding and sympathetic to their patients.read more

Switched my dentist to Kevin at the Tooth Doctor earlier this year and have never looked back. The practice is filled with friendly and helpful staff who do their best to accommodate you. Everything is explained thoroughly and with a smile - they take their time to listen to you and address any concerns you may have. Previous places have made me feel like I'm wasting their time by asking questions or being worried about the cosmetic side to dental treatment, but now I feel like I can get great advice on whatever aspect of my teeth that are bothering me - from where I am going wrong on cleaning to what whitening treatments work best. My nephew, who after a previous experience was incredibly nervous about attending the dentist, is now more than willing to attend appointments to help him fix his smile and get the best out of his teeth. Would recommend this place to anybody looking for a practice that puts you at ease and gives you the best possible treatment.read more

I have been a patient of the tooth doctor for years and would not go anywhere else. I have always suffered anxiety going to the dentist. Kevin and Callum are the best dentists I have ever attended. They have always put me at ease and with their expert knowledge I have never felt any pain whatsoever with any dental treatment and some has involved quite major work. Claire on reception is always there to greet you with a lovely welcoming smile and again I am instantly reassured I am in the best hands. Finally, I cannot recommend Janice the hygienist enough. Janice has looked after my teeth and gums brilliantly and my mouth is super clean after each visit. Again Janice is excellent with nervous patients. 100% would recommend the tooth doctor to all �read more

Calum carried out a dental implant procedure on me a few years ago - best thing I've ever done. He's definitely an expert in this field and the procedure and after care was excellent.

First time for intravenous sedation and can't rate it highly enough. I'm a very nervous patient and required 2 back teeth to be extracted. Not only was procedure pain free, I had no after surgery trauma either as I was totally relaxed so no neck or jaw stiffness. A couple of painkillers and a good sleep later, I feel fine. Thank you Jane and Suzanne.read more
