ORAL HYGIENE TREATMENTS AT ANGLE HOUSE SPECIALIST DENTISTRY
For many of us, as soon as we have learned to hold a toothbrush we are instructed with the importance of good oral hygiene. However, for many of us, those early life lessons, although never forgotten, can get lost in the busyness of life. If your oral hygiene routine is slipping, it might be time to book in for an oral hygiene session at Angle House Specialist Dentistry.
What is an oral hygiene session?
Now available at our Angle House Ealing, Enfield, Whetstone and Canons Park clinics, we have a new direct access hygienist service. You can book a 45-minute oral hygiene session for £60 directly with our hygienist.
At this session, you will meet with our dental hygienist who will discuss your general oral health and give you advice. She will also:
- Check your gums and teeth for any signs of problems, such as receding gums or tooth wear.
- Show you how to care for your teeth and gums by using a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to maintain good oral health.
- Show you how to clean in between your teeth with floss, tape or interdental brushes and demonstrate an effective toothbrushing technique.
- Give you advice on the types of toothbrush, toothpaste and other cleaning aids, such as mouthwashes, that are best suited to your needs.
- Remove any calculus or stains by scaling your teeth, and then polishing them.
Benefits of an oral hygiene session
Just like you go to your doctors for a check-up, or you take your care to the mechanic for a Warrant of Fitness, it’s important your teeth are regularly assessed by a dental professional. That is why it is recommended you have a twice-yearly check-up with your family dentist.
For a comprehensive oral hygiene routine, you should include a session with an oral hygienist as well as your regular check-ups. The benefits of an oral hygiene session are:
- A hygienist can help to remove the stains appearing on your teeth, which regular brushing and flossing won’t be able to.
- A hygienist can floss in those hard to reach places.
- A hygienist can look for signs of gum disease or plaque build up and help to keep this at bay.
Your teeth will also receive a comprehensive clean, much like a valet for teeth!
