Routine check-ups with your dentist means decay can be spotted before it causes further teeth damage or pain. We also work closely with our hygienist, Colin Dunlop, to spot signs of gum disease or other serious conditions such as oral cancer.
Hygiene treatments are an essential part of your preventive care. Colin will deep clean your teeth to help reduce a build-up of plaque with a thorough scale and polish. This helps prevent or slow the progress of gum disease and will leave your teeth feeling smooth and looking shiny. He will also show you how to use dental tools, such as brushes and floss, so you can maintain an effective dental care routine at home. His advice will include dietary tips so you know which foods to avoid and which you can freely indulge in for healthy teeth.
Don’t forget to bring your little ones to see our hygienist too. We can teach them lots of teeth care tips and apply fissure sealants to protect new teeth when they first start to appear.
Remember to let us know if you have any concerns – the sooner you tell us about any signs or symptoms, the more quickly we can intervene and give you the top quality treatment you need.
