What is gum disease?

Poor oral hygiene and failure to visit a dental hygienists regularly can result in developing gum disease. This is when bacteria in the mouth settles in pockets around the tooth just above the gum line.

Once it hardens into plaque it becomes difficult to remove. If the plaque is not removed the disease (Gingivitis) will steadily worsen developing into a more serious form of gum disease called Periodontitis.

This can result in the loss of a tooth. Read more about gum disease (Gingivitis) here.

How do I prevent bad breath?

This is known as halitosis and our dental hygienists can advise patients how to prevent bad breath and explain how and why bad breath occurs.

By flossing your teeth at least once a day and tooth brushing at least twice a day will help to remove the build up of food deposits in between your teeth and achieve fresh breath.

Tooth scaling and polishing your teeth?

As part of a good routine, we recommend our patients visit our dental hygienists at least every six months for a scale and polish. We will also check your general oral hygiene to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Our dental hygienists are trained and qualified to spot any problems and to provide the best treatment and advice.

Dental Hygienist Reviewed by Fiona McLoughlin on "My friend recommended and she was not wrong. Lisa was lovely, welcoming and gave excellent advise. Lisa explained where i was with my status, what I could do better and demonstrated better brushing techniques. I noticed that the Principal Dentist also followed same covid rules as patients.

They seem to have this pandemic patient safety process down to a fine art. I did notice that they appear to be keeping up with current/latest dentistry methods and offer a good range of services for all.

Would highly recommend."

Dental Hygienist Reviewed by laura morris on "I can’t recommend the hygienist Lisa more - she is absolutely brilliant at what she does and is such a lovely calming person who genuinely cares about her patients and remembers them.

Me and my husband have been going to Lisa for the last few years and we both went for a clean before our wedding and she went above and beyond to give us sparkly clean smiles for our day - she is fab and the practice is always very clean and safe."
