Did you know that long term plaque build-up (and subsequent gum disease which happens when the bacteria in plaque attacks our gums below the surface to make them red and inflammed) is one of the most common causes of tooth decay and eventual tooth loss in the UK?
That’s why, at Bletchley Dental Practice, we recommend dental hygiene appointments at least every six months with one of our friendly and professional hygienists. Playing an important part in reducing your oral health problems, your dental hygiene appointment will include the following:
A gentle yet thorough clean of your teeth to remove the build-up of harmful plaque
Removal of odour causing bacteria for a fresh breath
Air polish to remove any light stains for a sparkling clean smile
Soft tissue checks to ensure healthy gums
Advice on how to effectively brush and floss your teeth
All of our hygienists at Bletchley Dental Practice are fully qualified dental hygienists who are registered with the General Dental Council. As dental professionals, they are both also committed to Continuous Professional Development and to keeping up to date with the latest advancements in oral health care techniques.
