We all try to look after our teeth, by brushing, flossing and using mouthwash. However sometimes this just isn’t enough. To make sure that you keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is important to have regular check ups with your dental hygienist. Your Dental Hygienist will clean your teeth professionally, so that you can reduce the chances of cavities or tooth decay.
A Dental Hygienist is someone who is part of the dental professional team. They would have been trained to clean your teeth professionally to prevent gum disease and any other potential problem that could have occurred by lack of knowledge, when it comes to cleaning your teeth, which can also save you money in the long run. If you keep your teeth clean and healthy, your chances of needing further treatment will be low and therefore so will the costs. Your Dental Hygienist will also show you ways to look after your teeth and gums at home till your next check up.
Keeping you teeth and gums healthy are extremely important. Here are a few ways to make sure you are looking after you mouth the best way you can:
Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day. Try to use an electric toothbrush as it will stop if you press too hard on your teeth. Try to make your brushing last at least two minutes.
Flossing regularly will help remove trapped food between the teeth which brushing alone can miss. If you do not floss regularly the food trapped between your teeth will start to rot along with your tooth.
A trip to our Hygienist will cost £55. However we do offer payment plans in the form of a gold or silver membership, you will also get other benefits with these plans. The silver plan cost £13.50 a month and the gold plan cost £18.50 a month, which includes free teeth whitening, normally costing £350. Call us today to book your appointment.
