Clean Teeth and Peace of Mind
One of the first things you learn as a dentist is that no
two mouths are alike; which is why we need a customised oral
hygiene routine. General health, nutrition and lifestyle
all need to be considered when deciding on your level of
cleaning and maintenance. An effective cleaning routine can
dramatically reduce your need for "in surgery" cleans.
For instance, if your "at home" cleaning
routine isn't very effective a surgery clean will only keep
mouth stable for around 3 months; which means if you only
visit every six months you will have tartar and plaque on
the teeth and gums for 6 months of the year. This can result
in damage to your teeth and tissues.
It is much better to
have an effective at home routine so you only need a surgery
clean every two years. (Although we still recommend six
monthly check ups). So an effective cleaning routine will
reduce the risk of decay and gum disease. Our patients
like the predictability that comes from this approach. They
that, barring accidents or trauma, they have more control
of their dental treatment.
Our maintenance program is designed to fit with yours.
We aim to constantly keep you informed with feedback
level of your oral hygiene through regular visits. We
have the full range of equipment required to maintain
and health of your gums and teeth and also have specialised
equipment to gently remove stains without scratching
or wearing teeth.
