Hygiene visits are vital to the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease.
We can’t over emphasise the importance of visiting the hygienist regularly. Your hygienist can help prevent gum disease and tooth decay, the two major causes of tooth loss.
At Orchard Dental Practice we can offer you the services of a Dental Hygienist, they work closely with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs. Our hygienist has been specially trained to carry out scaling and polishing and can spend longer with you than the dentist. Regular visits and advice will help build your confidence in maintaining your oral health which will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth healthy and give you fresh breath.
In addition the hygienist will assess how well you are caring for your teeth and if need be will help you improve your brushing and flossing techniques or show you how to tackle any difficult areas.
Our hygienists will also advise on such problems as bleeding gums or bad breath and will introduce you to a programme that will cure it.
They can also offer you advice on the best oral hygiene products for your needs.
