Oral hygiene careFor healthy gums and clean teeth
Looking after your teeth
How Hygienists can help
Here at Hacton Dental Care, our highly trained oral hygienists work closely with patients to offer oral hygiene treatments as well as advice on looking after your teeth.
Often patients think that a brushing their teeth regularly is enough to prevent gum disease and decay, but this is often not the case. It is also important to make sure you are using the correct toothpaste and brush and that your brushing technique is at its most effective.
We also recommend using floss so that the tiny bits of plaque under the gum line and between the teeth can be effectively removed.
Professional teeth cleaning
We believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to the health of our teeth, which is why we would suggest to all our patients that they make an appointment with one of our dental hygienists.
Our hygienist are there to give teeth a professional cleaning which will remove any plaque or tartar build-up that patients alone cannot tackle.
They also give lots of handy tips and advice about looking after teeth, including how to brush and floss correctly, the best toothpastes and flossing systems for each individual patient and are great at getting children interested in their oral health from an early age.
