Historically dental check ups have been all about detection, however things have changed. Prevention is king. Most preventative care is carried out at home. This highlights the importance of educating yourself in the art of dental hygiene. The most effective way of doing this is by attending regular Hygiene Appointments.
What is a Hygiene Appointment?
As well as receiving a full scale and polish, a patient will leave a Hygiene Appointment with a better knowledge of how they can look after their teeth and gums at home. Our Dental Therapist, Lucy Thompson takes all our hygiene appointments. She spends a considerable amount of time giving tailored advice and recommending products that are appropriate for your oral health regime at home. You will leave your appointment not only feeling refreshed but also feeling like you can tackle preventative dental care in the comfort of your own home.
