Dental Hygienist appointments available in Bristol

A preventative approach to oral health

PeriodonticsAt Warrington House we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to looking after your oral health and that is why having regular appointments with your highly trained dental professional is just as important as your routine checkups with your dentist. We offer dental hygiene services to help you enjoy good oral health, improve the aesthetics of your smile and prevent future problems with your teeth and gums.

One of the most effective hygiene treatments is a scale and polish. This involves scaling the teeth above and below the gum line to remove plaque and tartar that ordinary brushing cannot do alone, clearing away bacteria and preventing bad breath, then polishing them to produce a healthy, shiny finish. A scale and polish can also help to remove surface stains, making teeth look whiter and brighter.

As well as hygiene treatments, our friendly team are always on hand to provide oral hygiene advice including healthy eating and how to keep dental problems at bay. We can show you how to brush properly and effectively when at home and how to use floss and inter-dental brushes to remove food debris and plaque from places your toothbrush simply can’t reach.

Why is dental hygiene important?

Dental hygiene is important for a number of reasons, not least because research has shown that poor oral health contributes to an increased risk of serious medical conditions, including heart disease and diabetes. Always brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste in addition to using mouthwash and regular flossing. Try to avoid food and drink high in sugar or acid, as these cause bacteria to build up and produce plaque acids in the mouth which attack the enamel and leave teeth susceptible to decay and erosion.

Regular visits to the dentist and hygienist are an important part of your oral care regime. A healthy, attractive smile will help you to feel more confident about yourself and enable you to show your true personality.
