The main role of a hygiene visit is to clean your teeth professionally; this is called a scale and polish. However, perhaps the most important role is for showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque, keeping your gums healthy and give oral hygiene instruction tailored to your needs. Carefully removing deposits that build up on teeth (tartar), and teaching you how to prevent it reforming, will go a long way to slowing the progress of gum disease, prevent tooth mobility, tooth loss and bad breath.
Our hygienist at Battle Road Dental Practice will create a bespoke maintenance program for you, ask your dentist about our hygiene services. A clean fresh smile is generally a healthy smile.
