dental hygiene visits
Confidence grows from solid foundations in the form of healthy teeth, gums and fresh breath. Creating a healthy environment in your mouth results in improved general wellbeing. Research now shows links between gum disease and medical conditions such as diabetes and heart conditions as well as a risk of low birth weight babies.
Achieving dental wellbeing requires the combined efforts of our dentist, hygienist and you. Our hygienist, following thorough assessment, will tailor an oral healthy plan that will reflect your lifestyle and goals. It isn’t just a matter of effective cleaning and regular visits; it is also about support and nutritional advice, especially if you are attempting to stop smoking.
Confidence also comes from knowing you have fresh breath. Nothing is worse than not getting too close to people because you worry about your breath. Niamh’s advice will ensure you have the confidence to get up close and personal because her highly skilled treatments will remove the bacteria that cause this problem. These treatments will also leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean and she can also advise on homecare to maintain that feeling between visits.
Using the right products helps enormously too so it is our policy to recommend products and where possible to have them available to purchase from the practice at competitive prices.
