Does your mouth need an MOT?
If your mouth is feeling like it needs a good clean, an oral hygiene check-up may be just the thing you need. After all, you look after the rest of your body, so why should your mouth and especially your teeth, be any different?
Let’s look at what an oral hygiene routine will consist of.
Oral hygiene check-up services
At Woodborough House, we believe an oral hygiene routine should consist of a professional clean, scale and polish. But in some circumstances, more work may be required. This is where we can provide treatment for gingivitis and more complex periodontal disease (gum disease), remove unsightly stains using an “air flow” technique.
Our qualified dental hygienists Helen and L’ren can carry out these procedures including fluoride applications, diet and smoking cessation advice. Problems with mouth odour can also be dealt with and between them, our dental hygienists can offer you up to date knowledge and advice on the latest concepts and products, as well as provide you with a patient centred prevention programme – usually consisting of an oral hygiene routine you can follow at home.
Brushing your teeth twice daily and remembering to rinse and floss, is really the most important part of any oral health regime.
Get mouth healthy
No matter what your lifestyle choice, you can have the teeth of your dreams and a healthy mouth too if you follow a good oral hygiene routine and remember to brush properly, especially after eating too many sweets/sugary foods which can help plaque to form. Don’t scrimp on dental hygiene check-ups – they really are a vital part of having a healthy mouth.
Regular dental check-ups with a dentist or hygienist will be able to check for any signs of gum disease developing for example, which may be hard to spot to the untrained eye.
So if you think your mouth is looking for a dental MOT, why not give us a call here at Woodborough House on 0118 984 3108 where one of our team will be happy to help you.
