not just wash and go


How important is your dental hygiene routine? If you regularly brush your teeth twice a day, floss and rinse then you probably consider yourself to have a healthy smile. This may be true and whilst a regular dental hygiene routine will help your smile to sparkle, your teeth could be sitting on a whole host of problems without you even realising it.

Regular check-ups with a dentist and a dental hygienist are a must for good oral health and to protect yourself from the onset of gum disease. In the long term gum disease can lead to tooth loss and has even been linked to a range of other health problems which at first seem unrelated to your teeth.

Here at Woodborough House, we have a professional team of two hygienists – Helen and L’ren who can help you to achieve a beautiful healthy smile. As Hygienists their role is to provide you with patient focused care and treatment, outlining all the information necessary to help give you a tailored, easy and effective homecare regime which is of the upmost importance when it comes to preventing gum disease.

We all know how hectic modern life can be and how difficult it can be to maintain a brushing, flossing and rinsing routine, but we believe everyone has a right to a nice smile! Helen and L’ren will give you a professional clean using the very latest air polishing machines which the practice is fitted with to remove the signs of unsightly staining without causing any damage to your teeth.

Dental Hygienists Helen and L’ren are also capable of fulfilling all oral health and hygiene needs which include:


  • Treatment for gingivitis and more complex periodontal disease
  • Unsightly stain removal including the use of “air flow”
  • Fissure sealants
  • Fluoride applications
  • Diet advice/Smoking cessation advice
  • Mouth odour
  • Current knowledge and advice on the latest concepts and products
  • Patient-centred prevention programmes


Our dental hygienists are also qualified to fissure seal children’s teeth, give local anaesthetic if required and insert PERIOCHIPS which is a new treatment designed to prevent periodontal disease.


If you need any advice please call us on 0118 984 3108 where one of our dedicated and friendly members of the team will be happy to help discuss your needs.
