Protects against gum disease and bad breath

Dental Hygienist AirFlow Teeth Whitening in Steyning, Sussex - Down House Dental PracticePreventative oral hygiene measures make it far less likely that you will have to undergo corrective dental treatment, or suffer from adult tooth loss. During your 30 minute appointment, your gums will be examined and any stains on your teeth will be removed via a scale and polish treatment. If you suffer from bad breath, your dental hygienist near Brighton will look for the underlying cause.

  • Helps prevent future dental problems
  • Puts an end to bad breath
  • Have your teeth thoroughly cleaned
  • Gum examination
  • Invaluable oral hygiene advice provided

When we brush our teeth, we don’t always manage to remove all the food deposits from our last meal. When food deposits linger, they can cause tooth decay and lead to plaque. Detecting these food deposits and removing them before your teeth begin to decay will reduce your chances of having fillings. Treating plaque before it becomes gum disease means you won’t have to undergo corrective gum therapy.

Our dental hygienist in Steyning, Sussex will advise you as the best tooth cleaning techniques to ensure you help yourself to keep your teeth cleaner and healthier.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I visit the hygienist?

Our hygienist and dentist will advise you on the frequency of hygiene visits required. We have four membership plans available with 2,3,4 and 6 hygiene visits included per year. The hygienist is also available to non-plan patients on a private fee paying basis. We believe visiting your hygienist on a regular basis, will help protect you from serious dental problems.

Do you offer direct access hygiene appointments?

Yes, we do. A direct access hygiene appointment means you can see a hygienist without first having to see a dentist.

What does scaling involve?

Scaling will remove hard deposits from your teeth that are difficult to get rid of using just a tooth brush. This treatment help prevent plaque from forming.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
