Gum disease is the most common disease affecting every family globally. A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are free of the daily build-up of plaque and tartar, whilst regular dental hygiene appointments remove both in those harder to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.

What happens during a dental hygiene appointment?

  • Examination to look for any inflammation, bleeding and plaque or calculus build-up
  • Scale and polish of your teeth to remove all plaque and calculus
  • Daily dental hygiene routine to ensure you can maintain those areas at risk on a day to day basis in between dental hygiene appointments

Our recommended daily Dental Hygiene routine

We have put together a perfect daily dental hygiene routine for our patient:

  • Brush your teeth morning and night with a fluoride toothpaste ensuring you are cleaning all surfaces of your teeth and gently massaging the gum margins
  • Use interdental cleaning aids such as floss or interproximal brushes daily to help remove plaque and tartar in between your teeth
  • Use an electric toothbrush for enhanced cleaning effect
  • Use a good mouthwash after brushing to clean those harder to reach areas

Toothbrushes, mouthwash and floss are all available from our practice. We recommend a regular dental hygiene appointment with Green Park Dental Practice to achieve your perfect smile.
