At Gosforth Dental Surgery we are true believers that prevention is better than cure and the best way to avoid unnecessary dental treatment is booking regular visits with one of our dental hygienists. We have an extremely experienced team of highly trained and qualified hygienists who all provide the very best oral hygiene services and advice.
It is easy to get your mouth clean and healthy and keep it that way. A simple routine of brushing and cleaning between the teeth, good eating habits and regular dental check-ups can help prevent most dental problems. A few small changes in your daily routine will not only make a big difference in the long run but is also likely to mean that you will need less dental treatments.
At Gosforth Dental Surgery we offer different dental hygiene treatments to ensure you find the treatment that is right for you:
Teeth should be cleaned with fluoride toothpaste and a brush or electric brush according to the recommended brushing technique when waking up and before sleeping at night. It’s also good to combine this cleaning with mouthwash rinses to get rid of all food and bacteria that may collect between the teeth. However, there will still be areas that you will miss, and having regular hygiene appointments will ensure such missed areas are cleaned. The Hygienist at our Newcastle dental practice will tell you where you are missing and prevent problems in these areas.
Unless you need specific dental treatment as advised by your dentist or if you have had an injury to your teeth, gums or jaw, it is safe to visit your dentist every six months. Your dentist at Gosforth Dental Surgery can schedule these appointments for you ahead of time to ensure that your dental hygiene needs are met.
By receiving proper dental care, you can improve not only your overall appearance but also your oral and general wellbeing. Having teeth that look good also encourages smiling and make you feel more confident in yourself. Seeing your dentist at Gosforth dental surgery is important to examine the condition of your teeth, identify plaque or tartar build-up, presence of gum disease and to talk about stain removal options
At our Newcastle dental practice, our dental hygienist is specially trained in preventative oral healthcare to stop or prevent the progression and initiation of gum disease. She will advise you on how best to take care of your teeth and the treatments that you may need
