Hygiene and Preventive Care
Our Hygienist, Lianne Broome is highly trained, motivational and an essential team member.
Many years of clinical experience and the latest scientific evidence proves that the cornerstone of long term dental health is good oral hygiene.
Dental plaque is a bacterial film that sticks to your teeth, gums and dental restorations. If left unchecked it can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and failure of your dental restorations.
Tooth decay will damage perfect teeth and undermine any new dental work.
Gum disease leads to bad breath, unsightly and sore gum inflammation and loss of bone supporting the teeth. This can eventually lead to tooth loosening and loss.
Lianne will assess your current gum condition and provide you with the skills to improve dental place removal. This involves bespoke tooth brushing and flossing techniques and a total mouth cleaning.
LASER GUM TREATMENTS AT THE OLD RECTORY
Lianne is now certified with the British Institute of laser dentistry and is qualified to undertake Specific laser treatment for gum health benefits.
The laser can be used to aid the removal of bacteria between tooth and gum.
It can dramatically lower the bacterial count without the use of antibiotics therefore improving gum health.
LASER COLD SORE AND ULCER TREATMENTS AT THE OLD RECTORY
Lasers can also be used in the treatment of cold sores and ulcers. Application of the laser increases blood circulation and promotes healing.
We usually recommend that you visit the hygienist prior to any extensive dental treatment to make sure that any new dental restorations are placed into the healthiest possible environment.
The Old Rectory Dental practice is committed to providing you with constant preventative care and as such recommend regular visits to ensure that you feel confident to care for your beautiful smile. You may wish to consider our Healthy Smile dental Plan to allow you to budget for all your preventative dental treatment, examinations, hygiene and routine x-rays with regular monthly payments.
It is no longer necessary for the patient to see a dentist or provide a prescription before a hygiene appointment.Back to treatments »
