Hygiene & Gum Health

Dental hygiene is an extremely important part of maintaining a healthy smile and mouth.

At Whickham Dental our patients have access to the professional services of our dental hygienists who are highly trained in the prevention of gum disease and can recommend specialist cleaning advice to help you in achieving first-rate standards of oral cleanliness.

If your dentist advises you to visit the hygienist your visit will include:

  • Full ultrasonic tooth cleaning
  • Stain removal
  • Oral hygiene guidance
  • Assessment of your gum health
  • Assessment of your current oral hygiene

We offer a wide range of oral health care products to help you preserve good oral health between your visits. We recommend that you consider your oral health care as part of your daily beauty regime. Your hygienist can give you information on suitable tooth brushes, toothpastes, mouthwash and floss.

Some useful tips to maintain your oral care:

  • Brush at least twice each day
  • Floss in between your teeth
  • Consider a mouthwash as part of your daily routine
  • Visit your hygienist at least twice a year or as you have been recommended
