Keeping your teeth and gums healthy and disease-free has real benefits for your overall wellbeing, so including a dental hygienist in your life is one of the smartest things you can do.
At Lewisham Dental Practice we are passionate about prevention, so we provide a full range of hygiene services.
Scaling and polishing - this is our way of saying that our hygienist thoroughly cleans the teeth, removing sticky plaque and hard calculus as well as cleaning the gums and finishing with a polish. We all need a good clean, usually every six months, but some of us need to go even more often. Our hygienist can advise what is best for you.
Oral disease care and prevention - with good oral maintenance we can almost always slow down plaque build-up and prevent oral diseases like tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontitis. By following our hygienist's advice you can be your own hygienist, with great success. If you make seeing a hygienist a regular thing, the hygienist will be able to monitor the health of your mouth, including early cancer detection.
Children - our hygienist is an expert at putting children at ease. It's important that children visit the dentist from a very early age. As well as cleaning children's teeth, our hygienists gives the best advice on what is best for your children's oral health, from cleaning techniques to diet.
Teeth whitening - that's right, our hygienist can also give you a celebrity smile, so come in and give yourself some glamour.
