Prevent Decay – Visit Our Hygienists
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy and disease-free has real benefits for your overall well-being, so including a dental hygienist in your life is one of the smartest things you can do.
At Foley Park Dental & Implant Centre in Kidderminster we are passionate about prevention, thanks especially to our hygiene team, who are friendly and fun but also serious, skilled professionals providing a full range of hygiene services.
Scale & Polish
This is the fancy way to say our hygienists will thoroughly clean 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 hygienists can advise what is best for you.
Oral Disease Care & 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 hygienists’ advice you can be your own hygienist, with great success. If you make seeing a hygienist a regular thing, they will be able to monitor the health of your mouth, including early cancer detection.
Children’s Oral Health
Our hygienists are masterful at putting children at ease. It’s important that children visit the dentist from an early age. As well as cleaning children’s teeth, our hygienists give the best advice on what is best for their oral health, from cleaning techniques to diet.
That’s right, our hygienists are also expert at giving you a celebrity smile, so come in and give yourself some glamour. If your teeth are stained, it’s a good idea to have a clean first. If the hygienist removes those stains before the whitening session, you will end up with even brighter teeth.
A dental therapist is a skilled dental practitioner permitted to perform a range of treatments, like permanent fillings, on children and adults referred to them by a dentist.
General oral health advice provided by our hygienists includes:
- Tooth-brushing techniques and tips
- Flossing and interdental brushing techniques and tips
- Types of dental hygiene products for implants, bridges, dentures, braces and other restorations
- Rinses and mouth-washing
- Which foods and drinks are good for your teeth, and which are bad
