Reasons Why You Should Always See A Dental Hygienist

Seeing the hygiene team for the removal of hard and soft plaque deposits at the recommended intervals – this will depend on the status of your gum and dental health. Brush your teeth, including the gums twice a day, the evening brush is most important.

Clean between the teeth before your evening brush—Interdental brushes work really well. Change your toothbrush head every 3 months. If your gums bleed, pay special attention to cleaning around that area and bring to the attention of your hygienist.

Smokers are far more at risk of Periodontitis, so quit while you’re ahead!

Disclosing tablets can help you identify plaque that you’ve missed so test yourself regularly at home

1) After your evening cleaning regime, chew the tablet until it turns to liquid, swish this around with your tongue

2) Swill once with water and see what you’ve missed!

Many of our patients visit us for cosmetic treatments. We put great emphasis on the importance of a healthy mouth and achieving this before going ahead with any other treatments. Once firm foundations and a stable environment are established, we have the confidence to provide long lasting dentistry whist minimising the occurrence of preventable disease in the future.

Gum Disease is an infection of the gums. It is caused by plaque, a sticky film that collects on teeth and gums.

When plaque is missed it will cause disease. Red, puffy bleeding gums are all signs of gum disease. Toxins released by bacteria within plaque cause inflammation of the gums.

Gingivitis is a reversible form of gum disease; Periodontitis displays permanent damage.

Both forms can be treated at the practice, but this must be supplemented with gold standard homecare. 

Gingivitis can progress to form Periodontitis, where the gums pull away from the teeth. This results in an infection that destroys the surrounding bone, forming a gap between the gum and tooth surface known as a pocket, where further plaque and tarter will form. As more bone is lost, teeth will become loose, leading to premature tooth loss.

See What Our Patients Say

"I've never had a fear of going to the dentist"

Highly recommended. Richard is my dentist who sees my whole family and has done for years, he is the best in the business (in my opinion). Katie the hygienist is the only one I like seeing and so glad she’s back from maternity! Due to these two I’ve never had a fear of going to the dentist.

Says G Betambeau

"always so kind and understanding"

Angela O’Regan is a truly wonderful dentist. She is also always so kind and understanding. I truly do not know where I would be without her. Ruth is my dental hygienist. She too is excellent and always so helpful in every way. They are both amazing and I am always so grateful to both of them.

Says E Mills

"I've regained trust in the dental profession"

If it weren’t for Andrew Prynne and the amazing team at 740 Dental I don’t know if I’d have ever regained any trust in the dental profession. More importantly, our children are happy and confident to attend their appointments and take on board all the advice offered to them. We always feel fully informed and I know that their comfort with any procedures is of upmost importance to the whole team.

Says C Wilson

"extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming"

I was previously a nervous patient but can’t even remember that now. I lost a front tooth in an accident in my twenties, we struggled keeping a bridge in place. He suggested I get an implant. He is extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming. Quick to sort out any dental emergencies. Ruth is my hygienist and she is also amazing.

Says C Drummond

"Literally the best dentist I have ever been too"

Literally the best dentist I have ever been too! I’ve always been scared and had huge anxiety attacks whilst in the waiting room but since moving here, Andrew has made me feel so comfortable and I don’t dread going to the dentist. Lovely staff, can’t fault anything.

Says A Meek

"understands people's fears of dentists"

Sharon is really good and I would highly recommend her for anyone who struggles going to the dentist. She is kind, takes things at your pace and understands peoples fears of dentists. Thank you so much.
