When it comes to your teeth, prevention is definitely better than cure.
The best preventative step you can take is to have regular check-ups with our dentists and hygienists so we can keep a close eye on the health of your mouth, gums and teeth. Keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy should significantly reduce the amount of dental work you will ever need.
It’s never too late to start getting it right!
Good dental hygiene can prevent almost all common dental conditions including tooth decay and gum disease. With careful and regular brushing and flossing it is possible to avoid any loss of adult teeth.
Most people need a hand establishing and maintaining a good brushing and flossing technique and this is where our dental hygienists, Jemma and Holley, can help to ensure that your mouth, gums and teeth are healthy and clean, and stay that way.
Regular visits to our hygienist will give you confidence that your breath is fresh and your smile is at its best and if you’re a member of our dental plan you get two free standard hygiene appointments per year with our hygienists.
Get fresh breath confidence.
Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes.
Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums. Strong food such as garlic, onions, some spices and coffee can add to the problem.
It can also be caused by medical problems such as dry mouth, some medicines, breathing through the mouth rather than the nose, infections of the throat, nose or lungs, sinusitis, bronchitis, diabetes and liver or kidney problems. If we find your mouth is healthy, we may recommend a referral to your GP for further investigations.
Our dental hygienists will be able to provide any treatments necessary to ensure your gums are healthy. They can also provide you with advice and information about products that can help with bad breath.

The people here are extremely understanding, I don't have the most perfect teeth but they show patience, kindness and are constantly advising so that I can hold onto my teeth! The hygienist is the nicest lady, constantly listening and extremely sympathetic. I'd rather pay and know my teeth are being cared for well I've heard so many horror stories from other practices, so I stay here with people I trust!
