Dental hygiene

Did you know that long-term plaque build-up (and subsequent gum disease which happens when the bacteria in plaque attacks our gums below the surface to make them red and inflamed) is one of the most common causes of tooth decay and eventual tooth loss in the UK?

That’s why, at Lion House Dental Practice, we recommend dental hygiene appointments at least every six months with one of our friendly and professional hygienist. Playing an important part in reducing your oral health problems, your dental hygiene appointment will include the following:

  • A gentle yet thorough clean of your teeth to remove the build-up of harmful plaque
  • Removal of odour causing bacteria for a fresh breath
  • Soft tissue checks to ensure healthy gums
  • Advice on how to effectively brush and floss your teeth

Stain removal with Air Polishing

Air Polishing uses a spray of air and polishing powder to remove surface stains and dental plaque without causing you any discomfort. This non-invasive treatment, gently removes staining, is kind to the tooth surface and significantly improves tooth brightness, giving you noticeably lighter and brighter teeth

Our Hygienist also provides Teeth Whitening.
