Personalised Preventive Programmes

Personalised Preventive Programmes

We realise that everyone is different and that ‘one size’ doesn’t fit all. Taking all the relevant factors into account including a detailed medical, family and dietary history our dentists and hygienist will formulate a personalised preventive programme to meet the individual needs of each patient. This will include Oral Hygiene instruction, recommending the best oral hygiene products to use to achieve optimal results and advising on how often patients should attend for professional cleaning in order to maintain the health of their teeth and gums.Our practice stocks a wide range of Oral Hygiene Products for your convenience, including:
  • Toothbrushes – manual and electric brushes for both adults and children
  • Toothpastes- including those designed specifically for sensitivity and high fluoride content toothpastes for those patients particularly susceptible to tooth decay
  • Fluoride Mouthwashes which help prevent dental decay and reduce sensitivity caused by gum recession
  • Anti-nflammatory Mouthwashes to help reduce the redness and bleeding associated with gum disease.
  • Interdental Cleaning Aids: Even after thorough brushing, food particles can remain lodged between the teeth leading to gum disease and tooth decay. It is therefore important that cleaning between the teeth is carried out on a daily basis. We stock several products for this purpose and your dentist or hygienist will advise on the one best suited to your needs. Our range includes:
  • Dental Floss/tape/flossettes
  • Single tufted brushes- ideal for those hard to reach spots and for cleaning in and around fixed braces
  • Interdental brushes- Tepe brushes
  • Superfloss- designed to clean in and around bridgework
