Hygiene

The importance of dental hygiene

It’s impossible to over-emphasise the importance of good dental hygiene. This is because poor oral health can lead to all kinds of conditions from tooth decay to gum disease, not to mention bad breath. On the more positive side, there’s also the self-confidence that knowing you have good dental hygiene can bring.

This is why we see our role as also being able to clean your teeth professionally and advise you on the best ways to keep them clean and your mouth healthy.

Our hygienists can clean, scale and polish your teeth and show you the most effective ways to prevent the build up of plaque and other deposits. We also have a range of toothbrushes, floss and interdental brushes available for purchase which our hygienists will be able to show you how to use most effectively.

Actions which you can take yourself include brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing at least once a week. Rinsing with mouthwash can also help, as can chewing sugar-free gum after meals.

Remember, if we want to have healthy teeth and gums that need the minimum of dental intervention, it all has to start with good oral hygiene.

" What our Patients say "

Hi i really have to recommend Batley Carr Dental Surgery, especially one particular Dentist- very helpful, thorough, professional, gave loads of dental advice, explained fully and nicely whilst doing dental procedures, 10/10, top Dentist! and top Dental Surgery! Recommend to all!
Thanks for making me feel so welcome at your practice. I only came for a scale and polish but unlike dentists at other practices who rush when it comes to carrying out this treatment I appreciate that the dentist spent much longer cleaning my teeth carefully and clearly did not rush the procedure.
