Want to ensure your gums and teeth are healthy and stay that way?
One of the best things you can do to prevent such dental problems from developing is to make regular visits to our hygienists Jemma and Lesley at Brixworth Dental Practice.
Not only can they give your gums, teeth and mouth a thorough clean to get rid of any lingering bacteria but they can also give you help and advice on how to brush and floss effectively at home.
Jemma from Brixworth Dental Practice explains: “Build-up of bacteria in the mouth is the main cause of most problems in the mouth. No matter how well you brush your teeth no-one can hope to get rid of every trace of plaque by brushing. Any bacteria left can very soon start to harden into tartar which can only be removed by a hygienist using their instruments.”
It is recommended that patients should see a hygienist every six months although in some cases more regular visits may be needed. It is particularly important for people who smoke to see a hygienist regularly.
Jemma and Lesley, who are both known for their friendly approachable manner, can also see children if they need some help with their brushing techniques
