Routine oral hygiene

Get your healthiest smile yet! Our oral hygiene appointments are suitable for patients of all ages and will help keep your teeth in the best condition possible.

What does it entail?

Appointments can be 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 1 hour and include an assessment, scale, polish, and oral hygiene and dietary advice to help you keep your smile healthy. We’ll also talk you through our recommended daily oral health care routine.

Who will I meet?

When you visit us for dental treatments, you’ll receive a warm welcome into the Allsopp family. Depending on the day of your appointment, either Julie (Thursdays until 9:00pm) or Sophie (Mondays from 10:00am until 6:00pm) will be your hygienist.

Why is oral health important?

Without a daily oral health routine, you are more likely to suffer from dental decay, bad breath, tooth loss, and gum disease. If left unaddressed, these could develop into even more serious problems such as lung conditions, strokes, heart disease, diabetes, and even mouth cancer.
