Oral Hygiene

Preventing dental issues through regular oral care

General

Oral Hygiene

Having a healthy and bright smile is important for your overall health and self-confidence.

At Visage Dental Group, we offer a variety of services designed to keep your smile healthy. We provide comprehensive cleanings, preventive treatments, and restorative treatments to help protect and maintain your teeth and gums. During your regular check-ups, we will check for signs of gum disease, cavities, and other dental problems. We will also provide professional cleaning of plaque, tartar, and other debris from your teeth.

Scaling and polishing:

Scaling and polishing are essential dental treatments that help to maintain healthy teeth and gums. At our dental clinic, we use the most up-to-date technology to ensure that these procedures are performed quickly and safely. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to offer a comprehensive range of services, including scaling, root planning, and polishing. We use ultrasonic scalers and other advanced technology to remove plaque and tartar buildup, while polishing helps to restore a natural shine to the teeth.

Our hygiene appointments:

Our hygiene appointments usually last between 45-60 minutes and involve several different steps:

1. Examination: We will assess the health of your teeth and gums and check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. X-rays will be taken to look for any problems that are not visible to the naked eye.

2. Cleaning: We will use the latest instruments to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, and also polish your teeth to remove any surface stains.

3. Fluoride Treatment: A fluoride treatment may be recommended to strengthen your teeth and protect them from decay.

4. Discussion: At the end of the appointment, any issues that were identified will be discussed and recommendations for further treatment will be made if necessary.

How much does a routine dental check-up cost?

The cost of a regular dental check-up will vary depending on your individual needs. The cost of the appointment can include the cost of X-rays, the examination, and any treatment that may need to be done.

0% Interest Free Finance. We offer interest free finance on treatments for up to 48 months. Ask our team for more information.

Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an antiseptic mouthwash are all important steps in maintaining good oral hygiene. Additionally, regular visits to the dentist for a professional cleaning and checkup are important for ensuring your teeth and gums stay healthy.

Brushing your teeth is important for removing plaque and bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

It is recommended that you visit the dentist for a checkup at least twice a year. A professional cleaning and checkup can help identify any potential issues with your teeth and gums early on, so that they can be treated before they become more serious.

If you experience any pain or discomfort in your mouth, it is important to contact the dentist as soon as possible. The dentist can help you to identify the cause of your pain and provide the appropriate treatment.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. It is caused by bacteria that accumulate on the teeth and gums, leading to inflammation and destruction of the gum tissue.

A hygienist is a dental professional who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral health issues. They use special tools to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and provide preventive care and education to help maintain good oral health.

Scaling and polishing are a type of dental cleaning that removes plaque and tartar (hardened deposits of plaque) from the teeth. The scaling process removes the plaque and tartar below the gum line, while the polishing process smoothes the teeth, making them easier to keep clean.

Good oral hygiene is essential for maintaining good oral health. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and using an antibacterial mouthwash can help reduce plaque buildup and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Eating a balanced diet and visiting the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings can also help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Both the dental nurse and dentist were compassionate and caring. They made sure I was comfortable before carrying out any procedures, and spoke to me as I was a bit anxious about getting work done-
They were punctual, and managed to fit me in at the last minute. Easy to contact via WhatsApp, with quick response.

Been twice and both times the young dentist is extremely kind and reassuring. Had a tooth extraction today and was seamlessly done. My old dentist was quite rude and abrupt. I'm very glad to have found a dentist that takes pride in her work. Well done to all the team. Thank you so much.

Absolutely fantastic service!! I have had teeth out (well roots) had a new denture the service has been second to none. I have a real fear/phobia of dentists I explained this they have been so understanding and supportive. Simon explained every step clearly so I knew what was happening and at what stage. I can't reccomend him enough.

The staff were very good professional and friendly. Very accomadating to work/school scheduals with appointments. Me and my children had a good experience in the surgery. Also with colouring facilities available it helped to keep the children occupied. The head nurse was amazing and went above and beyond to meet all our needs.
