Toothaches and bad breath are the unpleasant result of bad oral care. It’s important to know exactly how to look after your teeth, as every mouth is different. We’re happy to advise you on your oral hygiene regime and get you started with professional cleaning.


How Your Hygiene Appointments Treatment Works

Going to your dentist regularly and getting your teeth professionally cleaned is really important because no matter how conscientious you are at cleaning there will be areas in your mouth, especially around the back teeth, that you will miss and plaque will gradually build up.

If left untreated this can lead to bad breath, gum disease and tooth loss.

Here at Buttercup, our hygiene services range from a simple scale and polish with one of our dentists under the NHS, to private hygiene appointments with one of our Hygienists.

Some patients with advanced gum disease may require an intensive course of hygiene treatment and then hygiene appointments every three months until their condition has cleared but otherwise we advise our patients to have a hygiene appointment every three to six months.


Does It Hurt

Not at all! A hygiene appointment is just a deeper, more professional cleaning of your teeth and gums.

Hygiene Appointments FAQ's

Check out some of our most frequently asked questions.

Brushing and flossing twice a day is a big part of keeping your mouth healthy. Doing this removes the food and plaque buildup that can cause decay and damage. Also your diet has a huge effect on your teeth so try to avoid sugar. Regular check ups with the dentist are also very important.

It is recommended you get a hygiene appointment every six months to keep your mouth in healthy working order. However, if you are worried about any problems with your teeth, gums or bad breath, you should book an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible.

You should replace your toothbrush every two to three months. This is because the bristles start to wear away and aren’t as good at removing plaque.

If brushing your teeth makes your gums bleed, it’s time for a quick check up. Over sensitive gums can be a symptom of gum disease. Early stage gum disease is also called gingivitis, and this is the stage where you really want to catch it!

In most cases, all we need to do is give your teeth a good clean and show you a few tips on how to clean them effectively yourself. If you leave it too long, gingivitis can become periodontitis and then the treatment gets slightly more complicated.

A 30-minute private hygienist appointments costs £54.
