Dental Hygiene & Examination
Regular dental examinations, or check-ups, are important and they form the basis of our preventative dental care plan. Even with the perfect oral hygiene routine you can still develop dental problems that you may not be able to spot by yourself . Here at Andover Smile Centre we use Loupes to increase the magnification of teeth so that we can visualize your teeth and gums in detail.
We will give you a through oral examination, with oral cancer screening as standard. We strongly believe in the motto – prevention is better than cure and recommend an examination at least every 6 months to ensure problems are caught early on and treated when they need a “little fix,” instead of waiting until it hurts and a more drastic and costly solution is required.
More than just a scale and polish
Our hygienists are highly skilled and will professionally clean your teeth using ultrasonic/hand scalers and polish to remove any plaque and tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing or flossing alone. Many patients comment on how much smoother their teeth feel after a through clean. Our hygienists are also keen to educate patients on the correct technique of brushing and flossing and give advice on how to maintain a good oral health routine to maintain a healthy smile.
Direct appointment with the hygienist
Following a recent change in legislation by the General Dental Council patients may directly book appointments with the hygienist without having to see a dentist prior.
