Regular appointments help prevent cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay.
Beyond the bright and healthy smiles they help create, dental hygienists play a crucial role in preventing dental problems. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings by dental hygienists help remove plaque and tartar build-up, which are the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease.
By promoting good oral hygiene practices, our hygienists contribute to better overall health, as oral health is closely linked to conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Regular visits to a dental hygienist can lead to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums!
At Broadway Dental Boutique, your oral health is our priority, and we strive to make each hygiene appointment a comfortable experience. Our highly skilled dental hygienists are passionate about delivering personalised care that suits your needs. With a strong focus on preventive dentistry, we aim to help you maintain a healthy smile all year round.
Assessing Your Gums
The first stage of the appointment involves us assessing your gums, this helps us to get an accurate picture of your situation, so we know which areas need the most attention.
Teeth & Gum Cleaning
Next, we do a thorough cleaning that’ll leave your teeth and gums bacteria-free, we also lift off surface stains which will leave your teeth looking brighter!
Oral Health Tips
At the end of your appointment, your hygienist will give you advice on how to maintain healthy teeth & gums at home, tailored to you and your needs.
Typically, you should have an appointment every six months, but depending on your oral hygiene, it could be as frequent as every three months. This will be tailored to you at your appointment, depending on your needs. Our dental membership makes it easier to keep on top of regular hygiene appointments.
It’s worth arranging to see a hygienist, our team can book hygiene appointments by phone, email or you can book online.
“Went for a scale and polish treatment. Third one so far with Broadway Dental Boutique but best treatment ever!! Ileigha Beagle (my hygienist) was very professional and explained everything so clearly and accurately. Exceptional customer service. If you want to be treated like a patient by professionals who really know what they are doing and not just be treated as a customer and get you in and out then these are the people you want to be handing your money over to!”
