The importance of visiting your dentist on a regular basis

Preventive dentistry is the field of dentistry that is involved in looking after your teeth, keeping them clean, healthy and preventing the development of complications in the future. Maintaining good oral health and having a good dental hygiene routine is important for overall well-being. Without good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist in West Byfleet, plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth and are the main causes of most dental issues. If plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your teeth they can result in cavities and tooth decay, issues which if left untreated can result in gingivitis and periodontitis which are complicated infections of the gum that can eventually lead to tooth loss. Regular visits to your dentist in West Byfleet can make sure that you have an effective dental hygiene routine and that your teeth are clean and healthy. Regular visits will also help ensure that any issues with your teeth or gums are detected very early on to allow successful treatment and prevent further complications in the future. If you are experiencing dental issues or are at high risk of dental problems you will benefit from more frequent visits to your dentist in West Byfleet. If you have good oral health and healthy teeth then you should visit your dentist at least twice a year and you can speak to our team about cosmetic dentistry to help enhance your smile further.

The importance of regular appointments with your hygienist


Alongside regular appointments at your dentist in West Byfleet, it is important to also have regular professional cleaning with your hygienist. Sometimes your dentist will recommend this for you if they think that you have plaque or tartar build-up on your teeth however if you feel like you could do with a professional clean then speak to your dentist here at Byfleet Dental Boutique and book an appointment with your hygienist. The hygienist provides a full examination of your teeth to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and free of any disease. They can educate you on how to look after your teeth and use their knowledge and expertise for recommending good oral hygiene techniques and providing dietary advice tailored to your specific needs. Professional cleaning with your hygienist involves scaling and polishing techniques that are used to remove plaque and tartar. This requires specialist equipment such as hand-held instruments, ultrasonic instruments and techniques such as sonic vibrations to successfully remove any plaque or tatar which may be present on the surface of your teeth, below the gum line or in those hard to reach areas. The hygienist then polishes the teeth using professional dental polishing tools which are used to clear away visible stains and marks or discolouration of the enamel and this helps make your teeth cleaner, brighter and whiter following a hygienist appointment.
