Research has shown that patients who regularly visit the hygienist suffer from fewer dental problems in the future. The frequency of visits will vary as every patient has different needs. For example, a patient who has a healthy mouth may be recommended a regular visit of every six to twelve months, where as a patient with advanced gum disease may need regular monthly visits instead.

A hygienist’s role is to prevent and treat gum disease with scaling, polishing and root planing to remove the calculus and plaque.

They can also demonstrate correct flossing and brushing techniques as well provide dietary advice and other information such as how to give up smoking.

Healthy Gums

Your gums are like cushions for your teeth; they surround the teeth in the jaws and help to support them. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush them could be a sign of gum disease, also known as gingivitis.

When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth. A result of this could be losing your tooth so it’s vital to avoid.

To keep your mouth in tip-top shape we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.

Fresh Breath

One of the most common anxieties about our own bodies is bad breath. Of course, it can be socially embarrassing, but it can also be a sign of dental or general health problems.

Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes. If bits of food get stuck between the teeth or on the tongue, they will start to rot and cause an unpleasant smell. That’s why correct brushing technique, including properly cleaning the tongue, is very important in keeping your breath fresh. Strong foods including garlic and onions can also cause bad breath, as can smoking.

Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums. That bacteria is known as plaque, and as well as an unpleasant smell plaque can cause gum disease and dental decay. That’s why regular visits to the dentist and hygienist, and good dental hygiene, are essential.

If you’re worried about your breath, our dental team can help. First we’ll rule out any medical problems, as certain illnesses including nasal and stomach conditions can also cause bad breath. Doctor Ash is medically qualified so can identify such problems and will refer you to your GP if he believes this may be the cause of your bad breath. Then we’ll diagnose any dental issues.

One of the best things you can do to improve your breath is to improve your dental hygiene. That means keeping up regular dental check-ups and hygienist appointments, and taking your dentist or hygienist’s advice on good brushing technique, including cleaning your tongue and in between your teeth. A deep clean, or scale and polish, of your teeth by the hygienist will remove stubborn plaque that can cause an unpleasant smell and can also cause further problems such as gum disease

I had an extensive amount of treatment done at All Smiles starting with 2 baby canine teeth being extracted, then 2 impacted canines extracted and dental implants put in. Throughout the whole process Dr Ash and the team were very professional and friendly. The lovely people that work here definitely made the experience better.

The treatment I have received during the last year at All Smiles has been professional, kind and utterly brilliant. I am immensely grateful for the expertise of Dr Carolina, and thrilled with the results and my teeth have never been more comfortable. I couldn't recommend this practice more highly.

As a nervous patient having a dental implant is scary. I was treated with such patience, everyone at the practice are friendly and take the time to explain everything and make you feel at ease. Thank you all!

I've just had a second implant and the results are just as satisfying as the first time I came here. Dr Ash's professionalism and meticulous attention to detail, combined with the friendly and reassuring manner of him and his staff, are a winning combination. I would recommend anyone thinking of having implants to come here.

I was so pleased to find this dental practice and I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of every member of staff. I was interested in having dental implants. After a lengthy period of time on strong medication for a back problem, my teeth had been badly affected by a lack of saliva. They were discoloured, I had several gaps and needed urgent treatment to resolve the issues. Dr Ash spent so much time talking through all the options with me, he gave me confidence to go ahead. I had several sessions of treatment over a few months. My nervousness was overcome with constant reassurance from every member of the team. I am delighted to say how thrilled I am with the final result. I can smile properly again, the wonky smirk has gone. I can eat almost all foods as long I am sensible and leave the chewy caramels in the box! I would be so happy to recommend this surgery to anyone considering implant work with Dr Ash, or needing routine dental treatments with Dr Dennis. The nursing staff and administrators give such good and friendly support and really take trouble to get to know you. Look no further, this is a first rate surgery at the forefront of modern dentistry.read more
