Did you know that long term plaque build-up (and subsequent gum disease which happens when the bacteria in plaque attacks our gums below the surface to make them red and inflammed) is one of the most common causes of tooth decay and eventual tooth loss in the UK?
That's why, at Styvechale Dental Care, we recommend dental hygiene appointments at least every six months with either our friendly dental hygienist (Jill Young) or one of our dental therapists (Isobel Hurst or Alisha Lall). Playing an important part in reducing your oral health problems, your dental hygiene appointment will include the following:
We have a dental hygienist available 3 days a week at Styvechale Dental Care, and are therefore also able to offer same day check-up and hygiene appointments for the convenience of our patients.
Jill is a fully qualified dental hygienist, and Izzy and Alisha are a fully qualified dental therapists, who are all registered with the General Dental Council. As dental professionals, they are also committed to Continuous Professional Development and to keeping up to date with the latest advancements in oral health care techniques.
I can thouroughly recommend this practice to anyone who is nervous or has a dental phobia. My own experience has been of one who has gone from being terrified of dentists to being able to undergo any dental procedure. The staff are gentle, kind and caring with endless patience.
