Dental Hygiene in Bournemouth

Cleaning, Education and Prevention

At Beechwood Dental Practice Bournemouth, we have always tried to promote the importance of good mouth care, both in the prevention of disease and in the maintenance of a healthy mouth.

A good dental routine at home coupled with our meticulous hygiene care are essential for a healthy mouth. Dental disease, including gum disease and dental decay, is largely preventable and regular visits to our dental hygienists/therapists can significantly reduce the need for treatment by our dentist and save discomfort, inconvenience and money in the future.

Many people think that a Dental Hygienist/Therapist will just clean their teeth, in fact, there is a lot more to it than that! Our team of highly qualified Dental Hygiene /Therapists will help give you a healthy smile that looks and feels wonderful by;

  • Removing all stains from tea, coffee, red wine and curries.
  • Keeping your gums in the pink.
  • Assessing gum health and educating to prevent gum disease.
  • Cleaning and polishing your teeth to keep them sparkling.
  • Helping to reduce the sensitivity in your teeth and /or gums.
  • Making your mouth feel healthier and smell fresher.
  • Having a relaxing, understanding manor to reduce anxiety.
  • Reducing the need for dental treatment in the future.

At Beechwood Dental both our Dental Hygienists are also Therapists and are qualified to carry our simple fillings, replace temporary fillings, crowns and extract deciduous ( milk) teeth and apply sealants and fluoride.

Direct Access – Did you know, you can book an appointment with one of our hygienists even if you are not a patient of Beechwood Dental?

For a professional clean and polish whenever you want…

This fantastic service allows you to see the hygienist without having to see our dentist first and gives you the freedom to choose which treatment best suits you.

So, whether you want hygiene on-the-go or a brighter, sparkling smile for a special occasion, Polish and Go at Beechwood Dental in Bournemouth has just the solution.

Top Tips for Brushing

Step 1 – Brush twice a day for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste and spit don’t rinse after brushing (as rinsing washes away the fluoride).
Step 2 – Visit your dentist and hygienist regularly so that we can spot any problems early – before they come painful and expensive to treat.
Step 3 – Change your toothbrush every three months – any longer and toothbrushes stop working as effectively and start to harbor nasty germs.
