Hygiene Therapy

Hygiene Therapy Services in Worthing

The key to a beautiful smile lies in proper oral hygiene. Routine steps to maintain the health of your teeth and gums might seem sufficient but home-brushing and flossing will only get you so far. The truth is that a programme of visits to the hygienist and dentist twice yearly is the only way to ensure that plaque, calculus, tooth decay and cavities do not sabotage the health of your mouth.

Why? Because only a dental hygiene examination can spot all the problems below the surface that may be affecting your teeth and gums. The difficulty with dental decay, for instance, is that you may not even be troubled by pain until it’s too late in the day.

Most of the dental problems you can think of can be prevented simply by undergoing checks by a dentist. That’s why we at Marine Dental Practice, Worthing, have gone the extra mile to provide a wide range of dental hygiene therapies to meet your personal needs.

Our clinics are open to patients of all ages.

From gum disease to tooth alignment, we can take you through any of our one-off or on-going procedures to ensure you do everything in your power to protect your teeth and gums.

Research has shown that many people only use a toothbrush occasionally. But it’s important to repeat: by themselves, the traditional mouth-cleaning processes are rarely enough to keep all your teeth healthy. Therefore, visit us at Marine Dental Practice, and let our team of specialists take better care of you.

What our dental hygiene therapy looks like?

For some people sitting in the dentist’s chair can be an unnerving experience. But there’s no need to worry, because we at Marine Dental Practice Worthing, always ensure that you feel at home during your visit. Our dental experts have been trained both to treat you and to help put you ease throughout the duration of therapy.

Our well-qualified team of dental hygienists will carry out a complete assessment of your oral health to ensure that you aren’t prone to any future infection. We can also make recommendations and treat prevalent disease, if necessary. That’s another reason why it’s advisable to attend for regular dental checks.

During our dental hygiene therapy, we conduct a full assessment of your mouth, gums and teeth. We also discuss any issues you might have had since you last visited a dentist and the steps you have taken so far to handle them. We may enquire about your diet, current approach to teeth-cleaning and whether or not you smoke – this will help us to assist you in protecting your mouth. We discuss the treatment risks and costs to make sure it suits your budget, and the next stage is set for you to make an appointment with us to fit with your schedule.

To recap: it’s important to go for dental checks at least twice a year to determine the conditions of your mouth, teeth and gums. If you are able to visit more often than this, better still. If you ever encounter issues in booking an appointment with us, please let us know and we will speedily resolve the matter.

How we carry out our dental procedures

Before we move on to the next stage of in a programme of work, we discuss it with you to ensure we are all on the same page. This also helps us focus more attention on areas causing alarm or worry.
This is generally achieved by:

  • Assessing the tissues around the mouth, gums and teeth.
  • Proper examination of the tongue, palate, salivary glands and lymph system.
  • Carrying out an X-ray of some parts of the mouth. We can also place an intra-oral camera in your mouth, to make examination easier.
  • As just mentioned, a two-way discussion of everything we do.
