Oral Hygiene & Prevention

Your teeth are only as good as the foundations that support them. Your gum health is vitally important to secure the long term health of your teeth.

Recent studies have also established links between poor oral health and conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease especially in smokers and low birth weight babies. Mouth infections can affect major organs. For example, the heart and heart valves can become inflamed by bacterial endocarditis, a condition that affects people with heart disease or anyone with damaged heart tissue.

What can you do to get better oral hygiene?

Sleep Lane Smiles oral hygiene programme is tailor made to each and every patient to get you scoring top marks for plaque control. Plaque is the sticky film that provides a home for the bacteria that can cause bleeding gums, bad breath, staining, scaly build up and loose teeth. We have the technology to remove tooth deposits with gentle ultrasonic instruments and stain removers giving you a cleaner looking smile.

Our hygienists will help you to find ways to achieve a perfect score with your oral bacteria by getting them down to zero. Your bad breath should eventually go through brushing your teeth twice a day, daily flossing with either flossing tape or interdental brushes and mouth wash. We also highly recommend you visit our dental practice in Whitchurch Bristol for twice yearly check ups as well, to monitor and remove any minor plaque build up.

Our hygienists will work with you to find ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We are full of hints and tips to get you smiling with confidence, smelling sweet and having teeth that will last you a lifetime.
