Scale & Polish
A professional cleaning of your teeth freshens your mouth, brightens your teeth as well as helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Dr Alison J Brown will also give you individual oral hygiene advice on the best products to use at home. She will give you one-to-one tuition on how best to care for your mouth in between your check-ups and will be able to advice on maintaining a healthy mouth.
Some dental surgeries choose to use a hygienist but Alison prefers to do this herself as it provides an opportunity for her to examine your mouth and for you to talk to her about any of your concerns. During scaling she will gently remove the hard deposits which cause gum disease and she will polish the teeth to remove stains. She will discuss any problems which you may be having such as bleeding gums and how best this can be treated.
Gum disease is often a painless disease and it is important to catch it in time before it can loosen your teeth. Alison will show you how best to care for your gums and she will monitor your gums at each visit. Sometimes you may be recommended to use certain oral hygiene products and she will explain how these should be used for maximum benefit. Alison will also give you dietary advice if required.
Dr Alison J Brown is experienced in providing treatment for patients who suffer from dry mouth and other medical conditions which make the mouth and gums uncomfortable.
