Dental Hygiene

Refreshing and preventative dental hygiene appointments for the family

The easiest and most affordable way of keeping your smile bright, healthy and sparkling is to visit the dental hygienist regularly and prevent any chance of decay or gum disease wreaking havoc on your teeth.

The dentists and hygienists at our South Woodham Ferrers practice are dedicated to providing their patients with comprehensive, preventative care to ensure optimal health, prevent cavities, and maximise tooth retention.

What’s involved in a dental hygiene appointment?

We work as a team to make sure your smile stays healthy for as long as possible through removing any build-up of plaque, conducting comprehensive oral examinations which screen for oral cancer and gum disease, and providing you with the knowledge you need to maintain a sensible oral health regime at home.

Our Chelmsford hygienists can even discuss diet and smoking cessation with you as a means to keep your smile fresh.

A deeper clean with a professional Scale and Polish

The Brickfields Dental hygienists are experts at providing a deeper clean of your teeth through professional scale and polish treatment. A scale and polish involves an intensive and thorough clean of your teeth to support your oral health, and an appointment usually lasts between 30-60 minutes!

Firstly, by using specially designed dental instruments, your hygienist will make sure to remove all deposits of stubborn plaque, tartar and harmful bacteria from deep under the gum line and in-between hard to reach areas of your teeth. After this, the hygienist will polish and clean your teeth to a fresh, smooth and glossy lustre.

Scale and polish treatments are not usually painful procedures, however, do let us know if you suffer from sensitivity and we will accommodate your needs accordingly.

We are your partners in superb oral health

After your regular dental hygiene appointment, you can maintain this fresh feeling for longer with an appropriate at-home oral hygiene routine.

We can provide you with the information you need to form a teeth-cleaning routine suitable for the family that ensures you’re doing what you can between hygiene appointments to keep cavities and gum disease at bay. Flossing and brushing your teeth twice a day should be top priorities!

Safeguard your oral health with the Brickfields Dental Care holistic and preventative approach to dentistry. For healthy gums and fresh breath, book your dental hygiene appointment today with our friendly team and feel confident in your smile.

I have just completed root canal treatment and I cannot fault the highly competent dentist Mitul, who completed the procedure, and Toni who assisted. The atmosphere was extremely professional and the rapport between Mitul and Toni was great which made for an easy atmosphere and consequently put any nerves at ease. The procedure was as pleasant as root canal treatment can be and apart from the initial numbing injection, was completely pain free.I would also like to add that the Covid procedures at Brickfields are excellent and you feel safe at all times.
