At Westbury Dental Care, we offer high-quality dental hygiene services. We encourage all our patients to look after their teeth because as we know healthy teeth and gums are vital to our oral and overall wellbeing. We believe that by keeping your teeth and gums healthy and disease-free has many benefits for your quality of life. Over time, medical studies have found links between oral health diseases and several serious health conditions, including heart disease. Poor oral health can be debilitating, unsightly and, can ultimately, can cost you your teeth.
Our hygienists are vital members of the dental team and important for the success of any routine or complex dental treatments. The long term success of any dentistry you receive is vastly dependent on an excellent relationship between you, your dentist and the dental hygienist. Consequently we recommend regular hygienist appointments. Booking hygienist appointments will help keep your teeth and gums clean. Our dental hygiene services can help to eradicate and prevent a range of dental conditions such as;-
- Bleeding Gums.
- Bad Breath.
- Tooth Decay.
- Mouth Ulcers.
‘Periodontitis’ is the dental term used to describe an inflammatory infection that involves progressive loss of bone beneath the teeth. When left untreated, this causes the affected teeth to loosen and eventually fall out. As a result, we strongly recommend you see our dental hygienists regularly. Everyone needs a good oral clean, usually every six months, but some patients may need to go more often.

Westbury Dental Care offers direct access to our hygienists. We fully understand that in modern-day life, things are busier than ever and general dental appointments can be missed or not attended at all.
