Good dental health starts right here
We take great pride in what we do and aim to provide the best service to our patients across East Anglia. Our ethos is firmly based on our belief that healthy mouths and gums are the foundations for great dental wellbeing.
Teeth are really important and there are two main problems that occur if we don’t take care of them. Decay in teeth causes pain and discomfort and destroys their structure necessitating fillings and crowns to rebuild them. Gum disease destroys the structures that support our teeth so they eventually become loose and need to be removed. Gum disease is largely preventable by good oral hygiene, proper brushing and having regular monitoring of the soft tissues around the teeth.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy
The two main dental problems are caused by plaque and the efficient and regular removal of plaque is the most important factor in keeping our mouths healthy. Our team of dental hygienists is specially trained to help you achieve a healthy mouth by efficient cleaning and a healthy diet.
Our standard hygiene sessions are 30 minutes. They will help you to look after your teeth and provide expert advice on maintaining a healthy smile at home.

Why is dental hygiene important?
Maintaining your dental wellbeing is vital and your hygiene examination forms an essential part of your healthy living regime. It’s also important to emphasise that hygiene therapy may reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions, especially as some research has suggested a link between gum disease and arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and problems with pregnancy such as premature births and low birth-weight babies.
A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good hygiene care the risks can be easily controlled.
What will happen at my appointment?
Your hygienist will remove any plaque, tartar and stains, before flossing and then polishing your teeth, leaving your mouth feeling clean and refreshed. They will also show you some hygiene techniques you can use at home that are extremely effective in maintaining a healthy mouth.
How much does hygiene treatment cost?
