Oral hygiene is an essential aspect of maintaining good dental health. Proper oral hygiene practices can help prevent dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. While regular brushing and flossing are important, they are not always enough to maintain optimal dental health. This is where our oral hygiene services come in.

Whether you are a registered patient, or simply require An Appointment with one of our dental hygienists, we're here to help.

Oral hygiene services refer to the professional services provided by a dental hygienist or dentist to help maintain and improve dental health. These services range from regular cleanings to more specialized treatments such as fluoride treatments, sealants, and periodontal therapy. In this article, we will explore the importance of oral hygiene services and the various services available.
Prevention of Dental Problems: Oral hygiene services are essential in preventing dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar build-up, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated.
Early Detection of Dental Problems: Oral hygiene services also allow for early detection of dental problems. Regular check-ups can identify dental issues before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments.
Improved Overall Health: Poor dental health has been linked to various health issues such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Oral hygiene services can help prevent these issues by maintaining good dental health.

Patient Before & After by Dr Johan 📸

This patient wanted her teeth to be more visible and whiter. She previously had 4 veneers placed, but they were dull and the patient wasn’t happy with her smile.

To get the desired results Dr Johan replaced the 4 veneers with 6 Emax veneers with a BL1 shade.

Patient’s smile is now more visible and she is confident to smile on camera 😀

DO NOT DO IT GUYS ❌🪥

You should know that brushing your teeth after eating can sometimes affect your tooth enamel. By immediately brushing teeth after eating, you might rationalise that you’ll get rid of bacteria before they attack your tooth enamel, however, this can end up being more damaging to your teeth.

Try before you buy 😉

Dr Sophie explains how we think it’s paramount that we “try in” your new smile before we progress. We digitally design your new smile on a computer making all the talked about changes to your smile.

This means you know what you are getting with the final result. It also means we’ve completely designed your smile together. Composite bonding and porcelain veneers are not reversible procedures and it’s a big decision to make before going ahead.

Every treatment plan is bespoke and tailored to you. We work together as a team to build your dream smile.

Trust us with your new smile ✨

From making the initial call with Sarah to treatment I had a fantastic experience.Amazing... atmosphere, perfect for nervous patients like myself! I have worried for years about going to the dentist and “Sophie & Shannon made it all disappear. They were both so patient with me and reassured me throughout the appointment . Taking time to explain everything and what to expect, I never felt pressured or rushed it was exactly what I needed to gain some confidence. I cannot thank all the staff enough and would recommend to anyone who maybe like myself and have worries and concerns.read more

This practice is by far the very best I have been to - ever! ALL the staff are amazing, from the... warmest of welcomes on reception, to the most fantastic and 'state of the art' dental treatment by an experienced, professional and extremely caring dental team. The premises are inviting, relaxing, and absolutely spotless. I've instantly gone from a terrified patient to feeling reassured and happy with my treatment plan - in a very short period of time. I just wish we had found them sooner, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them (in fact I do so at every opportunity!) Never before has a dentist extracted my teeth without sedation, but Dr Johan did so with the very minimum of discomfort. I have now regained my smile, and could not be happier - thank you!read more

We lived in Canada for 20 years and when we returned to the UK eight years ago we struggled to find... a hygienist as thorough as our Canadian hygienist. Then we found Ramsbottom Dental Clinic and Kelly the hygienist. She is thorough but gentle and a lovely friendly person. The new premises are lovely with a large airy and bright waiting area. The receptionists are great and always make you feel welcome. I thoroughly recommend this dental practice.Lesley Welbourneread more

Went to see Dr Sophie yesterday with my 12 year old daughter who had chipped her front tooth. ... Sophie & her assistant Jo were absolutely lovely & did the most amazing job restoring her tooth to its former beauty with composite bonding. Thank you soooooo much from both me & Olivia. I am so impressed with this dental practice, from my initial call & correspondence with Sarah, up to the appointment itself & would highly recommend.read more
