As well as regular dental check-ups, a good dental hygiene regime is essential to maintaining a healthy mouth for patients of all ages.
At Benhill Dental Practice we have our wonderful Hygienist Rachael. She is approachable, gentle and meticulous. She provides the following hygiene treatments;
Regular hygiene visits are important to treat and prevent gum disease, which is one of the leading causes of tooth loss, and which can also lead to other unpleasant conditions such as bad breath. Early symptoms of gum disease include gums that bleed when you brush your teeth, swelling and discomfort in the gums. If you notice any of these symptoms you should book an appointment with our Hygienist straight away. Many people will experience mild gum disease at some point in their life and, as with all dental health conditions, the quicker it is spotted, the easier it is to manage and treat.
As well as thoroughly cleaning your teeth at the practice, Rachael will provide you with bespoke home care advice, including the best brushing techniques for patients of all ages, and the correct way to use products such as dental floss or interdental brushes to help keep your mouth happy and healthy.
Rachael's is very popular and in high demand, therefore we advise booking at least 6 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.
Note: A £20 deposit is required for all patients wishing to book with the hygienist. Should you fail to attend your appointment this will not be refunded.
I have been coming to Benhill Dental Practice for a number of years' now and purely because of the treatment and service provided by Dr Alexandra Fivey and support staff.
My 9 year old daughter recently had to have two fillings and an extraction, Dr Alexandra handled her so well and we were so pleased with the outcome! I couldn't recommend her enough as a dentist! Thank you!
Enjoyed the visit. Pleasant, polite and pain free. Good environment.
Excellent, Mr. Lee was fantastic as usual.
Always enjoy our visits to the dentist here - great staff throughout.
