A recent survey by the British Dental Foundation has found that two thirds of people over 55 have regrets about their oral hygiene, wishing they could turn back the clock and take better care of their teeth. Are you in danger of becoming one of them? It is never too late to change your habits…
Book an appointment with the hygienist
One of the most important things you can do for your teeth is see a hygienist regularly. A hygienist will give your teeth a deep clean, meticulously ridding them of harmful tartar and removing stains – and then a polish to give your smile an extra shine. At our specialist dental practice in London, our hygienists are Abi Ball and Tracy Tang; experienced, award-winning dental hygienists who are dedicated and gentle in their approach. Abi and Tracy can set you back on the right dental track.
Don’t bury your head in the sand
One in three people admit that a visit to the dentist makes them moderately anxious. There are several likely reasons for this: childhood memories of austere dental surgeries, the feeling of vulnerability as you lie back in the chair, the sound of the drill and, even though you know you won’t feel anything because of the anaesthetic, the anticipation of pain.
At 76 Harley Street, we are very mindful that some patients have a negative history of dental treatment. All of the practitioners at our specialist dental practice are trained in dealing with very nervous patients and do so with sensitivity and reassurance.
A comfortable pain-free experience is paramount to our practice; it is not just anaesthetics and analgesics that help us deliver this to our London patients – but the most up-to-date technology and a team of compassionate specialists, too. It’s also possible to listen to music or watch the film of your choice, to take your mind off your treatment.
If you think your teeth have been neglected, now is the time to act. It is now possible to make a hygienist appointment without seeing a dentist first; call 020 7631 3276 or click through to our contact page.
