Dental Hygiene

Caring for your smile couldn’t be easier with a regular dental hygiene appointment with our expert team, here in Boroughbridge. It’s one of the best ways to look after your mouth, teeth and gums and ensure a healthy, happy smile.

Here at Boroughbridge Dental Centre we use the latest hygiene equipment to maintain your teeth and gums. This involves the EMS Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT). A minimally invasive, high level of patient comfort method of removing plaque biofilm.

The perfect place to look after your teeth

Being on top of your oral care is about more than brushing after mealtimes. Regular dental check-ups can identify any problems early, help you to book any necessary treatments and provide useful tips and advice on brushing techniques, appropriate dental products and ways to encourage kids to get on board.

Whether you’re on track with your oral health and care, or it’s been a while since your last visit, our team of dental experts can help create a happy, healthy mouth and renew your confidence in your smile. You can expect:

  • A friendly, caring team with years of experience
  • The latest modern facilities in an ideal location
  • Dental health advice, demonstrations and check-ups
  • Professional cleaning and polish to remove stains, bacteria and plaque
  • Denplan membership, to make oral care easier

Frequently Asked Questions
about Dental Hygiene

Looking after your teeth can also have wider health benefits. For example, severe gum disease (periodontitis) has been linked to conditions such as respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis and coronary artery disease.

Your Ripon dentist will guide you on how often you need a visit, but as a rule of thumb, most patients with a good standard of oral health need 1-2 check-ups per year.

Our patients always cite our friendly, family-centred approach as a strong reason they choose us for their dental practice. Our Ripon experts are highly trained in treating people of all ages, from all walks of life and with all levels of oral health – and can help the very nervous, too.

Our dental experts always encourage patients to have a healthy diet and lifestyle, for instance, not smoking and avoiding too much sugar. We also recommend brushing and flossing twice a day, two minutes a time. If there’s any area of your dental health that you’re particularly concerned about, our experts can help.

Yes! First of all, it’s not just about your teeth – you should be thinking about your mouth as a whole. That means brushing your tongue and using dental floss around the gums. For most patients, we also recommend using a soft-bristled brush and using circular movements to avoid damaging your tooth enamel. Finally, never use mouthwash or rinse your mouth after brushing – it can wash away precious fluoride. Instead, use a mouthwash at a different time of the day.
