Have you hit the gym, cut the calories and given up the booze to kick start your healthy new year?

But did you remember to put a visit to the hygienist on your to-do list too?

People with poor oral health are more likely to suffer from other diseases, and unfortunately as we age we are more likely to have gum disease.

Fifty percent of the over 45s suffer from gum disease which has links to other conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even dementia. 

But there is plenty you can do to tackle it and get a healthy smile at the same time.

Regular visits to the hygienist will ensure the removal of plaque from your teeth as well as provide you with advice on the best way to care for your teeth at home.

The hygienist will also show you how to use floss and interdental brushes correctly to remove the hard-to-reach plaque between your teeth.

Plaque is a sticky, colourless film of bacteria and sugars that constantly forms on our teeth and is the main cause of cavities and gum disease.

Our hygienists are are also able to advise on dental implant hygiene and maintenance. Our website Moreton Dental Care has more information about our Hygienist Services, including video demonstrations showing correct brushing and flossing techniques.

Contact our reception team on 0151 677 2917 to make an appointment with one of our hygienists.
