IT ALL STARTS WITH GUM HEALTH
Though regularly overlooked the gums form the foundation of your teeth. This makes caring for them paramount, not only for your oral health by general health too. By practising good oral hygiene, such as daily brushing, flossing, and attending regular check-ups, you can prevent gum disease and the other dental problems that come with it.
Our experienced oral hygienists can help you keep bacteria levels under control, preventing build-up and the infections it can cause. In addition to professionally cleaning your teeth, removing stubborn plaque, we'll show you how to keep your teeth and gums healthy and in peak condition at home.

Simply let the team at Crawley Dental Clinic know and we'll do all we can to make the entire experience a positive one. We wouldn't want you to neglect your oral health due to fear of the dentist, so we'll do all it takes to help you feel comfortable.
Plaque is a sticky colourless film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth and along our gum line after eating and drinking. Though natural, plaque contains bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease. If it is not removed by proper brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar (calculus) that attaches to the enamel on your teeth, as well as below your gum line.
During your appointment, the hygienist will remove any hard calculus and soft plaque that has developed. They'll then polish off any surface staining, restoring your smile for a happier, healthier you.
Book your appointment today to reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and nasty infections that can lead to the need for extensive restorative work.
