Good oral hygiene is not only beneficial for your dental health — but it is also essential for your overall health and wellness. At Elm House, we focus on preventative dentistry to ensure you and your family have a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Preventative dentistry encompasses an effective at-home oral hygiene routine, as well as regular examinations and professional cleanings to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. To maintain optimal oral health, it is recommended you visit your hygienist and dentist every 6 months.
Our comprehensive dental hygiene programme is designed to preserve your teeth and the supporting structures by preventing tooth decay and gum disease. A scale and polish removes plaque, tartar, and debris from the surface of the teeth, in between the teeth, and underneath the gum line, areas that a toothbrush can’t reach.
Your dental hygienist can also provide advice on how to properly brush and floss around restorative or cosmetic dental work and braces.
An integral part of our preventative care programme for children includes fluoride treatments and fissure sealants.
Preventative dental services also include an oral exam and x-rays. Regular dental visits can help our dental team identify and address any issues before they become complex and require more invasive treatment.
For a healthy and bright smile, call us on 020 8520 7117 to book your hygiene cleaning and dental exam.
Very pleased with Elm Dental Surgery! For over 10 years - excellent care. Professional and Friendly
I've been scared of the dentist for a very long time, but toothache forced me to make an appointment. A friend recommended Elm House to me and I'm so glad she did. The dentist I saw today was so patient and kind, explaining everything perfectly. Actually all the staff were great, including the receptionists. I will definitely go back and I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thank you Elm House, my faith has been restored.
