The Smile Centre prides itself on providing the highest standards which will not be compromised, we will reopen when we are confident that we are able to provide the best dentistry in the most secure environment. For now, please do not visit the practice - You can continue to call us if you have a dental emergency on 01579 342348.

Thank you for your continued patience – we will bring you updates as soon as we have them and guide you through all new processes which will be in place to make The Smile Centre the safest place for you to receive the dentistry you require.

Dental Hygiene

Prevention is better than cure

The Smile Centre team is passionate about giving patients the means and the motivation to smile at the world confidently. We believe that the foundation of a healthy smile is a good oral hygiene routine using the right toothbrushes and interdental cleaning products. Understanding that one size does not fit all, our fantastic team of hygienists is able to customise your oral care routines during your thorough 30-minute appointments by advising you on the best brushing techniques and health care products.

Dental Hygiene Cornwall

Our hygienists are equipped with all the latest technology including intra-oral cameras. The cameras are fabulous educational tools that show you the inside of your mouth and help you to see where you perhaps don’t clean properly or the consequence of a poor oral hygiene routine. We also make good use of a superb system called Airflow; a jet polishing system ideal for removing stubborn stains caused by red wine, smoking, tea and coffee. Airflow treatment leaves your teeth feeling smooth and clean, and your mouth feeling very fresh.

We believe that confidence grows from solid foundations in the form of healthy teeth and gums, and fresh breath. By creating a pleasant environment in your mouth your general wellbeing is improved and you are helping to maintain a healthier heart and improve control of diabetes. And let’s not forget the wonders it can do for your social life! Who doesn’t want to be kissable?

The benefits of dental hygiene

  • Helps keep your teeth healthy for life
  • Helps reduce the risk of gum disease, decay & tooth loss
  • Helps keep your breath fresher
  • Reduces bad tastes & bad smells
  • Reduces the risks linking gum disease & serious illnesses

Achieving oral health and wellbeing requires the collaborative efforts of our hygienists, dentists and you. Determining a personalised treatment plan will help us to identify your aspirations and work towards their fruition using a holistic approach.

Visiting the hygienist should be an important part of your overall health routine, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, lung disease, stillbirths and premature and low birth-weight babies.
