Frequently Asked Questions
What dental hygiene treatments are available at Beverley Dental?
At Beverley Dental, we offer a complete range of dental hygiene treatments to help maintain your oral health. These treatments include professional teeth cleanings, scaling and polishing, gum disease treatment, fluoride applications, and personalised oral hygiene instructions to help make sure you know how to take great care of your teeth and gums at home.
How often should I see the hygienist?
How often you see the hygienist is completely dependent on the state of your teeth and gums.
Your dentist and hygienist will decide on a recall based on your current need and the effectiveness of your at home regime.
My gums are bleeding when I brush?
In most cases, gums bleed when they arent being cleaned effectively, and the plaque that is left behind is damaging them.
Come see the dentist and hygienist to assess what the cause of the bleeding gums may be and how best to treat it.
A good start before you come in is to be brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing or using Tepe’s.

Can hygiene treatments help with tooth whitening?
Hygiene treatments, such as cleaning and polishing, can help remove surface stains from teeth and enhance their aesthetic appearance. However, for significant whitening we suggest professional whitening treatments or other cosmetic options like veneers or bonding.
What are your hygiene treatment recommendations for dental implants patients?
For oral implant hygiene, we suggest brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and low-abrasive toothpaste; flossing daily with either an interdental brush or floss threader; and using an antimicrobial mouthwash. Regular check-ups with our dental professionals are also necessary to protect the health of implants and surrounding tissues. To reduce the risk of implant complications such as peri-implantitis, avoid smoking and limit sugary or acidic foods/beverages.
What dental hygiene recommendations do you have for Invisalign patients?
While undergoing Invisalign treatment, we suggest brushing and flossing after each meal to maintain good oral hygiene. Patients should use a soft-bristled toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste to brush their teeth gently around attachments and along the gum line, flossing carefully to avoid damaging the aligners. Flossing should also be done carefully to avoid damaging them. Finally, patients can use an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and bacteria buildup. Practicing good oral hygiene will help ensure optimal results from Invisalign treatment.
Do hygiene treatments offer any cosmetic dental advantages?
Hygiene treatments provide several cosmetic dental advantages, such as removing surface stains and discolorations, polishing teeth to make them appear smoother and brighter, and reducing plaque buildup that may lead to bad breath or dental disease. Additionally, regular hygiene appointments with our dental professionals can help prevent future dental issues and maintain optimal oral health – essential for a beautiful, healthy smile. At our practice, we provide tailored hygiene treatments tailored to each patient’s individual needs and goals; always striving to deliver the highest quality of care and personalized attention so our patients achieve their desired outcomes.
