(And do everything you can to tackle gum disease)
As the saying goes, 'prevention is better than a cure’ and here at Field House Dental Practice in East Sussex, we aim to provide our patients with full support in the fight against dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Our experienced and highly skilled team of dentists and hygienists are here to help you keep your teeth and gums in great shape.
Good oral health begins at home and diligent brushing with an appropriate toothbrush, along with flossing, will get you off to a great start. Unfortunately though, the bacteria that lead to both tooth decay and gum disease have a habit of finding their way into places that simply can’t be reached without periodic professional care to support your efforts at home.
This is where our hygienists are on hand to help. Using the latest equipment, they will remove the tartar (hardened bacteria) that has built up difficult to reach places. Not only will this thorough cleaning help in the fight against gum disease, but will also leave your teeth looking and feeling cleaner too.

Everyone should make regular visits to the hygienist. Together with brushing and flossing properly, it’s one of the best ways you can try to avoid gum disease. More than half of adults across the UK have gum disease, according to NHS estimates. But many people don’t realise they have it.
If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss as well as more serious medical conditions.
Gum disease has been linked to several major health problems including heart disease and strokes.
If you recognise any of these signs you should definitely make an appointment with our hygienist. Our hygienists are passionate about helping patients to prevent gum disease and treating those who have it. And they are committed to teaching our patients the best daily routines for their lifestyles.
