Attending regular hygienist appointments is extremely important in tackling and preventing gum disease and other destructive issues like tooth decay. For the majority of patients, we recommend attending a hygienist appointment every six months.
As the saying goes, prevention is definitely better than a cure when it comes to dental hygiene. At Field House Dental Practice, we aim to provide our patients with knowledge and skills to be able to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Our experienced team of dentists and hygienists are here to help you keep your teeth and gums in a fantastic condition.
Having good oral hygiene begins at home. Diligent brushing with an appropriate toothbrush, along with flossing, will get you off to a great start. However, no matter how well you look after your teeth at home, the bacteria that leads to both tooth decay and gum disease can often find its way into places in the mouth that is impossible to reach without professional care.
Our hygienists are on hand to help you and support your cleaning efforts at home. Using the latest equipment, they will remove any tartar (hardened bacteria) that has built up over time in difficult to reach areas. This thorough clean will leave your teeth feeling amazing and help to fight off gum disease.
Our hygienist will perform a treatment to remove any tartar, plaque and staining. This will result in you walking away from your appointment with a fresher, cleaner feeling mouth. Our hygienist will also check your mouth over for symptoms of gum disease and other oral problems. Most importantly, you will receive advice on the best way you can look after your teeth at home.
As an established patient of Field House Dental Practice for many years, I have always been impressed by the service level. Since Chris and Janet took over however, the Practice has, in my view, gone further from strength to strength. Facilities are being upgraded, Support Staff are most professional but still very friendly and the clinical delivery is increasingly impressive. Quite apart from doing her job of cleaning my teeth, Victoria manages to be delightfully motivational concerning 'self-help' in between check-ups. I recently had to undergo a deep filling courtesy of Chris, which was the least unpleasant, completely pain and discomfort free, dental experience I have ever had. Underpinning this was a level of communication in language I could understand, delivered with friendly yet professional re-assurance, that I have not previously experienced in my 60 odd years of visiting dentists....
Dear Chris, I would like to say my experience with you as my dentist has been a very positive one. You took time to explain to me exactly what you were doing and why. The procedures never felt rushed and I felt completely at ease. I would say to anyone considering treatment with you to go ahead and they will not be disappointed. In actual fact, you have given me my confidence back, for which I thank you. My treatment was excellent and I received many positive comments. It’s great to smile and be proud of my teeth. You only have one set of teeth and I believe any money and time spent is a good investment, even though my mum paid for them. Thank you for your patience, kindness and understanding ways towards a very anxious dental patient.
I had been wanting to straighten my teeth for a good few years after my perfectly straight teeth began shifting in my mid-twenties, it had come to a point where my top front teeth had become quite crooked. I wanted a treatment that would not take too long and since I only wanted my front 4-6 teeth straightened I set my sights on the Inman aligner after some research. Thankfully the Inman aligner was a suitable option, Dr Chris explained its limitations, especially on rotated teeth and how it would work and roughly how long it could take. I was very happy with the information given and after a few months treatment with the Inman aligner (a visit to the dentist every 2 to 3 weeks during treatment) and a one month treatment at the end with a clear aligner...
Dear Janet, Just a short note to thank you for all your help and care over the last four years, since I moved to Wadhurst. You have combined a thoroughly reassuring professional approach with a relaxed and friendly demeanour. I have been particularly pleased with the way you have managed my rather poor teeth. There has been no drama over the sometimes difficult repair work and while I would have preferred not to have had the procedures, I am certain my teeth are now in far better condition that a few years back. I would strongly recommend your care to potential patients who are thinking of joining your practice. Professional, skilled and friendly sum it up.
