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.
Both myself and my wife came to Chris for teeth straightening after we missed out on having this done in our teens. We initially met with a couple of other local orthodontists and Chris stood out as being experienced and enthusiastic to help. I'm now very happy with the outcome and my wife (who's braces are due to be removed soon) is very happy with progress too. I also found the Fieldhouse reception team to be helpful and accommodating . Highly recommended. Thanks Chris.
I am absolutely delighted with the results. I just wish I had done it earlier in life! Thank you so much help and attention to detail throughout the whole process.
A few years ago, I had a lot of problems with my teeth. I was recommended Field House Dental Practice by a friend because they paid such good attention to her teeth, which had been in the same bad shape as mine were then. Moving to the practice was the best thing I ever did. Now my teeth are in really good condition and are cared for regularly. Recently I had a tooth fall out due to old problems (these things happen) and what excellent job they did on replacing it! The implant is fantastic and you wouldn't know it wasn't my own. Also, having spent years as a child having more fillings than I cared for, I used to be scared of going to the dentist, but the dentists - Chris and Janet Ibbot - both clearly explain what...
During a routine check-up, Chris informed me that two adjacent back teeth were showing signs of the old mercury amalgam fillings leaking into the teeth. He explained the consequences of this if left untreated, and recommended ceramic onlays as the most suitable way of saving the teeth from further deterioration and generally giving them a new lease of life. He also clearly explained the procedure including any possible snags as well as the cost, all of which I went away to consider for a few days before deciding to go ahead and booking the two quite lengthy appointments. The first to drill out the old fillings, generally prepare for the onlays and fit temporary fillings, and the second about a fortnight later to fit the onlays that had been made in a dental laboratory. I have been very satisfied with the...
