Maintaining Your Smile

Meet Your Dental Therapist, Laura

Meet Your Dental Therapist, Kirsty

Healthy gums are fundamental to all of the procedures we provide. They form a solid foundation on which we can build healthy, happy, long lasting smiles.

Prevention is better than cure and we recommend that all our adult patients attend the hygienist regularly, to have the health of their gums checked and any remedial treatment carried out – scale and polish.

The frequency of these appointments will be advised by your dentist, but it is usually every 3 or 6 months.

What Happens When You See Your Hygienist? 

First of all, we would take a plaque and bleeding score which measures how much plaque and bleeding you have in your mouth. From this we can tell where there are areas that need to be improved.

After this, we would use a ‘pocket’ chart to measure any more gum disease (if applicable). We then take future pocket charts at each appointment, which would hopefully ensure that the gum disease is stabilising.

Following this, we remove all the hard and soft plaque from your teeth.  The hardened up plaque is called calculus and is impossible for you to remove at home, so we would remove this with our hand scalers and ultra-sonic scalers. 

By removing this, any inflammation that you may have in your gums would hopefully settle down and the gum disease would stabilise. 

After this we would polish with an air polisher. It’s really good because it gets right in-between the teeth, unlike a normal polish.

Finally, we would go over some oral hygiene information.  This might just be tooth brushing/electric tooth brushing, which we can do in the practice, flossing, inter dental brushes… this is all tailored to your individual needs.

Our aim is to get your gums looking healthy and get you feeling better about yourself.

Tips For Looking After Your Teeth During Pregnancy

Gum Problems

Most people can prevent gum disease with good oral hygiene. Things you can do to improve your oral hygiene and prevent gum disease:

  • Brush your teeth regularly and effectively
  • Have a plan of when you will brush your teeth
  • Use an ordinary toothbrush or a rechargeable powered toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
  • Stop smoking – stopping smoking reduces your chance of getting gum disease
  • Clean between your teeth using floss or inter-dental brushes
  • If you have diabetes, your dentist will recommend that you ensure it is well-controlled, as uncontrolled diabetes increases your risk of developing gum disease.

Well what can I say! Huge thank you to Ali, Leigh and the team for transforming my smile! Over the years my previously straight teeth had shifted to a point where I was no longer happy with them. I cannot recommend them enough. From beginning to end the experience was professional, comfortable and pain free. I’m a bit of a perfectionist but I think Ali surpasses me on this front. He has meticulous attention to detail which is exactly what I look for in a dentist. Thanks for giving me my smile back!

I was very reticent about placing my trust in a dentist again having moved back to Scotland from down South. The initial consultation with Leigh was very reassuring and the dentist Niall Henderson is truly excellent. A very calming individual with great skills of communication and a friendly, relaxed approach. I’ve had a tooth removed and it was effortless and pain free!. All the staff are excellent and friendly.The hygienist Laura Gillespie also comes highly recommended - thorough but careful and considerate in her approach.I would fully recommend this dentist to anyone and glad I found it!😀😀

So glad I chose Dentistry @no3 !When I went for my consultation I was not sure if it would be possible to have work done on my front teeth as they were that bad.I am absolutely amazed at the difference,and looking at the before and after photos, I also agree that Ali is indeed a genius.His lovely manner,the informative way he discussed my treatment during appointments. Totally pain free ! The confidence it has given me also.I cannot thank everyone enough for being so welcoming the minute you walk through the door.I will definitely be recommending this surgery to all my family and friends.

I have always been terrified/anxious going to the dentist. I grind my teeth and have asked my dentist on numerous occasions if there was anything that could be done only to be told I would need gum surgery. That was a definite no from me. I heard about Dentistry @ No 3 and thought I would go along for a chat, never actually thinking I would go ahead with any treatment. I got so excited about what I was told, especially the pain free part that I thought yeah I can do this.Well, Ali and his Team are amazing. I actually think he is a genius 🙂 I was made to feel so relaxed and was informed of everything that was going on. When I saw my new teeth I was so emotional and cannot stop smiling. I cannot recommend this lovely bunch highly enough. Very friendly, professional and defo pain free. Wish I had done it sooner. Thanks so much Ali.

I would recommend dentistry at no 3 to anyone looking for a practice which is professional, friendly and amazing at what they do. Rebecca made me feel at ease and took the time to explain everything to me that my treatment would involve. Love the outcome of my treatment and I’m also glad to say it was pain free 😬, thanks again xxx

I have always had a fear of the dentist until I recently came to dentistry @ no 3 and I met rebecca. I had to get some quite invasive treatment which was surprisingly all pain free. Rebecca and her assistant made me feel so relaxed and explained everything she was doing. I never thought I would find myself looking forward to going to the dentist. Anyone who is frightened or apprehensive should definitely visit Rebecca at Dentistry @ No 3.

I had just moved over from Canada and needed dental work. Rebecca treated my cavities and it was the most painless procedure I’ve ever had done! She used specialized needles and I mean it when I say I felt nothing! Rebecca and her staff gave me a very warm welcome to Scotland! Can not recommend enough, especially if you have a fear of the dentist like I do! Will definitely be going back!
