Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygiene

Maintaining Your Smile

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.

I have been to many dentists over the years and No3 has to be the best to date. Dr Alisdair is truly amazing and has transformed my smile. He has given me a natural look and the whole process was comfortable and completely pain free. Everyone at the practice is so friendly and warm. I have no doubt that I will continue using this practice for many years to come.

My husband had extensive treatment and was very happy with the service provided by Alisdair. It was, as is claimed by them, virtually pain free and as a result I decided to have some cosmetic work done. I have attended NHS practices all my life and have always been quite anxious, more so as I get older. My appointments at No. 3 have been a totally different experience. Any procedures are fully explained with help of photographs taken and shown on a screen. There was no pressure to have work done, the final decision was mine. Alisdair made me feel very much at ease and has totally transformed the appearance of my teeth. I no longer feel embarrassed at their appearance. As a thank you for choosing them, they are also contributing towards several good causes from helping children with dental hygiene and malnutrition to assisting families following natural disasters. I am now a patient at Dentistry @ No. 3.

Exceptional service all round: from being welcomed by the kind and courteous reception staff, the pleasant waiting room and being treated by Dr. Masterson (Rebecca), who was great and made me feel at ease. I will definitely be recommending Dentistry @ No 3 for others looking for pain free dentistry.

I can’t thank Ali and the whole practice at Dentistry at No 3 enough. I have been extremely unhappy with my smile for as long as I can remember and it has really affected my confidence and daily life. I am really glad I choose this practice to fix my smile and I am extremely happy with the results. The treatment was totally pain free and everyone was very helpful. Any worries I had they were there and any reassurance I needed was given. I highly recommend Dentistry at No 3. Thanks guys for helping me on this journey.

Alisdair and the team provide a fantastic service. They're knowledge and interpersonal skills are great, and information about procedures are communicated clearly and in detail, in a user friendly way.The techniques are absolutely pain free and as a patient I always feel valued, respected and that the team are totally focussed on ensuring I have a five star, anxiety free experience. They provide top quality dentistry in a relaxed person centred atmosphere.The premises are spotlessly clean, bright and modern and you're welcomed warmly from the moment you meet Barbara on reception.The equipment and techniques are also clearly current and evidence led, and Alisdair talks clearly and passionately about ongoing learning and development. Special mention also to Laura who is the gentlest and most thorough dental therapist I've ever experienced.I can't recommend Dentistry @ No 3 highly enough

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!

I am one of those people who have been terrified of the dentist since childhood, even to the point of deliberately missing appointments!No longer! I have been going to dentistry at number 3 for 6 years without any problem. Absolutely first rate personnel who provide pain free treatment as promised.

Having attended the same dentist for 40 years I was rather apprehensive when a new team took over the practice but my fears have been allayed and my recent experiences at the surgery have been very good.Everyone is friendly and caring and my treatment pain free. Thanks to everyone involved.

I've been a patient for many years, and my experience has always been very good here. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming, and the practice is very modern and well-equipped. Alasdair is a very considerate and careful dentist and has always ensured pain free treatment, even during my more serious appointments! No-one genuinely enjoys a trip to the dentist, but here it really is as pain and stress-free as it gets.
