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.

After a terrible experience elsewhere, I hadn’t been to the dentist for 10 years.Despite having to have a tooth removed, it was an entirely pain free experience. I felt very reassured throughout.I’d highly recommend this practice, my new, regular, dentists.

Just had my first appointment with Kirsty and Irene at No 3. I am a very nervous patient and in no way was I looking forward to my time with them. How wrong was I, never have I had the care and attention that this team gave me. The process was explained from start to finish I was asked all through the procedure if I was ok and all of this care continued to put me at my ease . The time with them was painless throughout and it was a joy to experience the skill and pride that Kirsty puts in to her profession with Irene working with her and keeping an eye on me all the time Kirsty was working on my teeth. This team were absolutely excellent cannot thank them enough for the assurance they gave me and have helped alleviate a fear I have of attending the dentist. When No 3 state they are a pain free dentist they practice what they preach . Thank you team Kirsty and Irene you really are first class

Can't rate Dr Ali high enough! I've always been conscious of my wonky shaped front teeth. I had composite bonding applied elsewhere but i wasnt happy with the general experience. They were far too big and I had to go back to have them filed down. They were also starting to stain around the edges slightly so I decided to save up for porcelain veneers which I'd always wanted. After researching I decided to go with Dentistry @ No 3 and am SO glad I did. MY biggest concern was that when i had my bonding done previously, there was zero communication between me and the Dr applying it so i was very unhappy with the final result. Dr Ali on the other hand was exceptional! He not only listened to exactly what my concerns were but he explained everything in detail. I have never felt more confident going in and felt truly involved in the entire experience from start to finish so there were no surprises . This was a big deal for me and really meant a lot. My new teeth are JUST what I hoped for and amazingly natural looking. Couldnt be happier! An added plus was that the entire procedure was also genuinely 100% pain free.The staff were also always an absolute pleasure to deal with. I think I can speak for most people when I say that visiting the dentist can be a little nerve wracking so when you're greeted by such lovely and friendly staff, it really helps to calm your nerves. Exceptional service all round!

I can’t recommend this practice enough, hands down the best Dentist I’ve ever visited! Alisdair made me feel confident about the treatment and relaxed, and I usually feel very anxious in the chair! Treatment was carried out meticulously and pain free! Everyone is friendly, professional and a offer great standard of care. Updated - visited Shereen & Irene today for a Hygiene appointment and I'm again really pleased with both the treatment and results. Shereen was excellent and gave great advice, and I loved the charity donation made on my behalf - booked my next appointment already 🙂

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!
