with oral hygiene at Meon Dental Practice Petersfield

Oral health and hygiene are key at Meon Dental in Petersfield

A visit to the hygienist at our Petersfield dental practice Meon Dental isn’t just about getting your teeth cleaned!  It’s a fantastic opportunity to confirm with a dental professional that the cleaning and hygiene regime you are following at home is being as effective as it should be, and also iron out any problems you may be having with flossing or such like.

Missing hygiene visits can lead to periodontal disease (gum disease) where your gums bleed and recede, leading to tooth loss. Not to mention bad breath!

The hygienists at our friendly family practice in Petersfield are also here to help you through the minefield of home dental health products available today.  If you’re struggling with flossing they’ll show you the easiest method or direct you towards another inter-dental product which may be easier for you to use.  They also often have sample product they can give, so you can see if they are for you before purchasing them.
