Protecting your smile

The best way to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile is with effective oral hygiene. We recommend regular visits to our dental hygienist for professional cleaning, checking, advice and support, as well as a daily routine of brushing and flossing at home.

The advantages of regular dental hygiene appointments

Regular hygiene visits will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. Other advantages include:

Dental hygiene FAQs

A professional scale and polish can remove built up plaque from areas you can’t reach with a toothbrush.

It can also provide a high level of cleaning that will be able to remove some minor staining from your teeth and improve bad breath.

As well as spotting problems such as tooth decay or gingivitis, your dental hygienist will also be well-placed to notice abnormalities that might be a sign of oral cancer.

Hygiene visits can also protect you from developing periodontal (gum) disease, which can sometimes lead to heart disease.

Interdental brushes and dental floss are easy to use, and can reach into areas you can’t reach with your usual toothbrush. Ask your hygienist for advice on how to use them for maximum effect.

It’s never too late to get on top of your oral health and protect your teeth for the future. Brushing your teeth regularly and visiting your hygienist are the perfect way to start.

What our patients say


"I went to Stuart for a full set of dentures. Right from the start he was great – really friendly and approachable. I was petrified beforehand but he made me feel really at ease. The whole environment was really relaxed and unstuffy. I felt confident to put my trust in him. I lost my teeth when I was 23 and I’m 47 now. It’s the best set I’ve ever had. No-one could tell I’d got false teeth. I love what he’s done for me."


"I had almost a full dental reconstruction. The treatment was professional. Stuart listened to what I wanted, always worked with me, and included me in the decision making. He was contactable throughout, and very personable. I felt like I was a friend rather than a client. An excellent experience all-round.”


"I found Stuart to be dedicated and professional with high standards and only dealing in quality products. He was present every step of the way, from conception to the finished job, and gave me excellent and easy to understand advice in a relaxed and unhurried manner. My Implant was fitted with surgical standards in a bright, clean, relaxed and warm environment. The implant was well matched to the rest of my teeth and looks totally natural. The aftercare service was also first class. I can recommend Stuart’s services without hesitation.”


"Stuart is a friendly, honest, hardworking guy who takes pride in his work and keeps the client’s wishes at the heart of his treatments. He goes above and beyond in order to meet his clients expectations and he does it all with the minimum of fuss."

Patient satisfaction is very important to us

From the moment I spoke on the phone one hour after breaking my front tooth on a Fox Crunchie Nut cookie I cannot praise the Terrace highly enough. Stuart, Soumane Laura , Meg and Alice were superb professional empathetic practitioners. They went out of their way to rearrange appointments to fit in with my urgent schedule. The treatment I received over 4 weeks has given me back the smile I had always hidden .Compassion ,kindness , and a good sense of humour nursed me through what had for most of my life been a nightmare ( thank you School Dentists!!) . A great happy team, ( largely) painfree! treatment - you cannot ask more. Thank you Terrace . My highest recommendations to you all! Have a good summer .kind regards John Hyde

The whole team are amazing. I'm a nervous patient who is a first time denture wearer . Stuart and team have put me at ease from day one . The dental nurse Laura was so reassuring and kind throughout my treatments. I'm really happy with my partial denture, really can't tell I'm wearing one. Highly recommend and thankyou .

Stuart, Nick and their team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Not only are they top professionals, they are incredibly supportive, helpful and friendly. For anybody who is experiencing dental health problems, especially when dentures are involved, I don't think that you'll find better, I would definitely recommend them.
