Hygiene Nottingham


Promoting Oral Health and Comfort

At The Dental Suite we are committed to promoting oral health and ensuring that our patients are happy and healthy. We offer a comprehensive range of general dental treatments and preventative and hygiene treatments and we cater for patients of all ages.

Our aim is to encourage good oral hygiene and ensure that all our clients feel relaxed and comfortable when they come to the clinic.


Prioritising Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is the cornerstone of good oral health and we actively encourage our patients to make use of dental hygiene services; seeing a dental hygienist on a regular basis will not only reduce your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease, it will also ensure that your teeth look radiant and clean.

Our highly trained, friendly dental hygienist, Rebecca, provides a host of services, including:

  • Oral health education
  • Advice about teeth cleaning and choosing oral hygiene products
  • Advice about diet and nutrition
  • Help with giving up smoking
  • Services, such as fissure sealant and fluoride varnish
  • Our hygienist also plays a very important role in the prevention, management and treatment of gum disease, the most common cause of adult tooth loss in the UK.

Oral health education and advice

We firmly believe that prevention is always better than cure and we are always on hand to offer advice about teeth cleaning and flossing. As well as explaining and demonstrating brushing techniques, Rebecca and the dentists can offer advice about choosing oral hygiene products, healthy eating and giving up smoking.


Preventative dental treatments

We offer preventative treatments, including fissure sealants, to reduce the risk of common dental health problems. The fissure sealant is applied to the biting surface of the molar teeth in children to strengthen and protect the tooth by preventing food debris and bacteria from getting trapped in the tiny crevices on the tooth.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is gingivitis?

This is the name given to inflammation of the Gingival Tissue (Gums) and occurs when bacterial plaque accumulates between the tooth and the gum. This is the first stage of gum disease and is reversible with treatment.

What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis is the name given to gum disease which has advanced to involve the periodontium. (the bone and ligament around each tooth). It is important to preserve the bone levels around your teeth in order to prevent your teeth from becoming loose.

There are many degrees of Periodontitis and the only way to diagnose the extent of the damage is with a periodontal examination. This is a simple and painless examination with a special instrument to check the bone level around each of your teeth.

At the Dental Suite we routinely carry out a gum examination to monitor your Periodontal Health. Should there be any problems, these are shown to you and explained in “simple English”. A treatment and maintenance plan is then devised to achieve optimum periodontal health. After all, your gums are the foundation for your teeth, your smile!

How can I prevent gum disease?

Thorough removal of bacterial plaque from the teeth and gums is paramount in the prevention of gum disease.

There are many recommended tooth brushing techniques and it can sometimes be a little confusing as to what we should do. It is important to remove bacterial plaque thoroughly without causing damage to the tooth enamel as this can cause sensitivity.

We advise against brushing with an up and down action and scrubbing from side to side as both of these techniques cause damage to the teeth and gums. Generally it is best to give tooth brushing advice on a one to one basis so that established habits can be reviewed and dexterity assessed.

We can also fissure seal your children’s teeth. This is a simple preventative procedure which covers the vulnerable chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) with a protective coating of resin (plastic) which in conjunction with dietary advice helps to prevent tooth decay.

I chose the Dental suite as they came highly recommended to me, I can definitely say that I was not disappointed. The treatment I received was 5 star. I had composite bonding and the result was amazing, I couldn’t be happier with my smile!

Brian Negus

I was referred to The Dental Suite, Loughborough, by my regular dentist for implant treatment to replace a bridge and a loose tooth supporting it. I have been impressed by the professional and friendly service provided and by the surgeon’s care in ensuring that I understand the process, benefits and potential risks of implant surgery. All aspects of the treatment so far have been exemplary!

Karina Foster

I was impressed with the whole service. I was able to get an appointment for a check up. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The checkup was very thorough. Follow up treatment with a hygienist was arranged promptly. I can’t fault any part of my experience.

Amazing dental practice. My son has been with them for the past 4 years, service and expertise are always exceptional. Thank you to Kiren and Claire for supporting my boy with his brace journey.

Jayne Woodcock

I have undergone bone grafting and dental implant surgery over the last 10 months. Adam and the Dental Suite teams at Leicester and Loughborough have been exceptional in their care and are a credit to their profession. They have been responsive to all concerns raised and have gone over and above to support me through some tough times.

Susan McKenna

I have been attending The Dental suite for the past 2-3 years and have had fillings replaced, root canal work and also recently a large molar extracted. I am very nervous of dental work hence the vast amount of work needed when I changed dentists; however I have been able to manage all my dental work due to the expert care I have received with comprehensive explanations . Thank you and would recommend
