Oral Health Education

The Importance of Good Oral Health

Oral health is central to our general wellbeing. Alpha House Dental Practice can now offer appointments, on referral from a dentist, with our trained and accredited Oral Health Educators. They can teach patients about diseases and conditions that affect the oral cavity including prevention, treatment and management. Topics covered include:

  • Plaque, calculus and staining
  • Caries prevention
  • Management of gingivitis and gum disease
  • Tooth surface loss and sensitivity
  • Fluoride
  • Anti- plaque agents
  • Nutrition and Diet advice
  • Smoking cessation
  • Oral health and medical conditions
  • Oral health and pregnancy

 Who can benefit?

Oral health education is a great tool for everyone. Learning how to take care of our mouths between dental visits is the best possible way of preventing problems and avoiding treatment.

People that may particularly benefit from our Oral Health Appointments are;

  • Parents and guardians of pre-11 year-olds
  • Adolescent and orthodontic patients
  • Pregnant patients
  • Patients with ongoing gingivitis or gum disease
  • Patients at risk of oral health conditions due to medical problems
  • Older patients

My first contact with Mr Hussain's surgery was following the complete failure of another dentist to satisfactorily deal with a number of complex dental problems. Not only did Mr Hussain resolve these problems, using advanced technology combined with top notch dental skills in a calm and comfortable setting, but the entire team at the surgery are caring, friendly and charming.

The practice offers a comprehensive list of general, restorative and advanced dental services to meet the needs of entire families.
