What our clients say about us

“Friendly, professional staff. From the smile on entering I was put at ease and all treatment was explained. I was a nervous patient, but the calm atmosphere helped enormously that I am now happy to go every six months for my check ups and hygiene visit. I have recommended the practice to my all my friends”

Dental Hygiene

At Townley House Dental Practice, we know that a healthy smile is the ultimate accessory, and maintaining optimal dental hygiene is key to achieving and preserving it. We believe in empowering our patients to take control of their dental health beyond their visits to our clinic. In addition to our advanced techniques and treatments, there are many things you can do at home to preserve your dental hygiene.

Daily brushing and flossing

It may sound obvious, but we cannot emphasise enough that brushing and flossing are the most important for the health of your teeth. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is essential for removing plaque and bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Do not forget to brush for at least two minutes each time, covering all surfaces of your teeth and along the gumline. Flossing once a day helps remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach.

Mindful eating habits

What you eat can have a significant impact on your dental health. Limiting sugary and acidic foods and beverages can help prevent tooth decay and enamel erosion. Instead, opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and dairy products, which provide essential nutrients for strong and healthy teeth.

Regular dental check-ups

While practicing good dental hygiene at home is crucial, regular visits to your dentist in the Peterborough area are equally important. Dental check-ups allow us to monitor your oral health, detect any issues early on, and provide professional cleanings to remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup.

Professional cleanings at Townley House Dental Practice

Professional dental cleaning is a comprehensive procedure performed by our skilled dental hygienists to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gums. This deep cleaning process involves using specialised instruments to remove stubborn deposits that cannot be removed by regular brushing and flossing alone. These cleanings help to prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. What is more, they leave your teeth feeling smooth and polished, giving you that fresh-from-the-dentist clean feeling.

No pain, no gain? With us, you do not need to suffer

To ensure comfort during our procedures, we use Oraqix®, which is a local anaesthetic gel commonly used in dental procedures, to provide pain relief during non-surgical periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing. Unlike traditional injections, Oraqix® is applied topically and quickly numbs the gums within minutes, allowing for a comfortable and pain-free experience. Should you have needle phobia or seek a more gentle approach to dental care, its needle-free application and rapid onset make it an ideal option for you. Additionally, Oraqix® wears off quickly after the procedure, allowing you to resume your daily activities without lingering numbness.

We also use Dentomycin periodontal gel, which is commonly used in the treatment of periodontal disease, particularly in cases of localised gum infection or periodontal pockets. This gel contains the antibiotic agent minocycline, which is effective against the bacteria that contribute to gum disease. By directly applying Dentomycin gel into periodontal pockets, it can help reduce inflammation and infection, promoting gum healing and attachment to the teeth.

Personalised oral care plans – especially for you

At Townley House Dental Practice, we understand that everyone’s dental needs are unique. That’s why we take a personalised approach to oral care, tailoring our recommendations to suit your needs and goals. Our dental team at Oundle is committed to providing comprehensive guidance and support to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for years to come. From practicing regular brushing and flossing to maintaining a balanced diet and avoiding harmful habits like smoking, these everyday habits are important to prevent dental issues. A healthy mouth is not only key to a confident smile but also plays a crucial role in preventing systemic health issues such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It is essential to prioritise dental hygiene, and together we can create a personalised plan that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle and ensures your smile stays bright and healthy.
