Participating in Halloween and “Trick or Treating” has become a part of the norm for most children now and it seems that the supermarkets are full of special packs of sweeties exactly for you to use when they come a calling!
There are lots of techniques when it comes to tooth brushing, and really it is not one rule fits all. Some techniques work better than others for you. Your Dental Hygienist will help you with a plan that is personal to you, one that is straight forward and easy to follow.

At Barrington Dental Care in Altrincham, seeing a dental hygienist is an integral part of your dental care. Our dentists work with our dental hygienists to ensure you receive the best possible preventive care and if necessary interceptive treatment.
You may see a dental hygienist for:
- Gum treatment to treat gum disease otherwise known as periodontal disease
- Prevention of gum disease – oral hygiene education
- Prevention of tooth decay – perhaps fluoride treatments or fissure sealants
Everyone is different and our dental hygiene team understand this and so they will provide personalised preventive plans for each and every patient.

Gum disease and tooth decay affect the biting surfaces and those in between your teeth due to the nature of the anatomy.
