Effective oral hygiene promotes good health, wellbeing and an impressive smile! LS1 provides a range of services to ensure you and your teeth stay in great shape.
Regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home, will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath! The LS1 team will help you by giving you tips and advice on good oral hygiene routines at home, techniques on tooth brushing and flossing and recommend any products that you may need.
Alongside our core dentistry services, our main aim at LS1 Dental is to promote high quality oral hygiene. We suggest that patients visit us to have their teeth professionally cleaned every six months, and some patients prefer to come every three. Using the latest dental technology, we carry out a thorough deep clean, polish and removal of any hardened plaque or tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach with routine tooth brushing. If plaque is left on the surface of your teeth it can lead to dental cavities going undetected, gum issues and sometimes even foul-smelling breath.
Are you concerned that your teeth might be stained or discoloured from tea, coffee, red wine, or dark foods and that your smile is letting you down? Try our Prophyflex treatment!
Prophyflex is an air polishing system for the removal of stains, bacterial plaque and cleaning of enamel surfaces, prior to fissure sealing. This removes unsightly imperfections and returns your smile back to full health! LS1 patients love this treatment and cannot believe the difference it makes.

Periodontal (gum) disease
If you have been told or think you may have gum disease, you’re not alone. Many adults can have some form of the disease, and some will have no symptoms. Periodontal issues range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that can result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth can be lost. At LS1 Dental, we offer tips and advice on managing and controlling periodontal disease.
Common signs of gum disease can include:
- Bad breath
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender or bleeding gums
- Pain when chewing
- Loose/ mobile teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Receding gums or teeth appearing longer
Any of these symptoms may be a sign of a serious problem, which should be checked. Call the LS1 Dental Leeds team today for immediate help and advice on your treatment options.
