Dental Hygiene

A dental hygiene appointment has four main roles:

  • Removing calculus ( tartar) from teeth. This is done by a technique called scaling and polishing.

  • Treating gum disease (also known as ‘gingivitis’ or ‘periodontal disease’) – this is caused by plaque which is a sticky film of bacteria. If left untreated your gums will start to swell and bleed and will ultimately result in tooth loss. Tooth loss is not through age – it is because of gum disease.

  • Demonstrating, teaching and reminding you of good oral hygiene techniques – individually tailored to your circumstances.

  • Analysing your diet and offering advice to prevent decay.

There is now increasing evidence linking gum disease with heart disease and strokes. It is also the main reason for loss of teeth and we take the treatment of gum disease very seriously. To help look after your teeth, we have a good range of hygiene products available at reception.
