Our hygienists help patients to maintain high levels of oral health. Regular visits to a hygienist will help to ensure that your teeth and gums stay clean and healthy, as the hygienist will remove the build-up of plaque, which may otherwise lead to gum disease.
Tooth decay and gum disease are the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults, which emphasises the importance of maintaining a good oral hygiene routine. If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to sore, swollen and bleeding gums, not to mention bad breath. Your overall health is also affected by your oral health, with gum disease being linked to heart disease, strokes and diabetes.
Our hygienists will be able to advise you on the most effective teeth cleaning methods to practice at home, in between trips to having your teeth cleaned professionally. Keeping your mouth clean and healthy will not only improve your appearance, but it will also ensure that your breath stays fresh and most importantly, will help to ward off a number of health conditions.
Your dentist will advise you as to how often you should make an appointment with our hygienist, for further information feel free to contact our dental practice on 01202 746557.
