Dental Hygiene & Gum Treatment

The important role of the dental hygienist/ hygiene clinician

Preventive care, helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy, is at the heart of our practice philosophy. With this in mind, we recommend regular appointments with our hygienist/hygiene clinician.

The main role good hygiene plays is in helping you maintain a healthy mouth, avoiding problems such as decay and gum disease (the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults).

Gum disease – don’t let it go unnoticed

Gum disease often goes unnoticed because it is generally painless, but over time it can cause lasting damage. With a good oral healthcare routine and regular visits to the hygienist its progress can be significantly slowed down or even stopped.

Get your teeth professionally cleaned

During your visit your teeth will be cleaned professionally, removing any plaque (a constantly-forming layer of sticky bacteria which causes gum disease) and your teeth will be left fresh and clean.

Good oral hygiene

A good oral hygiene routine is fundamental to dental health and essential for fresh breath. The hygienist can advise you on the best way to care for your teeth and gums, including an effective daily cleaning routine and following a healthy diet.
