Ignoring the importance of dental hygiene can lead to a whole host of oral health issues including:
Some of the oral health issues listed above can even lead to further overall health issues – gum disease has even been linked to heart disease, for example.
Good dental hygiene starts at home with brushing your teeth for two minutes twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste, and regularly flossing. However, visits to a dental hygienist are also very important when it comes to preventing further oral health issues such as gum disease.
Our highly trained and skilled team of hygienists are professionals in spotting, and preventing gum disease (also known as gingivitis, or in advanced stages, periodontitis). We recommend twice annual dental hygiene visits to all our patients, which will not only leave your oral health better protected, but leave your teeth and smile looking and feeling great.
Most routine dental hygiene appointments will first include a professional clean from our professional hygienists. During this, we’ll be able to remove any build-up of plaque and tartar that could potentially go on to cause serious issues if left untreated. Then, we’ll polish up the teeth so that they look and feel refreshed and revitalised.
We can also help you develop a bespoke at-home care plan, so that you can be sure you’re doing everything you can to keep your teeth and oral wellbeing in tip-top condition.
