Keep Your Mouth Happy with Hygiene Therapy

dental-treatmentWe offer an array of general and preventative dental services to promote good oral health, as well as cosmetic dentistry, orthodontic services and restorative treatment. Your health is extremely important to us and we recommend regular dental check-ups and sessions with our excellent hygienists.

What are the benefits of seeing a hygienist?

There are so many advantages of adding a hygiene session into your oral health routine. Hygienists are trained to provide dental hygiene treatments, oral health advice and treatment for oral health diseases, such as gum disease, so they really can make a difference to your oral health. Patients who have a high risk of gum disease, those who have active signs of gum disease and those who suffer from issues such as bad breath are often advised to see a dental hygienist on a regular basis.

Hygienists provide cleaning treatments that are much more powerful than brushing at home. They remove bacteria, break up food debris and cleanse the gums, to reduce the risk of gum disease and cavities and tackle plaque and tartar.

I’ve got healthy teeth and gums: do I still need to see a hygienist?

Even if you have strong, healthy teeth and no signs of decay or gum disease, seeing a hygienist is still hugely beneficial and it will help to ensure that you continue to enjoy good oral health. As well as removing any harmful traces of bacteria from your mouth, seeing a hygienist for a cleaning treatment can also help to make your teeth look brighter and whiter and remove surface stains. Your teeth will also feel lovely and smooth and you get a wonderful fresh feeling, which you can’t achieve when you brush at home.

Why is oral health so important?

Oral health is sometimes moved down the list when it comes to health priorities and many patients admit to skipping dental appointments. But we are eager to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health and encourage our patients to stick to regular check-ups and take good care of their teeth and gums at home. Studies have shown that oral health problems are linked to an increased risk of general health problems and brushing the teeth and seeing your dentist on a regular basis can help to cut your risk of developing serious, life-threatening illnesses, including heart disease and strokes.

The Ultimate Teeth Cleaning Treatment

Nothing feels better than smooth, clean teeth and what better way to start the summer months than with a clean bill of oral health? We encourage our patients to maintain good oral hygiene at home, but nothing beats the feeling of an intensive cleaning treatment. Our expert hygienists will give your smile a healthy glow and banish harmful bacteria to help you lower the risk of decay and gum disease.

What do hygienists do?

Dental hygienists are experts in oral hygiene. They provide a range of hygiene and preventative treatments that help to lower the risk of oral diseases and keep the teeth looking strong, healthy and shiny.

Our dental hygienists play a very important role in the treatment of gum disease, but a visit to the hygienist can be beneficial for all patients, even those with good oral health. For patients who have a high risk of gum disease and those who have been diagnosed with severe gum disease, regular hygiene sessions can help to prevent the condition from getting worse.

Hygiene treatments

Our hygienists provide a range of services for patients of all ages, including preventative treatments, cleaning treatments such as scale and polish and gum disease management. Our hygienists are also available to offer advice about oral hygiene and teeth cleaning and to help with issues such as healthy eating and giving up or cutting down smoking.

Why is dental hygiene so important?

Good dental hygiene is important for keeping your teeth and gums healthy, but it also plays a role in maintaining good general health. A number of studies have now suggested a connection between oral and general health and gum disease has been found to increase the risk of general health conditions, including strokes and heart disease, as bacteria from the mouth is able to travel through the bloodstream, contributing to harmful effects in other areas of the body.
