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.
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.
