DENTAL HYGIENE

ORAL HEALTH

Dental hygiene appointments are important to ensure oral health. Poor dental hygiene can cause:

  • Advanced gum disease (Periodontal disease) leading to tooth loss
  • Tooth decay
  • Bad breath
  • Discoloured and stained teeth
  • Secondary decay underneath crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays
  • Peri implantitis around dental implants

Good dental hygiene is the foundation for a healthy mouth and healthy body. After all, you would not dream of building a house on a poor foundation!

DENTAL HYGIENIST

Hygiene 1

Our Dental Hygienists, will remove the plaque from around your teeth. Plaque is a soft, sticky substance mostly made up of bacteria that builds up on your teeth. It feeds on sugar found in the food we eat, and sugary drinks. It produces an acid that attacks the teeth by dissolving minerals in the tooth surface resulting in tooth decay and gum inflammation.

 

Gum disease now also has links to:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Low birth weight in pregnancy
  • Respiratory disease
  • Diabetes

(see perio.org for further information)

There is also evidence that the microbes involved in gum disease can be passed onto family members via saliva.

 

The good news is that gum disease is preventable if treated early. Regular dental and hygiene appointments will minimise your risk and provide a fresh and clean mouth.

 

We use the latest technology when cleaning your mouth including ultrasonic equipment and jet air polishing for full stain removal and a sparkle finish.
