Benefits of Regular Dental Hygiene Visits

Regular visits to your hygienist will help identify any potential oral health issues at an early stage before they result in discomfort or require potentially costly treatment.

Removal of plaque and tartar build-up helps prevent the release of acids that are harmful to your teeth and gums. Brushing alone is inadequate in removing the build-up of dental plaque and tartar. Within approximately 72 hours any unremoved plaque will harden into tartar, which cannot be removed with a toothbrush but can be effectively tackled by your hygienist.

Protection Against Gum Disease

NHS data suggests that 50% of those over the age of 35 suffer from some degree of gum disease. Gum disease is reversible in its early stages, however, left unchecked it can progress and ultimately lead to pain, bad breath and tooth loss. Your hygienist can help safeguard your gums by removing harmful bacteria from below the gum line.

Elimination of Stubborn Stains

Certain foods, drinks and medications, as well as smoking, can result in stained teeth. These stains can be removed using the AIR-FLOW system, a combination of water, compressed air and fine powder particles that quickly and comfortably cleans and polishes teeth, even those areas that are difficult to access. This fast, comfortable method of teeth cleaning is suitable for most patients, including those with sensitive teeth, implants, bridges, veneers and crowns.

Dental Care Education

Most people brush their teeth but many do not do so correctly. Your hygienist can teach you the correct cleaning technique, as well as the type of brush and dental floss you should use for optimum dental care at home.

Supporting Sweet Smelling Breath

Bacteria hiding below the gum line is a common cause of bad breath. Toothbrushes cannot reach below the gum line but your dental hygienist is fully equipped to remove harmful bacteria and help keep your breath smelling sweet.

Detection of Oral Cancer

Your hygienist is able to detect the early signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer is highly curable if treated early. Your hygienist will offer you advice on the risk factors of oral cancer and how you can reduce them. You will be more at risk if you are a smoker, drink excessive amounts of alcohol or are infected with the HPV virus.

Confidence Boosting

Knowing your mouth is fresh, clean and healthy gives you the confidence that comes from knowing that your smile is bright and sparkling.

Airpolish

This is a simple treatment that is much-loved by many of our patients. Straight-forward and refreshing airflow polishing is a hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the front and back of teeth. The procedure works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco and some mouthwashes.

You can just come in and have this treatment done – we’d love to see you for a clean and polish before a big event or just to help you look and feel great.
