Dental health is important – not only do patients with strong, healthy teeth and gums experience fewer problems but they will have less chance of pain in the future. By working together we will help you look more attractive, smile with confidence, have fresher breath and enjoy good general health and well-being.
It is vital to your oral health that you visit your dentist and hygienist regularly and our tried and tested approach will help manage gum disease, keep your teeth healthy, prevent and manage gum disease, and leave you with fresher breath and a smile of which you can be proud.
Hygiene therapy may also reduce the risk of developing serious medical conditions, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, premature births and low birth-weight babies. A staggering 90% of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily-controlled.
As well as a thorough examination, your regular dental and hygiene appointments also include a screening for mouth cancer for added peace of mind. During your hygiene appointments we allow plenty of time to undertake a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums, and help you to fine tune your home-care technique for that clean feeling every day!
Here are 4 excellent reasons why you should see the dental hygienist regularly:
1. We now know that the health of your mouth and in particular the health of your gums may have a significant influence on your long term general health for example people who have gum disease have a higher risk of developing heart disease and possibly diabetes.
2. You may have gum disease and not be aware of it as there are not always any symptoms. Seeing the hygienist is vital as gum disease is entirely treatable.
3. Of course a hygiene visit will improve the appearance of your teeth by removing unsightly stains and can help prevent bad breath.
4. From experience we see that patients who see a hygienist regularly require a lot less dental treatment saving you money in the long term!
After just one session with our hygiene team you will feel and see a real difference in your teeth.
So, if you’re a little overdue for your hygiene visit, or maybe you currently attend a practice which does not have a hygienist, please call us to arrange an appointment on 01782 205003.
