We understand how important your smile is and the effect a brighter, whiter smile can have on your life.
Two of the main issues that a hygienist addresses are tooth decay and gum disease. Despite them being relatively easy to manage through good oral hygiene, they are two of the leading causes of tooth loss. Addressing these issues consistently, and coming up with a maintenance plan, can provide good oral health into your later life.
Teeth are constantly exposed to a build-up of materials throughout the day. This build-up forms on the teeth as plaque, a substance which not only harbours bacteria, but also produces acid which can erode the teeth’s outer enamel layer.
The bacteria in your mouth is not a risk to your teeth when it is kept at low levels,but not brushing and flossing your teeth regularly means these levels can become damaging. There is also a link between increased oral bacteria and other serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Maintaining your oral health will help to look after your teeth, but over time build up of plaque and tartar can occur in those hard to reach areas. Our hygienist will remove this build up and focus on identifying and treating any gum disease. This preventative care could save your teeth later in life.
