Good daily oral hygiene is key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. We also strongly recommend visiting our dental hygienist for professional teeth cleaning at least every six months.
Your hygienist will be able to give you all the necessary guidance on how to keep your smile healthy, including dietary advice to help minimise tooth decay.
During your appointment we will remove any plaque, check your gums and give your teeth a good polish, leaving them clean and shiny.
The ideal time between appointments is three months as this enables us to best monitor your teeth and gums, so giving you maximum dental care.
In between visits to the hygienist we advise brushing your teeth at least twice daily and flossing after meals to keep your mouth healthy.
Preventing tooth decay and gum disease: Good oral hygiene practices like regular brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which can cause pain, tooth loss, and even systemic infections.
Improving digestion: Chewing your food thoroughly is an important part of the digestive process, and having healthy teeth and gums can help you do this more effectively.
Reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke: Research has shown that poor oral health can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. By maintaining good oral hygiene, you may be able to reduce your risk of these conditions.
Boosting self-confidence: A healthy and attractive smile can boost your self-confidence and make you feel better about yourself.
Saving money: By preventing tooth decay and gum disease, you may be able to avoid costly and painful dental procedures like fillings, root canals, and extractions.
Overall, good oral health is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being, and can have a positive impact on many different areas of your life.
We regard dental hygiene appointments as an essential service.
Our hygienist can remove the plaque and tartar which cannot be tackled at home, thus preventing the onset of gingivitis and gum disease.
Our cleaning service is highly effective and involves the use of ultrasonic hand instruments and polishing.
We can also advise you on the latest cleaning techniques and equipment available for you to use as part of your daily routine at home.
Gingivitis and Periodontitis
When plaque and tartar are not removed effectively the gums will become irritated and this can lead to inflammation (gingivitis). A common sign of this is bleeding during brushing and flossing.
Gingivitis is very common but is also easy to treat. If it is not treated it can often result in a more severe form of the disease known as periodontitis (gum disease). If periodontitis is not treated, it can eventually involve bone loss.
Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK and for this reason it is very important to maintain healthy gums.
"Best dentist I've ever been to. My gums were hurting and bleeding so I booked a hygienist appointment. Dr. Andrew explained to me the problem and said not to worry, it's fixable.
Both him and his nurse were kind and gentle and made me feel very comfortable. My previous experience with dental appointments in other practices was scary and they always made me feel bad about my teeth but Kew Road Dental were completely different.
I'm grateful for their kindness and I plan on coming here moving forward."
