The foundation of a great smile is, of course, strong and healthy teeth and gums, and regular visits to our practice are vital to achieve and maintain a good level of oral health.
Our hygienists play a key role in this. During your hygiene appointment, they remove plaque – a sticky layer of bacteria which is constantly forming on your teeth, and which can lead to gum disease.
Gum disease is very common. Early symptoms include sore, swollen or bleeding gums and bad breath, and if left untreated can eventually lead to tooth loss.
Our hygienists will also advise on the best way to care for your teeth and gums at home.
Regular visits to the dentist are also important, so we can keep a close eye on what is happening in your mouth and treat any potential problems at an early stage.
