The best way to treat gum disease is to remove the cause – the plaque and tartar. Our hygienist services use a thorough clean to help prevent bacteria from affecting the surrounding gums.
Basic hygiene treatments included Scale & Polish, Air polish and more in depth periodontal management.
Scale & Polish
A ‘scale & polish’ is a deep clean that removes the build-up of plaque and tartar. This helps prevent gum disease as well as leaving your teeth feeling smooth and looking shiny.
Hygienists look for any signs of other conditions, such as oral cancer. They will also help you care for your teeth at home by demonstrating teeth cleaning techniques and offering dietary tips.
As well as ensuring the continued health of your teeth and gums, good dental hygiene can contribute to your overall well-being as poor gum health has been associated with serious conditions, such as heart disease and strokes.
