Dental hygiene is the practice of teeth-cleaning as done by a professional dental hygienist. Often referred to as scaling and polishing, a thorough cleaning of your teeth at regular intervals is a great way to maintaining overall good dental health.
Hygiene visits aid in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease (gum disease) and dental caries (tooth decay). The dental health of the mouth is maintained by regularly having teeth and gums cleaned during these visits. Gum disease can cause bleeding gums and bad breath which can be both unpleasant and embarrassing. The condition can also lead to the loss of teeth in its advanced stage.Part of the hygiene treatment includes advice on how to clean and look after the teeth and gums, as well as providing information and demonstrations on the many dental products available so as to
achieve and maintain good oral health. At Grange Farm Dental Practice, we place great emphasis on hygiene treatments. For patients with high tooth sensitivity hygiene cleaning may be uncomfortable, in such cases we can offer various treatments to make this procedure painless. Our dental hygienist will teach you oral care techniques that most effectively remove plaque -the primary cause of gum disease.
