Deep cleaning your teeth is a vital part of the hygiene care we offer, but it’s not all we do. Our experienced hygienists will also inspect your gums for any signs of periodontal disease as this can lead to tooth loss or even damage to your jawbone.
Dental hygiene can have a significant effect, not just on your mouth but on the rest of your body too, as poor gum health and periodontal disease have been linked to a number of diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Another potentially life-saving check carried out by our hygienists is looking for signs of mouth cancer; an increasingly prevalent disease that is so much easier to treat if caught early.
In addition, our knowledgeable hygienists offer all their patients useful dental health advice, and that includes the very youngest members of our practice so effective tooth care becomes a lifelong skill.
