Dental hygiene is essential for your overall health
If you are not regularly seeing a dental hygienist, your gums will not be as healthy as they should be and you will have a build-up of plaque (soft deposits) and tartar (hard deposits) on your teeth.
Daily bacterial removal at the gum level and in between teeth stops bacteria growing in enough numbers to cause bone loss.
A hygienist is a specialist in removing these deposits, maintaining healthy gums and teaching you to maintain a good standard of dental health. So it is important to visit a hygienist on a regular basis.
Treatment and Management
The type of treatment you require is individually tailored to your particular case and how advanced the disease.Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling is removing the calculus from your teeth. Root planing is smoothing the root surfaces so that gum tissue can reattach back on the tooth.
When the above treatments don't resolve the diseased areas, we go under the gum level with a Microscope enabling us to see and remove any defects or deposits that are stopping healing - previously surgery was our only option.
Bacteria constantly grows, we can never stop it completely, so regular maintenance is imperative for good oral and systemic health.
