Dental hygiene encompasses everything from brushing and flossing your teeth at home, to visits with our highly trained and knowledgeable dental hygienist team here at Bank Chambers Dental Practice. Both aspects are equally important in helping to keep gum disease away and tooth decay at bay, and we encourage all our patients to develop a good at-home care routine and to visit our dental hygienists twice a year.
Gum disease is one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in Europe and the leading cause of tooth loss. It covers a range of issues that can affect the gums and other support structures of the teeth, including gingivitis and periodontitis.
Some of the most commonly experienced symptoms include:
While there are often several contributing factors when it comes to the occurrence of gum disease, good oral hygiene routines at home, as well as regular dental hygiene appointments can prevent or slow it down.
A dental hygienist appointment at Bank Chambers Dental Practice will include a thorough cleaning of the teeth. This is more comprehensive and effective than the simple teeth cleaning you can achieve at home and can help remove plaque build-up, as well as surface staining to the teeth. Teeth will be left looking brighter and shinier, as well as feeling smooth and fresh.
Our hygienists at Bank chambers Dental Practice will also be able to help develop a treatment plan that’s built around you. They can tailor an at-home care routine that fits into your lifestyle while also addressing your oral health needs, and promoting your overall oral wellbeing.
