Dental Hygiene is a vital part of being healthy. Beyond getting white and healthy-looking teeth, having good dental hygiene can impact the whole of your body. At London City Smiles, we offer a Dental Hygiene treatment to keep your teeth looking great, your breath fresh and your body healthy!
Great looking teeth don’t come from just anywhere; it takes an extensive oral routine to keep them looking white and healthy. However, having poor dental hygiene can affect more than your pearly whites. Bad breath, gum disease and tooth loss can all result from not keeping on top of your dental routine. If these symptoms develop too far, your speech and eating action can be affected, resulting in social and digestive problems.
Dental Hygiene treatment involves extensive cleaning of your teeth and gums. This will help to remove plaque and give you a renewed foundation to work from. Our oral hygiene specialists will also help you understand what causes poor oral health and what it takes to maintain a healthy mouth. We believe the treatment itself and the advisory tips will best help you to maintain positive oral health, plus it will make your mouth feel great!
We will invite you to a Dental Hygiene appointment if we feel that you need additional help with your oral health routine. Our treatment will begin with a physical examination of your whole mouth, which helps to identify the main areas that need treating. At this stage, we will also make a record of the condition of your teeth to be used as a reference for any future treatment. Once this is done, we will extensively clean your whole mouth.
The dental clean begins by removing plaque and/or tartar from the surface of your teeth. This is usually conducted with a handheld scaler which we use to scrape any affected areas. We then use an electric dental brush and a dental paste to clear any further bacteria from your teeth. Finally, a fluoride solution is used to wash away any minuscule debris and provide you with a protectant to help fight against cavities after your hygiene appointment. Following your Dental Hygiene treatment, we will also provide you with the information to know what causes bad dental health and the best ways to prevent it.
Poor dental hygiene can affect the health of your entire body, leading to the following issues:
- Mouth ulcers and sores
- Chronic bad breath
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum disease
- Poor digestion
- Swelling of the face, jaw and cheek
- Tooth decay
- Speech problems
Dental Hygiene treatment is an effective way of improving your oral health and learning of the best ways to practice a good oral routine. This kind of treatment is necessary for those with poor oral health, but it can also be good for patients that want to get a dentist-clean feeling!
