Hygiene visits are the most cancelled appointments in the majority of dental practices. However, it may be surprising that gum disease, not tooth decay, is the leading cause of tooth loss.
The links between gum disease, heart disease and premature births are often not understood by the patient. This is because they are not sufficiently explained by the dental team.
Please ask if you have any concerns regarding these issues, or if you have any concerns about the health of your gums. We will ensure you are informed and that you have the opportunity to discuss your concerns.
Hygiene visits enable us to remove harmful plaque and tartar from every surface of every tooth, as brushing alone cannot do this effectively. Hygiene visits are not just cleaning teeth, although cleaning is a benefit of the treatment. Its purpose is to lengthen the life span of your teeth and to promote all round good health.
