Seeing the hygienist is all about reducing the level of bacteria accumulating in your mouth. Even with the best tooth brushing technique in the world, most people miss parts of their mouth regularly. Gradually, bacteria builds up in these places and hardens owing to the minerals in your saliva. Once these deposits have hardened, they need to be removed professionally as your toothbrush won’t be able to do it. Bacteria in the body can also get into the blood stream through the mouth and gradually contribute to health problems such as heart disease, if left untreated.
Seeing the hygienist regularly helps to keep this bacterial build up in the mouth to a minimum, preventing gum problems and bad breath, contributing to the reduction in tooth decay and helping to protect your health. My approach to our hygiene treatments is friendly and kind and completely designed to take care of you to the best of our ability. With regular appointments you can be confident that your mouth is well protected as well as feeling fresher and cleaner.
