Regular hygiene treatment is very important for your teeth and gums. Together with brushing and flossing, it is one of the best ways to avoid gum disease.
Did you know that according to the NHS more than half of adults across the UK have gum disease? Many people do not realize they have it. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and more serious medical conditions
Our practice has a dedicated hygienist who helps in the prevention of gum disease. If there are already problems present, we can usually arrest disease to help you keep your teeth for longer. Typical treatments include demonstrations on how to clean the teeth and gums properly, removing plaque and removing calculus.
Our hygienist can also assist with basic cosmetic dentistry for patients who do not have any type of gum disease. This includes stain removal. Many patients leave our practice in Sutton with lovely, clean teeth and a winning smile restored.
Our hygienists are passionate about helping our patients with prevention and gum disease, and are always happy to answer any questions you have.
