One of the most common conditions to affect patients in the UK is gum disease, and this can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. This is due to the daily build up of plaque and tartar where the tooth meets the gum. Initially this may lead to gingivitis (inflammation and bleeding of the gums), but if untreated can lead to further destruction of the supportive structures of the teeth themselves. This process can proceed unnoticed as initially can be pain free.
Our hygienist is trained to identify specific patient needs and tailor a treatment plan to help that individual, from minor cases to patients suffering from more advanced periodontal conditions.
Treatment with our dental hygienist can help to relieve pain, sensitivity, bad breath and prevent tooth loss. Cosmetic treatments such as stain removal can also be completed. As such our hygienist is a invaluable member of our team.
Please speak to your dentist to find out more about the services our hygienist can offer.
