Hygiene care

Our hygienist is best placed to assist you to keep your teeth clean and gums healthy. Bacterial plaque left on the teeth from eating and drinking causes gum inflammation. If this is not adequately removed with brushing and flossing then the plaque can spread below the gum line and this may lead to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammation of the gums and can lead to loss of one or many teeth. The Bacteria can also access the blood stream to potentially lead to issues elsewhere. Recent research has linked periodontal disease with Heart Disease, Stroke and Diabetes.
