Preventing Gum Disease
Have you ever noticed bleeding when you brush your teeth? Perhaps your gums feel sensitive, swollen and redder in colour than usual. If this sounds familiar to you, the chances are that you could be at risk of developing or currently have early-stage gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can grow into a more severe condition resulting in tooth loss!
Luckily, you can keep gum disease at bay with a good at-home hygiene routine and regular visits to the hygienists.
Whether it’s through regular deep cleans to remove tartar and plaque build-up, lifestyle and dietary advice or even smoking cessation, the hygienist at our practice in Salisbury is best placed to assess your oral health and provide you with the tools you need to keep you smiling for longer
‘Scale and polish’ hygiene treatment
We understand that for those with sensitive teeth and gums, a dental hygiene appointment can be daunting. For this reason, our hygienist, Charlotte, takes a gentle and understanding approach to your treatment. At your regular hygiene appointment, Charlotte will conduct an initial oral health assessment before professionally cleaning your teeth through a process called ‘scale and polish’ treatment. This process sees the manual removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth and hard-to-reach areas that regular brushing can’t reach, ensuring harmful bacteria aren’t left to wreak havoc on your smile.
