Employing good oral hygiene habits to protect your gums from the risk of gum disease is paramount if you want to preserve your natural teeth into your older years.
Here in the U.K., 1 in 3 adults admit to having never been to the hygienist, putting them at risk of gum disease and premature tooth loss. Attending routine hygienist appointments with our friendly team for treatment, advice and support, will lead to healthier teeth and gums, and an increased likelihood of you maintaining your natural teeth for life.
Even if you’re the most conscientious of brushers, you should still be attending routine hygienist appointments, alongside visits to the dentist. With the best will in the world, there will always be areas of your mouth that you can’t protect simply through brushing – this is where the hygienist comes in. By carrying out a deep clean of your teeth, your hygienist here at Linden Dental removes plaque, tartar and staining from along the gum line and in-between your teeth, keeping your smile protected against the threat of gum disease.
No two patients have the same oral health concerns and needs. We will help you stay on track with maintaining good oral hygiene between visits by advising you on the best brushing techniques. Regular hygienist appointments help protect your natural teeth for as long as possible.
Thanks to our state-of-the-art Airflow Tooth Polishing system we can gently yet effectively remove stubborn stains and bacteria using a combination of compressed air, sodium bicarbonate and jet water. This fantastic treatment is ideal for those who aren’t keen on traditional hygiene tools and is favoured by patients with sensitive teeth.
A focus on prevention: when it comes to your gum health, we believe prevention is everything. Our team will take the time to explain how best you can care for your gums, by showing you the correct brushing and flossing techniques. We’re passionate about inspiring and encouraging patients to maintain good gum health.
Protect your smile: stay on top of any potential problems that you might not be able to spot yourself at home, and elude complex treatment later in life.
Eliminate bad breath: plaque and tartar build up can cause noticeably bad breath, affecting your confidence and relationships with others. Regular hygiene cleaning (particularly for those who smoke and regularly consume alcohol) removes these tenacious substances, giving you fresher breath and renewed confidence.
Supporting you: if you’re looking to adopt better lifestyle habits in the interests of your teeth and gums, we can point you in the direction of the right support.
A healthier-looking smile: hygiene polishing removes signs of staining, giving you healthier-looking teeth you can feel proud of.
