Regular hygiene sessions will help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Our hygiene therapist Tina will remove plaque and bacteria from every surface of every tooth to ensure that your mouth is spotlessly clean and smelling fresh.
Your mouth deserves to receive professional care and it’s also important to emphasise that hygiene therapy may also reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, dementia and premature births. A staggering 90 percent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care, the risks can be easily controlled.
Hygiene treatment under direct access
It is now possible to see a dental hygienist privately, without first seeing a dentist. This is called treatment under direct access. If you would like to visit Tina, our dental hygienist, and you are not a patient of Monmouth Dental Practice, that’s no issue. Give us a call to book your appointment and have your gums checked and your teeth thoroughly cleaned. Appointments are 40 minutes.
Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bleeding gums. People often think this is normal – it is not. It is almost always a sign of gum disease.
- Loose teeth.
- Gum recession (longer teeth). This often results in increased tooth sensitivity.
- Bad tastes and bad breath.
- Drifting teeth.
Our expertise is in promoting oral health and giving you the skills and the confidence to make a real difference to the health of your mouth. The care that we provide forms a central part of how Monmouth Dental Practice aims to keep you healthy through our preventive approach.
