what are the benefits of
professional hygiene treatments?
Not for nothing are we known as a nation of tea drinkers – so it should come as no surprise that if you enjoy a daily caffeine fix (or a red wine fix, for that matter), you will inevitably experience staining. And if you happen to neglect your oral hygiene too, that staining will be exacerbated by the presence of tartar, a hard, yellow or brown calculus that builds up when teeth aren’t being brushed effectively. Your hygienist will combat all this with a scale and polish, removing stains, plaque and tartar and polishing teeth to a high shine. In addition to deflecting the formation of more plaque, your smile will look and feel great.
Bad breath is one of our patients’ most common concerns, and the good news is that, in the vast majority of cases, bad breath can be treated by working with your hygienist. We’ll listen to your concerns, chat with you about your dental habits and lifestyle, and help you establish a robust hygiene routine that you really can stick to at home. We’ll provide tailored advice, too, with techniques and products suited to your needs and lifestyle.
Caring for your teeth isn’t just about cleaning. You already know that eating and drinking things that are high in sugar and acid are bad for your teeth – but did you know that a healthy, balanced diet can actually improve your oral health? Having a proper balance of protein, fruit and veg (especially dark, leafy greens), carbs and calcium-rich dairy will help get your smile into peak condition – and your hygienist is your point of call for the latest nutrition and lifestyle advice.
