Good oral hygiene is one of the most effective ways of preventing long term dental problems and cleaning teeth properly prevents tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath and stops more serious problems such as tooth loss.

By looking after your gums you’re looking after your general health.

Did you know there’s a proven link between gum disease and your overall wellness? If you regularly see a hygienist to help look after your gums you can reduce the risk of diabetes, stroke, heart disease and even Alzheimer’s.

Plaque is a sticky, colourless deposit of bacteria that is constantly forming on the tooth surface and it can trap stains on the teeth. It begins forming on teeth a few hours after brushing, which is why we advise people to brush at least twice a day and floss daily.

Dental hygienists use tooth scaling to remove plaque and physically scrape away calculus to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease, and they polish the teeth to leave them feeling smooth.

Regular hygiene appointments reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth loss because even with a good tooth brushing technique, most people miss parts of their mouth. Book a hygiene appointment at Tewkesbury Dental today.
