Good dental hygiene is a vital factor in overall health of the mouth and can help reduce the chance of someone losing their teeth through gum disease. Because disease of the gums can sometimes develop silently, it may not become obvious to you until it is at an advanced stage. It is a good idea to have regular hygiene cleaning done professionally at a dental surgery. This would enable you to keep teeth as long as possible! On top of that it is crucial to have healthy and unswollen gums if you are about to undertake or treatments such as fillings, orthodontics or implants.

At Eyes & Smiles Dental you have the opportunity to experience a new type of hygiene clean without the need to resort heavily to the traditional ultrasonic scaler. With new technology, we can clean the gums and teeth with a specialised system called Aquacare, harnessing water, air and powder without any unpleasant vibrations or noise. Don't believe us?

FAQs

Why is this treatment important?
Regular professional cleaning combined with your home care will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.

Will the treatment hurt?
Scaling and polishing is usually pain-free. However, if you do have any discomfort the hygienist can use anaesthetic creams, or give you some local anaesthetic. It is important that you let the hygienist know at the time so they can help with your pain.

Can a hygienist help prevent dental disease?
This is what the training of the hygienist is all about. Carefully removing the deposits that build up on the teeth (tartar) and teaching you how to prevent it reforming again, will go a long way to slowing the progress of gum disease.
By discussing your diet, and recommending other preventive measures, your tooth decay can also be slowed down.

What help is available for children?
Children can benefit from having their teeth polished. The hygienist can also apply fluoride gels and solutions to help prevent decay. The permanent back teeth can also benefit from having the biting surfaces sealed. This is done by applying a special plastic coating to the biting surface soon after they come through.

What other help can be given to adults?
Adults can also benefit from having fluoride applied. They can also have anti-bacterial gels and solutions applied under the gum to kill bacteria which causes gum disease. Another very important part of the hygienist's work is giving regular instruction and advice on preventative care. Your hygienist will have shown you how to remove plaque with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. You will also have been shown how to clean between your teeth with floss, tape or little brushes. The relevant products required to do this are sold in the practice and your hygienist will recommend those that are best for you.

What can I do to help the hygienist?
You can do a great deal to help yourself and the hygienist, as you are in control of your dental care in between visits to the practice.
Cutting down the amount of sugar in your diet, and the number of times that you eat during the day, can help to reduce decay. Your hygienist can help you by looking at your decay problem, your diet and by making some recommendations for you to consider.
