Your Hygiene Visit

Your Dental Hygiene Visit

Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adult patients, caused by colonies of bacteria that thrives on plaque and tartar that builds up on your teeth. These bacteria can irritate your gums, causing receding gums and bleeding. Although brushing your teeth twice daily can help prevent this, there are hard to reach areas that are tricky to keep clean. Also, oral hygiene needs change with age and so does the condition of your teeth and gums.

Routine Dental Check-Ups

At Worthing Road Dental Practice, your dental check-ups are vital to maintaining good oral hygiene. The benefits of regular dental hygiene appointments include:

  • Allows for early detection and treatment to prevent gum decease, saving you unnecessary discomfort, time and money.
  • Helps in preventing bad breath,
  • Prevention of other diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory problems.

Our hygienists can give your mouth a “health-check” and advise you on how to look after your teeth better and give you a scale and polish.

A ‘scale’ involves removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth and hard-to-reach places, using an ultrasonic scaler and specialised instruments to scale away any stubborn stains.
