Did you know that long term plaque build-up is one of the most common causes of tooth decay and eventual tooth loss in the UK? That's why, at Castelnau Dentists, we recommend dental hygiene appointments at least every six months with one of our friendly and professional hygienists.
Playing an important part in reducing your oral health problems, your dental hygiene appointment will include a gentle yet thorough clean of your teeth to remove the build-up of harmful plaque. She will remove the odour causing bacteria for a fresh breath, and she will air polish your teeth to remove any light stains for a sparkling clean smile. You will also be advised about brushing and flossing techniques so that your oral health between visits can be maintained to ensure harmful bacteria is kept at bay.
Gum disease is inflammation of your gums and affects more than half of adults who have their own teeth in the UK. If you don't clean plaque off your teeth regularly, your gums will become red and swollen, possibly resulting in them bleeding. This is the early stage of gum disease, but with regular visits to the hygienist to remove the plaque and to improve the health of your gums, it is completely reversible.
