It is essential to maintain a high standard of dental hygiene and take good care of your teeth and gums to ensure they remain in the best possible condition.

We recommend you consider regular dental hygiene treatments. It helps maximise your oral health and remove any build-up of plaque or tartar.

What are the most common dental hygiene treatments?

The most common dental hygiene treatments are scaling and polishing, which are complementary to one another and often carried out together. Effectively a professional clean of the teeth, hygienists carry out these treatments to maintain the health of your gums and reverse the early signs of gum disease.

During treatment, the dentist will clean tartar deposits off your teeth with a special tool before polishing them to remove plaque.

Why do I need dental hygiene treatments?

As dental hygiene treatments act as a deep-clean for the mouth; you may choose to have one simply to maintain your current oral health or enhance it. However, your dentist may also refer you to a dental hygienist if you present with any symptoms of gum disease.

What are the benefits of dental hygiene treatments?

Aside from cleaning your mouth and freeing your teeth of plaque, dental hygiene treatments can improve your overall oral health and reduce the risk of gum disease or tooth loss. There are also cosmetic benefits of the treatments such as a brighter smile, better breath, and healthier-looking gums.

The effects of a dental hygiene treatment should last for several months following your treatment, provided you keep up an effective oral hygiene routine at home.

How can I maintain my dental hygiene at home?

During your dental hygiene appointment, the hygienist will make sure you’re armed with the latest techniques and products to use at home and can help you if you need to make lifestyle changes that will save your teeth, such as eating healthily or giving up smoking.

You can take care of your teeth and gums by brushing and interdental cleaning twice a day to stimulate the gums and remove any plaque on and around the teeth. A proper teeth-cleaning routine is essential for continued oral health.

Another thing to consider when it comes to dental hygiene is your diet. If you consume an excess of sugar, alcohol, caffeine, fizzy drinks, and citrus, you may be harming your teeth. Sticky foods and beverages coat your teeth and create harmful acids that attack and erode your tooth enamel.
