Regular hygiene sessions are one of the most helpful treatments to avoid gum disease.

Everyone should make regular visits to the hygienist.

Together with brushing and flossing properly, it’s one of the best ways to have a dental care professional do a ‘deep clean’ and check for signs of any potential areas of neglect. A hygiene session involves a chart of the condition of the gums, an examination to assess the effectiveness of your personal cleaning technique, removal of tartar from above and below the gum line followed by a polish and feedback on the findings and coaching on how to achieve a higher standard of oral hygiene. If you are a first time patient with long term buildup of tartar and possible gum issues, the hygienist or dentist will ask you to come back with 2-4 weeks to complete the initial clean up.

Most people experience gum disease at some point but many people don’t realize they have it as it never develops into bleeding gums or bad breath. Yet, if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss as well as more serious medical conditions, for instance, there is a proven link between gum disease and cardiac disease, a probable link between severe gum disease and diabetes.

Signs of Gum Disease to look out for:

  • Red, swollen or tender gums or other pain in your mouth
  • Bleeding while brushing, flossing, or eating hard food
  • Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth
  • Mobile Teeth
  • Pus from between the teeth and gums
  • Bad breath
  • Find chewing painful

If you recognize any of these signs you should definitely make an appointment with our hygienist or dentist. We often compare our current fee for a standard hygiene session to the price of a theatre ticket, a hair appointment or a meal in a high-class restaurant. It really is excellent value and the benefits are long term. So why worry and get confused, set aside the time and get it done!

We can offer you a topical anesthetic that numbs the gums, so any hygiene sessions can be pain free on your request.
