What are the benefits of regular oral hygiene?
It is really important to keep your teeth clean, not only to stop them from rotting but also to prevent tooth loss from gum disease. Everybody can benefit from seeing a hygienist, dentist or dental therapist to have your teeth cleaned professionally.
How much does oral hygiene cost?
The cost will depend several factors; how long your gums have been bleeding, how much they bleed and where you have the treatment and how much treatment you have (a ten minute appointment once a year is not enough if your gums are bleeding). It doesn't cost anything to have your gums checked at the Smiles Centre and we can give you a treatment plan with any costs involved in just a few minutes.
How can our hygienist help you?
We use a top of the range ultrasonic cleaner and our dental therapist is an expert in oral hygiene. She will not only clean your teeth but, she will also make sure you know exactly how you should be keeping your teeth clean and what to use. This may sound a little strange to some, but when you consider that we are all different, we all have differently shaped teeth that also differ in size and position, you'll realise we are all unique and all require a unique way of keeping our teeth clean.
How often should we have our teeth cleaned by a hygienist?
We recommend that most people have a short hygiene appointment every six months but for people with heavily stained teeth or a gum disease, more frequently until the issue is resolved. This may take three or four visits.
Preventing gum disease and tooth loss
This is a before and after photo of plaque removal by our highly skilled dental therapist and demonstrates how well we can clean your teeth with our gentle approach. The before image shows how the patient is at high risk from gingivitis, periodontitis, bone loss and tooth decay. With the after image we can see how all of these oral conditions are greatly reduced giving a much nicer appearance and giving much healthier smelling breath.
This plaque cannot be removed with a toothbrush and only a skilled dental care professional can remove it for you. Come to smiles for a fresher, cleaner, healthier smile!
If you notice that your gums bleed when you brush them, you need to have your teeth seen to as soon as possible, it is not normal to have bleeding gums! If caught in time, gum disease can be reversed and your teeth can be saved, also saving you a lot of pain and a lot of money!
Cleaner, healthier teeth
These images show the buildup of plaque on a patient of ours. She had not seen a dentist or hygienist for almost 5 years. Her teeth were in a very good condition with no signs of decay but because of the plaque that had built up on the back of her teeth in that time she now has a considerable amount of bone loss. if this problem had been left for longer, this young woman would have started losing her teeth.
