How Dental Hygiene Treatments Can Help You

Beautiful, clean teeth and healthy gums are key to the way we look and feel about ourselves and how others see us.
Even the best brushing and flossing routines cannot eliminate all traces of bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque). Left on your teeth, these bacteria become hard tartar, which cannot be brushed off. This can lead to bad breath and bleeding gums, which are signs of gum disease.

Bad Breath

Bad breath is usually caused by:

  • The smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums
  • Smoking is also one of the main causes of bad breath
  • Certain illnesses such as nasal and stomach conditions
  • Bits of food that get caught between the teeth and on the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell

So regular brushing and flossing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh.

Bleeding Gums

Do your gums bleed when cleaning your teeth or eating? Have they become rather red and swollen? Healthy gums should be pink, firm and keep your teeth securely in place. Your gums should not bleed when you touch or brush them.

There are a number of reasons why your gums might bleed. But in many instances, swollen and bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease, which can lead to the loss of teeth.

It is important in any case of bleeding gums to seek advice from your dentist as soon as possible. We will check your teeth and gums, and possibly recommend regular hygiene cleans.

Stained Teeth

Do you suffer from teeth stained by food, drink – mainly red wine, coffee and tea – and tobacco? Regular hygiene cleans remove some of these stubborn stains and can be coupled with Air-flow Jet Polishing to give a long lasting result.

If you’d like to lighten the colour of your teeth, why not look into Teeth Whitening?
