What dental hygiene treatments are available at DentalKind in Billericay?
At DentalKind in Billericay, Essex we use a preventative approach to your oral health. We believe keeping your teeth and gums healthy now will prevent dental problems occurring in the long term which could potentially be more expensive too.
Identifying and treating gum disease
Dental hygienists spend a lot of their time preventing and treating gum disease. Gum disease is the number one reason for tooth loss, and it can be hard to identify as there are often no symptoms.
The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis and happens when plaque on your teeth builds up and affects your gums. You may have inflamed, swollen or bleeding gums.
Gingivitis can be treated but if it is left, it can develop into the more serious form of gum disease known as periodontitis. This infection can affect deep into the gums and risks destroying the bone that supports your teeth.
Cleaning and scaling teeth
Dental hygienists in Billericay will clean and scale your teeth to remove plaque. Plaque that is left will harden on your teeth and turn into tartar which can cause tooth decay and if it forms below the gum line, it can cause gum disease. Tartar can only be removed by your dental hygienist. Your teeth will look and feel amazing after they have been scaled and polished.
Treating halitosis or bad breath
Halitosis or bad breath is caused by bacteria in your mouth. Our dental hygienists will remove the bacteria by giving your mouth, teeth and gums a thorough clean.
Our dental hygienists will give advice on how to best care for your teeth and gums at home. They will show you how to thoroughly brush your teeth and show you how to floss between your teeth all of which will help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay as well as preventing your teeth from staining. Dental hygienists will also give you advice about diet and lifestyle which can affect your oral hygiene.
