ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE

WHY ARE HYGIENIST TREATMENTS IMPORTANT?

Dental hygiene and professional teeth cleaning is a crucial part of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. Over time, harmful bacteria can collect on teeth and gums to form plaque. Normal toothbrushes do not clean as effectively as the tools we have available at our Dental surgery and no one flosses perfectly.

You need a good Dental Practice clean every 4-6 months

Good dental cleaning PROTECTS you from;

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay and tooth loss
  • Plaque build up on teeth that hardens into tartar, which is more difficult to remove by a toothbrush
  • Other diseases which affect your overall general health, such as heart disease, diabetes or premature birth
  • Recent studies have also found that Covid 19 patients with gum disease are 9X more likely to die

HYGIENE CLEAN TREATMENT PROCESS

First of all, we do a thorough check-up of your teeth and gums to decide on the right hygiene treatment for you.

Our hygiene department is designed around the most current, scientific concept in dental hygiene for your oral care and wellness.

At Taylor Street Dental we use Guided Biofilm Therapy. We use a ‘disclosing’ solution which reveals where the biofilm is on your teeth. Then, we use specially designed handpieces that remove biofilm safely and precisely using air and water. With the help of the disclosing solution, we are able to clearly see whether it has been removed.

BENEFITS OF GUIDED BIOFILM HYGIENE TREATMENT

State-of-the-art concept to remove plaque from your teeth and prevent further oral health problems.

More comfortable and less invasive than traditional hygiene treatments, which use different instruments.

It can help to prevent other problems for your general health.
