Dental Hygiene in Kingston Upon Thames

Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth, and without routine cleaning gum disease can occur in the following stages:

  1. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush them are a sign of a gum inflammation (gingivitis)
  2. When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop into early gum disease (periodontitis), which affects the supporting bone around the tooth resulting in tooth mobility. This can lead to early tooth loss.

Fortunately, this can be avoided by attending regular hygiene check-ups at the practice and maintaining a good daily hygiene routine. Brushing between the teeth, flossing and replacing your toothbrush every three months will also benefit your gum health.

Dental hygiene will help to remove any hard-to-reach plaque or tartar from your teeth that may have built up over time.

Here is what you can expect from a hygiene appointment:
  1. Your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal you will need and risk factors will be highlighted.
  2. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. This process is also known as scaling and polishing.
  3. Tailored hygiene advice showing you correct tooth brushing technique and given tips on cleaning between your teeth.

Dental hygiene at our practice also functions preventatively to reduce risk of gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that we will be able to assist you with.

Stain removal from smoking and diet including tea/coffee/wine can be completed using Airflow polishing system.
