At Clocktower Dental Surgery, dental hygiene is central to our dental care provision and forms the foundation of our preventive care measures.

As a team, we know that good dental hygiene starts with a good dental care routine at home, but it also includes regular visits to the dental hygienist.

Why should I visit the dental hygienist?

Visiting the dental hygienist should be part of everyone’s routine oral health care. They are able to provide a wide range of treatments that will not only leave your teeth feeling fresh and clean but also prevent the occurrence of gum disease.

Our friendly hygienists will work with you to identify and treat gum disease as well as show you how to take care of your teeth.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums which damages the soft tissue and can lead to bone and tooth loss if left untreated. It’s important to remember that while periodontal disease is relatively common, it is also relatively easy to both prevent and treat. Our dental hygienists can help with both.

What are some symptoms of periodontal disease?

Some of the most commonly experienced symptoms include bleeding or inflamed gums, bad breath, and loose teeth which can cause difficulty in eating.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, we highly recommend you make an appointment with our dental hygienists. With regular visits, we will hopefully be able to help stop you from experiencing any of these symptoms.

What is a dental hygiene appointment like?

Your dental hygiene experience will vary according to your set of dental care needs, and oral health history. Our caring, gentle and informed hygienists will help you feel comfortable and secure when receiving treatment, and can also help design an at-home treatment plan that works for you. This will be tailored to your own set of needs and will help keep your teeth and oral health in great condition, as well as help to prevent gum disease.
