In order to help maintain optimum oral health and hygiene, it is necessary to regularly remove any plaque build-up. It has become increasingly clear that oral health is closely linked to a person’s overall health. In fact, recent studies even link heart disease and incidences of stroke with gum disease.
The bacteria in plaque cause gum inflammation and bleeding, known as gingivitis. If this plaque isn’t removed, inflammation can quickly lead to gum disease. Gum disease causes teeth to lose their bone support and become loose. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Scale and Polish
One of our professional hygienists will offer advice on your daily oral health routine as well as providing a thorough and effective clean and polish, plus gum health check. We recommend coming for an Ultra Clean every six months, in between your regular dental check-ups.
This treatment will leave your teeth looking brighter than ever, without bleaching. A professional hygienist will apply a gentle stream of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate crystals before applying a glossy diamond polish.
The Detox Clean involves one of our professional hygienists designing a personalised treatment plan to help improve your overall oral health and hygiene. The Detox Clean treatment focuses on gum health and the prevention of gum disease. This usually requires two appointments.
