We may recommend that you see our professionally trained hygienists to treat and advise you on the ongoing care of your teeth and gums.
Gum problems are the most common oral disorder in the developed world it has
been recognised that a quick scrape and polish is not sufficient to keep your gum tissue healthy and strong. Our hygienists pay attention to each tooth individually and remove any calculus (tartar), dental plaque and staining on your teeth. This is the best preventative maintenance treatment and will also help you to be free of bad breath. You will also be shown how to look after your teeth and gums at home and if necessary, discuss any other ways to prevent dental disease such as diet, smoking, stress and any medical condition or medication. For patients with more serious gum problems the hygienist will assess those accordingly and establish a treatment, maintenance and monitoring plan.
Latest science shows a strong correlation between bad oral health and poor general health. With the correct care techniques and regular monitoring the dental hygienists at Avondale Dental will help you maintain your teeth for the rest of your life.
