Why is oral health so important? The mouth is the gateway to the body and many studies have shown that oral bacteria have been found within areas of the body that are infected or carry disease. Further studies show gum disease are linked to many other diseases of the body.
There are proven links between our oral health and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia, arthritis, and pregnancy complications.
By maintaining good oral health, you are helping to reduce your risk of other systemic diseases.
At your hygiene appointment our hygiene team will screen your gums to check the health and advise accordingly. The regular, professional removal of plaque and tartar will promote healthy gums.
Dental plaque is the sticky layer of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth. Some foods, such as sweet snacks and starches can increase the formation of plaque, which can sometimes remain hidden between the teeth and underneath the gum line.
The bacteria in dental plaque release acids, which can lead to cavities and gum inflammation. Our hygiene team will show you how to remove plaque yourself to improve your gum health between visits.
A powerful yet controlled jet of water, air and fine powder not only polishes all the surfaces of a tooth, removing plaque, discoloration and soft deposits, but also reaches deep into periodontal pockets up to a depth of 5 mm. It is very effective at removing the damaging biofilm that develops when dental plaque is colonized by bacteria and can cause periodontitis and peri-implantitis to develop.
Air polish leaves your teeth feeling super clean and smooth and whiter if you have stains from tea, coffee and red wine.
Air polish is an additional £45.
Our hygienists have had additional training to be able to offer complex treatment when required. This usually involves treatment with local anaesthetic and multiple visits to be able to clean an area thoroughly.
Care plans for this are on a individual basis and either your Smile Hub Dentist or Hygienist would advise if this is recommended.
Consistent dental hygiene is the key to a healthy mouth and a confident smile. Our hygiene experts understand that most dental problems can be easily prevented through a regular program of hygiene checks, advice and daily control.
If you have ever experienced bad breath, tooth decay or gum disease, the most likely cause of these is bacterial plaque, which can be controlled by effective dental hygiene.
