Help me keep my mouth healthy » Dental Hygiene
It's really important that you come to Smile Essential in Leicester for dental hygiene treatment so that we can work with you to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. Maintaining your dental wellbeing is vital and your hygiene examination forms an essential part of your healthy living regime.
Your mouth deserves to receive professional care and it's also important to emphasise that hygiene therapy in Leicester may also reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and premature births. A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled.
Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a dental hygienist, who will help remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. An important aspect of the hygienist's role is to show you how to look after your teeth properly at home so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
If you have a bridge, denture, brace or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with. It is recommended that you visit our Leicester hygienists for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy. Dental hygiene also helps treat bad breath.
Maintaining a comfortable and healthy mouth will significantly reduce your need for dental treatment in the long term. Periodontal (gum) therapy not only treats existing disease but also prevents future disease. Call us now on 0116 2891317 for more information.
