Dental hygiene appointments are vital to ensure good oral health. Poor dental hygiene can cause a number of issues such as:
Advanced gum disease leading to tooth loss
Discoloured & stained teeth
Namarta, our new Dental Hygienist at Thorpe Lea Dental, will remove the plaque from around your teeth.Plaque is a soft, sticky substance that builds up on your teeth and is mostly made of bacteria.The bacteria feed on sugar from food and drink producing acids as a waste product. The acid attacks the teeth by dissolving minerals in the tooth surface which can result in tooth decay and gum inflammation.Gum disease now also has links to:
Low birth weight in pregnancy
The good news is that gum disease is preventable if treated early.Regular visits to your dental hygienist will minimise your risk and provide a fresh and clean mouth.At Thorpe Lea Dental we use the latest technology when cleaning your mouth including ultrasonic equipment and airflow polishing for full stain removal to keep your teeth and gums healthy and happy.Contact us at Thorpe Lea Dental Staines, Middlesex for more appointments and advice.01784 454 899.
