What dental hygiene treatments are available at Market Rasen, Lincolnshire?

At Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, our dental hygienists work with you to prevent problems occurring and then treating issues quickly when they arise. Common dental hygiene treatments include:

Clean and scaling teeth

Dental hygienists clean, scale and polish your teeth to remove plaque. If plaque is left on your teeth and hardens, it turns into tartar also known as calculus. This is more dangerous to teeth as it forms above and below the gum line and can lead to gum disease. Tartar can only be removed by a hygienist or dental professional.

Identifying and treating gum disease

Dental hygienists spend a lot of their time preventing and treating gum disease. Gum disease can be serious as it can lead to tooth loss. It is tricky to identify gum disease as there are often no symptoms. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and occurs when plaque builds up on your teeth leading to sore, swollen or inflamed gums. Gingivitis can be treated, but if left, it can turn into periodontitis which is the more serious form of gum disease.

Periodontitis may mean you experience halitosis or bad breath and pus under the gums. It may be possible to treat periodontitis but if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. The main reason for people losing their teeth is due to periodontitis.

Halitosis or bad breath

Our dental hygienists treat halitosis. Mostly this is caused by a build up of bacteria in your mouth. Our hygienists remove the bacteria by thoroughly cleaning your mouth and they will then give you tips about how to prevent halitosis from re-occurring.

Dental hygiene advice

Your dental hygienist can give advice and tips about how to best look after your teeth and gums at home. This includes brushing and flossing techniques to keep plaque and staining at bay. Dental hygienists also give diet and lifestyle advice which have an impact on oral hygiene.
