At Dene Lodge Dental Practice, we adopt a preventative approach to your oral health.
Regular hygiene treatment can help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and tooth loss. If plaque is not removed adequately on a daily basis, it will harden into calculus (tartar). A professional deep clean will remove the tartar from hard to reach areas and leave you with that clean teeth feeling and a fresher breath. A buildup of tartar can irritate your gums, leading to inflammation and bleeding, eventually progressing to gum disease.
Staining of teeth is a common complaint – tea, coffee, red wine and smoking are the main culprits of teeth staining which can make your teeth’s surface rough and difficult to keep clean, not to mention the aesthetic concern it can cause.
Dental hygiene cleaning should be a part of your regular dental care, along with a good oral hygiene regime at home including tooth brushing and regular flossing. We will work with you to encourage positive oral hygiene behaviours so that we can secure your dental health for life.
