Dental Hygiene at Beechwood Dental
Dental Hygiene is centered around the fundamental elements of a beautiful smile – healthy teeth and gums. Indeed it would be unwise to spend money on complex treatments if underlying gum disease is not first dealt with by your hygiene team.
Surprisingly, more teeth are lost due to gum disease than tooth decay. Routine visits to our hygienists play a key role in enhancing dental health and averting Periodontal (gum) disease, bleeding gums, and dental decay (caries). Our comprehensive preventative program encompasses diet advice, fluoride application, fissure sealants, and expert oral hygiene instruction. The advanced equipment in our hygiene surgeries includes cutting-edge air-polishing machines, ensuring the gentle removal of unsightly staining without damaging your teeth.
A widespread concern affecting approximately half the population is mouth odour, a issue that can be reduced through regular visits to our dedicated dentists and hygienists.
