Why is dental hygiene important?

Good dental hygiene is essential to maintain a healthy mouth. Hygiene appointments also help spot the early signs of gum disease. As with any condition, the quicker it is identified, the easier and less invasive it is to treat. Left untreated, gum disease can cause unpleasant symptoms such as bleeding, swollen gums, discomfort, and pain and even tooth loss.

At West1 Dental Clinic our hygiene treatments are carried out by our dentists, and we recommend that you visit us every three months. Frequent hygiene visits can help prevent gum disease and keep your smile bright by removing everyday surface stains. At your dental hygiene appointment we will also provide you with information and advice on home hygiene, including brushing techniques, products which may benefit you and nutritional advice to ensure you keep your teeth and gums in the best condition possible.
