Dental Hygiene at Beechwood Dental
A beautiful smile is based upon healthy teeth and gums and 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. Regular visits to the hygienist will help to improve dental health and prevent Periodontal (gum) disease, bleeding gums and dental decay (caries). Diet advice, fluoride application, fissure sealants and oral hygiene instruction are all part of our preventative programme. Our hygiene surgeries are fitted with the very latest equipment including air-polishing machines which gently remove unsightly staining without damaging your teeth.
Approximately half the population have a problem with mouth odour; a problem that can be reduced with regular visits to our dentists and hygienists.
