Special Care Dental employs qualified dental hygienists who can help patients maintain healthy gums and teeth.
We all know good dental hygiene is important but it is easily neglected and, if not done correctly, can lead to other health issues.
There is now compelling evidence that the health of our teeth and gums can directly impact on our wellbeing and affect conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and lung disease. Poor oral health has also been shown to affect the birth weight of a new born baby.
Our dental hygienists assist patients in a number of areas:
- Oral hygiene instructions
- Gum therapy
- Dietary advice
- Fissure sealants for preventative dentistry
- Fluoride treatment
- Fitting mouth guards
- Treatment for dry mouth and bad breath.
Good oral hygiene and regular check-ups will help you maintain your teeth well into your senior years.
