What is dental hygiene treatment?
Gum disease (gingivitis) is a very common problem and symptoms such as inflammed gums, bleeding, sensitivity, receding gums and pain on brushing can all be signs of this. It is the leading cause of tooth loss, which is why at Ruh dental we take a preventative approach to gum disease, as it is very treatable.
However, if gum disease persists over a long period of time and progresses, it can eventually affect the supporting structure of the teeth which can result in pain, infections, wobbly teeth and even tooth loss. This is known as periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease.
At Ruh Dental our focus is on prevention and this is why we believe it is critical to visit the hygienist regularly to assist you in maintaining the health of your gums and prevent gum disease.
This is provided through regular maintenance cleaning at least twice a year, oral hygiene instruction and education.
Our hygiene appointments usually last approximately 45-60 minutes and include:
- Detailed discussion about your current oral hygiene regime and how it could be improved
- Comprehensive assessment of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth
- Full clean of the gums, teeth and polish
- Detailed oral hygiene instruction on how to maintain and look after your teeth tailored to your needs based on the findings of the assessment.
