Keep Your Teeth and Gums Healthy
At Marylebone Implant Centre, we offer professional dental hygiene services to cater for each patient’s particular needs.
The usual hygiene treatment frequency is once every six months. However some patients, depending on the condition of their mouth, will require more regular appointments. Our implantologists will work alongside the hygienist to decide on the best treatment plan for you with regard to this.
Catriona, our dental hygienist knows a scale and polish is more than just a cosmetic procedure. Her sessions are an absolute must as part of good oral health. First and foremost, these appointments are the main weapon against gum disease. She will also remove stains and discolouration and can advise on tooth whitening. Catriona is patient and understanding and pays careful attention to detail. She is extremely good at educating patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health.
Hygiene Treatment at Marylebone Implant Centre
The main process of our dental hygiene treatment is to undertake a routine scale and polish of the patient’s teeth, using a combination of hand & ultrasonic-type instruments in order to clean stains and remove build-up of tartar.
Gingivitis is a common risk-factor that can arise from poor hygiene. It is caused by a build-up of plaque around the mouth, especially around the gums, causing inflammation and resulting discomfort. Affected patients may find that bleeding may occur while brushing their teeth and/or eating hard foods.
Thankfully, this condition is reversible and our hygienist will advise you on how to resolve it as part of your treatment. If left untreated, a case of Gingivitis can develop into more severe complications such as Periodontal Disease.
At appointments, the patient’s oral hygiene levels are assessed and any advice required is given. Some suggestions may include:
- The adoption of an electric toothbrush in your dental hygiene routine.
- Regular brushing of teeth.
- Use of interdental Tepe brushes
