Oral Hygiene And Periodontal Care
To help you maintain your beautiful smile we recommend regular visits to see our dental hygienist. Everyone knows that hygienists scale and polish teeth, but ours do much more than that.
Appledore hygienists will professionally clean your teeth as well as giving you advice and help with your home care. They will monitor the health of your gums and periodically measure the height of the bone surrounding your teeth. They will help you combat gum disease by using special medicament in the pockets around your teeth and by showing you special cleaning methods. They will help you combat decay by checking if your saliva contains enough calcium and if not, by providing a home treatment regime to help your teeth withstand attack. If you have severe gum disease we may refer you to a periodontist for specialist care.
Gum disease has been linked to heart disease - it has been shown that men in particular with gum disease are 50% more likely to have heart problems than those with healthy mouths. These bacteria have been implicated in heart valve disease.
If you look after your gums, but your partner doesn't, every time you kiss, your partner will be passing their bacteria to you. So you should ensure your partner gets regular dental treatment too. It has been shown that expectant mums with gum disease give birth to lower birth weight babies than mums with healthy mouths. The bacteria in the mouth which cause gum disease have been shown to cross the placenta.
Regular visits to the hygienist can keep you healthy.
