Dental Hygiene And Your Wellbeing
Several studies have shown links between poor oral hygiene and coronary heart disease and diabetes. Other studies showed that women with gum disease were more likely than those with healthy gums to deliver preterm, low birth weight babies.
By maintaining healthy gums we reduce the risk of bacteria entering our bodies. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, then it is highly likely that some of these bacteria will enter your bloodstream therefore optimal gum health is vital to your overall well being and general health also.
During a visit to our dental practice, Our hygienist will examine your gum health and advise/carry out the most suitable type of treatment. This can range from basic oral hygiene instruction and removal of tartar or more advanced periodontal treatment which aims to reduce/eliminate bone loss. Either way, a plan will be tailor-made for you and discussed with you before treatment commences.
