Your Journey

Dental Hygiene Cleaning

Dental hygienists perform professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the teeth. This helps prevent cavities and gum diseases.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling involves the removal of tartar and bacterial deposits from the tooth surfaces, including below the gumline. Root planing smoothens the tooth roots to prevent further buildup and promote the reattachment of the gums to the teeth.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, can range from mild gingivitis to more severe conditions like periodontitis. Treatment may involve deep cleaning procedures, antibiotics, and sometimes surgical intervention in advanced cases.

Fluoride Treatment

Dental hygienists often provide education on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and dietary habits. They may also offer guidance on lifestyle factors that can impact oral health

Education and Counseling

Oral Health Assessment

Dental hygienists assess the overall health of the gums and teeth, looking for signs of issues such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer.


Prevention of Tooth Loss

One of the primary goals of gum disease treatment is to prevent the progression of the disease and, ultimately, the loss of teeth. In the advanced stages of gum disease, the supporting structures of the teeth, including the bone, can be compromised. This can lead to tooth mobility and, in severe cases, tooth loss. By addressing gum disease through various treatments such as scaling, root planing, and other interventions, dental professionals aim to preserve the health of the gums and the structures that support the teeth, reducing the risk of tooth loss.

Improved Overall Oral Health

Gum disease doesn’t just affect the gums; it can have broader implications for overall oral health. If left untreated, it can contribute to other oral issues such as bad breath, receding gums, and even systemic health problems. By treating gum disease, oral health is restored and maintained. Healthy gums provide a stable foundation for the teeth, contribute to fresher breath, and help prevent the spread of bacteria that could potentially affect other areas of the body. Additionally, addressing gum disease can improve the appearance of the gums and smile.

Advanced Preventative care, Live longer with healthy gums

Bleeding gums are a sign of some form of gum disease and more than 80% of us (UK population) suffer from some type of it. It affects our general health and our well being.

Gum disease can come in the many forms including Gingivitis (inflammation/swelling of the gums) and Periodontitis (advanced inflammation/swelling of the gums progressed to destruction of the ligaments around the teeth). It can have not only damaging effects on the oral health and teeth, but can also affect the general health of the body. Research has shown the links between periodontal disease and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and various nutritional difficencies among others.

Gum disease of either forms is caused by a build up and formation of particular species of bacteria in the mouth. These films of bacteria as well as causing damage, are a common cause of bad breath and can actually be spread via saliva so can be seen spreading from person to person. Untreated, gum disease progressing can cause loose teeth and then eventual loss of teeth.

It can be prevented so let’s work together and reach the day there is no gum disease in Angel. Its in your hands and we can help you to eliminate gum disease. Treatment includes reducing the amount of bacteria (plaque and tartar) in our mouth. It is possible by efficient daily oral hygiene at home (brushing with a clean brush, flossing and using inter dental brushes) but even through brushing and flossing we cannot remove every trace of bacteria. Only a Hygienist or Dentist can remove this difficult to reach plaque which hardens in the form of tartar.
