Fresh Breath & Oral Hygiene

Regular scaling and polishing will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, your smile whiter and your breath fresher.

Scaling removes the hard tartar which cannot be removed by brushing, and stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine are removed by polishing.

It is gum disease and not tooth decay that is the major cause of tooth loss (and also bad breath – halitosis) in adult patients. Bacteria thrive in the plaque and tartar on your teeth, producing harmful chemicals that irritate your gums and cause them to bleed, eventually causing teeth to become loose. Therefore, regular removal of bacteria, plaque and tartar professionally by the dentist or hygenist is essential to maintain healthy gums.

Excellent home care is also vital therefore you will be shown brushing and flossing techniques which will help you keep your teeth and gums in optimum condition.

This way you can:

  • Avoid fillings
  • Reduce dental fees
  • Maintain fresh breath
  • Keep your teeth for life
