WHAT IS ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE?
Oral hygiene maintenance is a crucial part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Harmful bacteria can collect on teeth and gums to form plaque from as short as 20 min. Normal toothbrushes do not clean as effectively as the tools we have available at our Dental surgery and no one flosses perfectly.
You need a good professional clean and check-up every 4-6 months.
Good professional cleaning PROTECTS you from;
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay and tooth loss
- Plaque build up on teeth that hardens into tartar, which is more difficult to remove by a toothbrush
- Other diseases which affect your overall general health, such as heart disease, diabetes or premature birth
- Recent studies have also found that Covid 19 patients with gum disease are 9X more likely to die from COIVD infections.
ORAL HYGIENE MAINTENANCE PROCESS
Our Oral hygiene maintenance process is designed around the most current, scientific concept in dental hygiene for your oral care and wellness.
At Taylor Street Dental we use Disclosing Biofilm Technique. It is a ‘disclosing’ solution which reveals where the biofilm is on your teeth. Then, we use a hand piece to gently remove biofilm safely and precisely using air, water and vibration. With the help of the disclosing solution, we are able to clearly see whether it has been removed.
