We offer the services of our skilled dental hygienist, Jackie Dobson.
Dental hygiene is of huge importance, not just in terms of maintaining a healthy set of teeth, but for overall health and general confidence.
Increasingly, studies are showing links between poor oral hygiene, gum disease and systemic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. Currently, advanced gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in the UK.
Gum disease is a pain-free condition until it is in the advanced stages. Often, the only warning sign is spitting blood when tooth brushing.
Gum disease is caused by a build up of hardened dental plaque. There can be a genetic susceptibility to it and smoking plays a large role in its formation.
Jackie provides very thorough treatment, removing all disease-causing build ups and providing bespoke oral hygiene instruction.
