As a team who cares about preventive dentistry, we see dental hygiene and preventative dental care as an essential part of your dental care.
While good dental hygiene starts at home, it is also important to combine this routine with regular visits to the dental hygienist. At Ringway Dental, our dental hygiene treatment plan has been built on a 360-degree attitude to dental care that places our patients at the heart of all our treatments.
While many patients believe that visits to the dental hygienist are simply about receiving a thorough clean and polish, our team of experienced dental hygienists here in Cheadle offer much more than that. Not only will our highly-skilled, gentle hygienists clean your teeth much more thoroughly than is possible at home but they also help with preventative care. Regular hygiene appointments are necessary for helping to prevent, identify and, in some cases, even treat gum disease.
Also known as gingivitis, gum disease is a common oral health issue that is, thankfully, easily preventable. Some symptoms that might indicate you’re suffering from gum disease include inflamed gums, bleeding or receding gums, and increased sensitivity. If you’re experiencing pain when brushing your teeth, this might also be a sign that you’re in need dental hygiene treatment.
Aside from relieving any pain or discomfort you might be in, it is very important to treat gum disease because if left untreated it can lead to further issues. Gum disease affects the structures that support the teeth, which can contribute to infections and loose and wobbly teeth. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, which we want to try and prevent as much as possible. If you are concerned that you may be suffering from gum disease, we encourage you to contact our dental hygienists in Cheadle to book an appointment.
Gum disease is best prevented through preventative dental care, which means rigorous and effective oral health care. This includes regular visits – we recommend once or twice a year – to a gum disease dentist or dental hygienist.
Our dental hygienists in Stockport or Cheadle will help create and tailor an ongoing treatment plan. This is designed for both at-home care and here with us at the practice, and is built around your own set of oral health care needs. We will ask you about your current at-home dental care routine, diet and lifestyle, and offer advice on how it could be improved for your particular situation.
Your dental hygiene appointment is also a chance for our skilled hygienists to thoroughly examine the gums and the structures that support the teeth. This is to help identify, prevent, protect, and in some cases treat them for gum disease. There will also be a full cleaning of the gums and teeth, finishing off with a polish so that you leave the practice with a healthy, happy looking smile.
