DEntal Hygiene

At Harborne Dental Practice we understand that oral hygiene is vital for your dental health and your overall wellbeing too. We prefer to prevent problems from occurring rather than simply fixing things when they go wrong. We recommend regular dental visits for examinations and hygiene treatments to ensure your mouth, teeth and gums remain in great condition.

Hygiene therapy

Bleeding gums and other gum problems are something we take very seriously. Hygiene therapy will reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions linked with gum disease.

A surprising 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives. But with carefully considered dental care, the risks can be easily controlled .Our high quality dental hygiene services will help to keep your mouth free from tooth decay and gum disease, it can also prevent and treat bad breath.

Through a combination of our skill and care, plus your own oral hygiene efforts at home, you can ensure your teeth and gums remain in tip-top condition for life. Instead of filling decayed teeth, we believe in investing time improving your oral care routine. This way all our patients can maintain a healthy, happy mouth.


What is the role of a Dental Hygienist?

Dental Hygienists are specially trained to work with Dentists in giving dental care to their patients. They play a very important role and are mainly concerned with ensuring and maintaining impeccable oral health.

Dental Hygienists have both clinical and health promotional responsibilities. Clinically they help to treat and prevent periodontal (gum) disease by scaling and polishing teeth; they can take dental radiographs and undertake monitoring and screening procedures.

Dental Hygienists are also permitted to apply topical fluorides and fissure sealants in order to reduce dental caries (tooth decay).Their Health Promotional role includes motivating and encouraging individuals and groups in oral health practices including oral hygiene and diet advice.

Why is this treatment so important?

Regular professional cleaning, combined with motivation and advice on how to improve your dental care routine at home will produce huge dental benefits.

Research has shown that good dental health significantly reduces the risk of filling replacement, new cavities, gum recession, food trapping and teeth drifting.

Gum disease is also linked to Heart disease and there are concerns about poor gum health and pregnancy.
