Hygiene

Keep your gums clean, healthy and sparkling.

Dental hygiene is an essential part of keeping a healthy smile. Over time, plaque and tartar build-up around the base of the tooth along the gum line. Failing to remove the plaque will result in tooth decay and gum disease. By making regular hygiene appointments, your team at Aesthetica Dental Clinique will be able to detect any potential problems before they get too serious.

A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build-up of plaque and tartar. During your regular dental hygienist appointments for teeth cleaning here at Aesthetica Dental Clinique, our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar in those harder-to-reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.

Two leading causes of tooth loss are gum disease and tooth decay. With your dentist and hygienist working together, we can deal with any of these problems and help prevent them in the future. You should need fewer fillings and, with a good routine, more infrequent or no extractions.

Your dental hygiene appointment is in steps.

We provide dental hygiene appointments with our experienced dental hygienists in our Practice to fully clean your teeth and gums and advise on your daily dental hygiene routine. Our dental hygiene appointments provide the following:

Frequently asked questions

In areas that are difficult to brush – after time plaque accumulates and hardens into calculus which is too hard for us to remove by brushing alone. Luckily our hygienist at Aesthetica Dental Clinique, has the right tools to carefully and meticulously remove the calculus build-up around your teeth and prevent more from accumulating.

All gum disease is caused by plaque. Plaque is a film of bacteria which forms on the surface of the teeth and gums every day. Many of the bacteria in plaque are completely harmless, but there are some that have been shown to be the main cause of gum disease. To prevent and treat gum disease, you need to make sure you remove all the plaque from your teeth every day. This is done by brushing and flossing. Flossing is a technique which many patients find very difficult to carry out on a daily basis. Our friendly hygienist at Aesthetica Dental Clinique will help you find easy and time saving ways for you to maintain your teeth.

The simple answer is no. Just like your car can be washed and cleaned, a service is more detailed and vital. The same applies to your teeth, as even with brushing, flossing and mouthwash use at home, there will still be areas you will miss, and these regular hygiene appointments will ensure such missed areas are cleaned. The hygienist at our Dental Practice will tell you where you are missing and prevent problems in these areas.

At our Dental Practice, our dental hygienist is specially trained in preventative oral healthcare to stop or prevent the progression and initiation of gum disease. We will advise you on how best to care for your teeth and the treatments you may need.

Unfortunately, gum disease progresses painlessly so that you do not notice the damage it is doing. However, the bacteria are sometimes more active, making your gums sore. This can lead to gum abscesses. Over several years, the bone supporting the teeth can be lost. If the disease is left untreated for a long time, treatment can become more complex. During your regular check-ups at our Dental Practice, your dentist will be able to spot early signs of gum disease and discuss with you the treatment options.

The cost of dental hygiene treatments can depend on few things, like the available treatments and those recommended for you, and the condition of your teeth and gums. There are many treatments available for your needs, and you can contact our dentist and hygienist at Aesthetica Dental Clinique to find out about these treatments, costs and payment plans.
