At AJ Dental Group, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. Therefore, we put great emphasis on ensuring that our patients know how to look after their teeth and gums well; backed up, of course, by regular professional dental care from our friendly team. This includes not only hygienists but also our dentist with a special interest in periodontal disease.
Whilst good home dental care, including brushing and flossing, will go a long way towards keeping your teeth healthy and free from the bacteria that can lead to decay and gum disease, a visit to our Woking dental practice enables our friendly hygienist to remove built up plaque and tartar that home cleaning alone will not remove. This simple procedure is an important tool in the fight against gum disease.
Gum disease is relatively easy to prevent with home care. Regular, correct brushing of the teeth and gums is essential, along with flossing too, as this helps to remove hidden bacteria and food debris from between the teeth and the also along the gum line.
Visits to our friendly hygienist at AJ Dental offers benefits including:
Where treatment is necessary, the method used will depend on the severity of the problem. Much early stage gum disease (gingivitis) can be treated through an improved home cleaning schedule, in combination with regular, professional cleans by our hygienist.
Where gum disease has become advanced, we can offer:
Good dental hygiene is not difficult if maintained and your mouth will feel and be healthier too. What’s more, with an increasing number of studies indicating a likely link between gum disease and medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and even Alzheimer's, it may not only be your teeth that you save through good oral health care.
