Dental Hygiene in Woking

Preventative dental care for healthy teeth and gums

Hygienist

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.

Prevention

Flossing

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:

  • Advice on the best methods of brushing
  • Instruction on how to floss (unfortunately only around 20% of the UK do so)
  • Removal of hidden plaque and also hardened tartar that has become firmly attached to the teeth.
  • Cleaner feeling and nicer looking teeth that will leave you with a healthier mouth
  • Potential improvement for halitosis (bad breath) sufferers

Treatment

Gum disease

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:

  • Detection of periodontal disease and an effective treatment plan to restore gum health
  • Deep cleaning to remove potentially damaging plaque and tartar
  • Advice on how to maintain a healthy mouth following treatment

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.
