Taking care of your teeth and gums takes more than daily brushing and flossing. The best way to beat bacterial build-up and ward off tooth decay and gum disease, is to seek help from a dental professional. At Crofts Dental Practice in Essex, your dental hygiene is our top priority. With our skilled dental hygienist, your teeth and gums will have the best chance of staying in tiptop condition.
Why dental hygiene is so important
From a purely aesthetic point of view, healthy teeth and gums look good. Whenever you smile, your teeth are put on display for all to see. Keeping them healthy means you can smile with confidence.
Good dental hygiene also means you are less likely to experience the discomfort of tooth decay and gum disease. The latter is associated with higher risks of developing diabetes, stroke and heart disease. So taking good care of your teeth and gums means safeguarding your general health too.
Daily brushing and flossing is a great first step to maintaining good dental hygiene in Essex. Unfortunately this is not enough. Bacteria are persistent and will find the smallest nooks and crannies to take hold in your mouth. A build-up of bacteria can cause inflammation, gum disease and tooth decay. However there’s no need to worry, our dental hygienist has the skills and experience to help you avoid these unsavoury consequences.
Visiting our hygienist
Using special equipment and pastes, our dental hygienist will clean, scale and polish your teeth. This will significantly reduce the accumulation of bacteria. You will also receive advise on the best techniques for brushing and flossing your teeth at home. A small change in your approach can make a significant difference to your daily dental hygiene routine.
If you wear braces, have a bridge, dentures or dental implants, you may need some extra help to keep on top of your dental hygiene. Our friendly dental hygienist can give you a hand with this too.
