Why are dental hygiene appointments necessary?

Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss or extraction in later life. There are different levels of severity with gum disease and these are measured on a scale of one to four. Four represents very bad.

Even though it is the jawbone which your teeth are anchored to, the surrounding gum is still important. When gum disease strikes it gradually destroys the gum tissue, causing gums to draw back. This increasingly exposes the roots of your teeth. In a knock-on effect, the jaw bone decays until the point when your tooth loosens and eventually falls out.

A dental implant can normally replace a missing tooth. But gum disease must be treated first. Therefore, unless you have your gum disease under control, you may lose your tooth and have no way of replacing it.

The most sensible approach is to treat gum disease now and prevent it from eroding your gums further.

This is one of the specialisms of hygienists. They are experts in cleaning teeth paying extra attention to the gum line. This is important for maintaining good gum health. Routine hygiene appointments allow your hygienist to monitor your gums. By responding early to any sign of gum disease, they can treat it before it worsens.

Frequent dental hygiene visits give you the following benefits:

  • Brighter and cleaner looking teeth
  • Healthy gums, free of disease
