What to Know About Gum Disease

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a major cause of tooth loss for adults. The disease occurs when the gums and surrounding area become infected or inflamed.

Plaque, a sticky bacteria that builds up on the teeth, can eventually turn into tartar and spread under the gum line. Only a qualified dental health professional like a hygienist can effectively remove tartar and prevent the progression of gum disease.

Preventive Dental Care at Home

Research shows that preventive dentistry is the best way to maintain good oral hygiene and avoid severe problems when caring for your teeth and gums.

Here’s an example of what caring for your teeth involves:

Cleaning your teeth thoroughly is important too. Here are some tips to help keep your teeth looking their best on a daily basis:

Brush Your Teeth at Least Twice Per Day

We recommend brushing with fluoride toothpaste for at least two minutes to ensure each tooth surface receives a thorough clean. An easier way to make this process a routine is to clean each of the four sections in your mouth for 30 seconds.

Use a High-Quality Electric Toothbrush

Some studies show that switching to an electric toothbrush gives you cleaner teeth, healthier gums, and less decay.

The Best Time to Clean Your Teeth

For the best results, we recommend cleaning your teeth twice daily (once in the morning and once in the evening). While brushing your teeth immediately after a meal may seem ideal, especially if you’ve had acidic foods like fruit, it’s better to wait about an hour. This allows the acid on the surface of your teeth to neutralise, minimising any potential damage while still giving you a thorough clean.

Your Next Hygiene Check-up in Ewell

Our friendly team of hygiene professionals take their roles as oral health ambassadors seriously. Rest assured, you’ll be treated with gentle care and attention from start to finish.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

At our dental practice, our hygienists have a variety of responsibilities to ensure you receive comprehensive care during your appointment, including:

Updating Records

We start by updating your health and dental records and noting your medical history, existing conditions, medications, supplements, and more. This information helps us tailor your treatment and make recommendations based on what’s appropriate for you.

X-Rays

If your current dental X-rays need updating, we may take new ones to better understand your oral health beyond what is visible on the surface.

Oral Health Evaluation and Advice

During your appointment, our hygienist may advise on maintaining optimal oral health. We can assess your brushing technique, identify areas of concern, and offer diet or nutrition advice for healthier teeth.

Deep Cleaning

We’ll proceed with a complete cleaning using various dental tools, such as fluoride or fissure sealant treatments, as needed. If we identify other issues, we may involve an expert dentist to assess the situation and discuss treatment options.
