Dental Hygiene is Vital

At Richhill Dental Care we consider the hygiene service a vital role in preventative dentistry. Seeing our Dental Hygienist regularly helps you to take the best care of your teeth and gums so that you can avoid problems caused by decay and gum disease. Gum disease usually goes unnoticed by sufferers until the later stages, but it is the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults.

Our Dental Hygienists initially will assess patients gingival and periodontal (gum) health. The Dental Hygienist visits focus on improving and maintaining the condition of your gums through oral health education and individual advice, as well as offering a professional cleaning both above and below the gum line, removing plaque deposits, calculus and polish of the teeth. Even with the best cleaning routine at home, there will be some areas of your mouth that your toothbrush can’t reach.

For a beautiful, healthy smile, it’s important to attend regular hygienist appointments. The professional clean, advice and thorough check of your teeth, mouth and gums by our friendly, experienced hygienist means bad breath, gum disease, tooth decay and other more serious problems can be prevented.

We will work with you to help develop an oral hygiene routine at home, such as proper brushing and interdental cleaning techniques, to help your mouth stay healthy and your smile stay bright between appointments.
