Oral Hygiene and Preventative Care at Lister House Dental Centre, Harlow, Essex
Oral Hygiene and Preventative Care routines
Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults and tooth decay is a growing problem for even the very youngest children. Bacteria thrive in the plaque and tartar on your teeth, causing gum irritation and bleeding. If left unresolved this eventually results in the gums becoming infected and causing teeth to become loose.
Regular professional removal of bacteria and plaque by the hygienist is essential in maintaining healthy gums. Our hygienist [insert name] is highly experienced and as well as cleaning and polishing your teeth [he/she] will also give you advice on your diet and how to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home.
