at thegallery Dental Practice in Buckingham
More teeth are lost to gum disease than tooth decay. Many people are unaware that they have gum disease as it can be painless and can have very few symptoms.
Regular visits to the hygienist will identify any gum disease that may be present and will also treat the disease and prevent it from reoccurring.
At thegallery, our fully experienced hygienists will carry out a thorough gum screening process to detect any periodontal (gum) disease. The most important role of the hygienist is to educate the patient on the most effective oral hygienist techniques to help prevent gum disease, using a wide variety of oral hygiene aids. Our hygienists will also carry out a range of scaling and polishing procedures tailored to the individual patient’s needs.
Our dental hygienists are dedicated to providing preventative oral healthcare and information for all ages. Advice will be given on diet and fluoride to help prevent tooth decay and a whole range of advice can be given to help treat and prevent dental sensitivity.
I have just attended my first hygienist appointment at the surgery and I came away in awe of the information supplied to me about how to look after my teeth, I cannot stress the difference between this visit and the ones I have been to in the past at other surgeries.
