Preventing gum disease at Clifton Moor Dental Centre

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, caused by the plaque around your teeth, inflaming the gums and resulting in bone loss. Having a professional clean by one of our trained dental hygienists will help prevent this, by removing the plaque stuck to your teeth, to stop the inflammatory process.


Common questions about
dental hygiene

How often should I see a dental hygienist?

Most patients will benefit from two hygiene appointments a year, but more frequent visits may be suitable for you if you suffer with gum disease or periodontitis. Our friendly practice team will be able to advise on an appropriate treatment plan, based on your individual needs.

What will happen during my dental hygiene appointment?

When you come to see our dental hygienists, you will have time to discuss your dental health and receive gentle, individual care. During your appointment, your hygienist will carry out a thorough teeth cleaning, even below the gum line if necessary. They will also carefully check for signs of gum disease or mouth cancer. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, so identifying and treating it as soon as possible will really help you to keep your natural smile.
