The dental hygiene treatment we offer at Balham Lodge Dental Practice is designed to take care of your gums, ensure fresh breath and keep your teeth plaque-free. Our hygienist’s clean teeth using professional equipment and paste as part of routine hygiene check-ups that everyone should attend at regular intervals.
Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush could be a sign of gum disease, also known as gingivitis. When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth. This can lead to tooth loss, so keeping your gums healthy is essential. Luckily, gum disease and tooth loss can be avoided.
Our hygienists will show you how to look after your teeth and gums and give you advice on brushing on and between your teeth. It is recommended that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.
We look forward to looking after your smile!
