Dental Hygiene from Bow House in Tring, Hertfordshire
We always encourage and support our patients in practising good dental hygiene on a daily basis, but as teeth are rarely perfectly uniform there are usually places that are difficult to clean, and where bacteria and plaque can develop even with careful brushing and flossing.
Bow House dental hygiene therapists are highly-qualified and skilled in delivering professional teeth cleaning for our patients. A regular scale-and-polish will keep your teeth beautifully clean and healthy, greatly reducing the risk of developing harmful plaque and unsightly tartar. This treatment is important not only for the appearance and longevity of your teeth but for the health of your gums, which can otherwise become diseased, leading to tooth loss.
During a routine dental hygiene appointment, your therapist will use an ultrasonic scaler to gently remove plaque and any buildup of tartar. Dental floss may also be used where necessary. After your teeth are hygienically clean, a soft round rubber cup is used to polish the surface of your teeth, leaving them visibly cleaner and smooth to the touch.
