Oral Hygiene Clinic
- We encourage regular appointments for optimum oral care.
Define Clinic are dedicated to the oral hygiene of our patients, and encourage regular appointments for optimum oral care. For healthy teeth, comfortable gums, and fresh breath, routine treatment with our dental hygienists are vital to achieve your perfect smile.
It is now widely recognised that the presence of gum disease (periodontitis) is closely linked to the onset and worsening of other serious systemic diseases, such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s and premature births. The ‘holisitic’ approach to health starts with excellent oral care and oral health. Gum disease is often associated with bleeding from the gums but sometimes there are no obvious signs until it is too late to reverse the damaging effects to the bone holding your teeth in. So a long life of health and youthful appearance begins with the care of your teeth and gums.
The beauty of your smile also begins with regular and excellent dental hygiene treatments. A beautiful smile always begins with thorough cleaning and polishing, and then long term maintenance. We offer a range of treatments from a powder based ‘jet’ polish to refresh your smile right to deep cleaning procedures to protect and improve health under the gums. Regular maintenance visits, like regular visits to the hairdresser or for a manicure should be part of your health and beauty regime and we recommend 3 to 4 visits every year from the age of 16 onwards.
At your visit to Define Clinic’s dental hygienists, you will be shown how to properly care for your teeth (and any alignment systems you may have) to prevent poor technique and give your teeth the longevity they deserve. Having your hygiene technique assessed will provide the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health, and our hygienists will be able to offer you advice to educate you on achieving a complete and thorough clean at home.
Aligning and correcting crooked teeth with orthodontics is a great way to improve the health of your teeth and gums, but your oral maintenance becomes ever more important when undergoing treatment. Learning how to properly clean and care for your orthodontic system will make sure your treatment is especially effective, and reduce the risk of infections or hidden damage to your teeth. Our dental hygienists can make sure you’re completely confident and equipped to care for your braces out of our clinic.
A visit to the dental hygienist isn’t just an education in lifelong oral hygiene. Our hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth and fixed appliances, to remove scale deposits, plaque, and any staining that might have occurred. We will also screen your teeth and gums for early signs of gum disease or tooth decay, that can prevent future dental repairs and painful infections. Regular visits to Define Clinic for oral hygiene appointments will provide confidence in gaining healthy, fresh breath, and promote healthy teeth and gums that look and feel fantastic.
