Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a dental hygienist who will help to remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing. An important aspect of the hygienist's role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
Dental hygiene at Park Road Dental Centre also forms part of treating gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.
It is recommend that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.
If we do find you have some dental problems that need treating, we will provide you with all the treatment options available to restore your smile and prevent tooth loss wherever possible.
Dental decay is a very common problem and if it is spotted early our dental team can be treated easily. When acid attacks the teeth, it can wear away the enamel and dentine, creating a hole in the tooth. So long as the decay is not too serious, we can remove the decayed area and restore your tooth with white, tooth-coloured fillings.
We also offer a full range of restorative treatments, including root canal treatment for teeth that have become infected, and restorations for tooth loss or tooth damage, including crowns and bridges, dental implants and tooth rebuilding using the same composite material that is used in our white fillings.
