Hygiene treatments for healthy teeth with your dentist in Chelsea
Not only is having your teeth professionally cleaned a great chance at feeling better about your smile, you are actually doing something great for the health of your teeth as well.
Our professionals scale and polish your teeth with great attention and care, allowing for a positive experience to be had whilst making a huge impact. We recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist in Chelsea at least 2 times a year for a healthy smile and potentially more than that if you are prone to plaque and bacteria build up or you have other complications with your smile that warrant further professional care.
Cleaning your teeth isn’t the only factor that needs to be considered when you come in to see your dentist in Chelsea. We also want to make sure that there are no detrimental changes that have been occurring between our consultations. It may be that different professionals are needed to perform these two tasks; it really depends on the nature of the area that you need to make sure that the health of your teeth and gums are maintained.
A dentist in Chelsea will ensure that you feel confident and comfortable with whatever is going on during every consultation by first sitting down and talking with you about how you feel about the health of your smile and if there is anything that needs to be addressed in your opinion. They will further go on to explain what they will do and if you are interested, explain the use of each tool, how it is used and the importance behind this.
This can help some of our patients who are a little apprehensive of the dental chair, for others, they don’t mind. By getting to know you during previous appointments, we are able to determine what approach is best suited for maximum relaxation and enjoyment on your side.
How is a cleaner mouth a healthier one?
Your teeth are in constant war with the bacteria that is always present in your mouth. This is why it is so important to arm your teeth with all the tools it needs so that your armour, or the enamel, remains strong.
This is also why it is important to align teeth correctly and to strengthen or even remove teeth that are weaker. Your teeth work all together to maintain ultimate oral health.
Even when you rinse your mouth out with water and brush your teeth twice a day as is recommended, you may find that some hard to reach places can harbour food debris and bacteria.
Over time, the bacteria and debris can cause bad breath and plaque can accumulate. Over time, plaque hardens to tartar and this is very difficult to remove, even for professionals.
These harmful substances break down the enamel on your teeth and cause cavities which reduce the overall health of your mouth. We all want you to enjoy healthy teeth for 100 years, so by keeping them clean and looking their best, you are giving your smile the best shot it has at a long and healthy life.
