Through verbal explanation and visual demonstration, you will be taught how to recognize ill-health in your mouth and adopt daily techniques and habits to help regain and maintain a healthy mouth.
We will talk about nutrition and oral health and how they are key contributors in your over-all health. The condition of your oral cavity also affects your digestion, having a direct impact on your nutritional status. Dental nutritional counseling is an intervention to prevent disease by assessing your dietary habits and informing you about the relationship between diet and oral health.
Cleaning or Scaling teeth involves the gentle removal of plaque and tartar situated above and below the gum line. This will aid in the treatment of gum and bone conditions, (gingivitis and periodontal disease), that will help support the state of your mouth as well as your overall health. The amount of time and cost required to complete a dental cleaning, will depend on the condition of your gums and the amount of tartar build-up you have.
A selective dental polishing traditionally follows a dental scaling but can also be done between regular cleanings for special occasions. This will brighten your smile and stimulate the blood flow in your gums, leaving them massaged. Tooth polishing also removes stain caused by drinking coffee, tea, colas, wine and smoking and is excellent in removing oral bio-film.
