How can you prevent gum disease
As part of your regular care you should see Elkie our Hygiene Therapist periodically to help maintain the health of yours gums.
Each of us as an individual will need a different frequency of visit. We all build up stains and hard tartar under and around the gum to a lesser or greater degree.
This tartar can trap bacteria under the gum line causing damage to our gums and bone and this can lead to tooth loss from periodontal disease.
You might need to visit the Hygiene Therapist only once or twice a year, however, some people may need to visit Elkie 3 or 4 times a year depending on how healthy your gums are.
Don’t forget to book your Hygiene appointment with Elkie when you book your next consultation with Anthony.
