Healthy gums are essential to a healthy smile.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss. By taking the right care of your gums you will reduce the risk of tooth loss as well as prevent bad breath, bleeding gums and discolouration. At TWDC we focus on preventing issues in order to maintain better long-term dental health.

Regular hygiene appointments remove the build-up of calculus (tartar) that can irritate your gums causing them to bleed. Bleeding gums (gingivitis) is a predecessor to gum disease (periodontitis) and if left untreated can lead to wobbly teeth and eventually tooth loss.

If you have bleeding gums then we would advise you to book for a consultation with one of our dentists to assess the health of your gums and look at what treatments can best solve your issue.

At a hygiene appointment, you will have a complete gum health check, followed by cleaning guidance tailored to your needs. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned using the latest equipment to ensure the highest standards, in the most comfortable way. Your teeth are then polished to remove any staining and to restore their natural shine.

We offer 3 different hygiene services:

Routine maintenance

This covers all the necessary treatment to help maintain gum health and prevent gum disease.

Enhanced services

This option includes the same treatment as the routine maintenance option but is for patients who require more time to accomplish the same level of care. This may be because it is their first hygiene appointment in several years, or because there are more complex issues present that require more time.

This is also an option for those who would like a greater level of polishing using our Velopex AquaCare which helps give an enhanced shine to your smile.

Gum disease (periodontitis)

If gum disease is found to be present at a dental appointment, then we will recommend a course of treatment specifically to treat gum disease. This usually involves appointments on a regular basis for intensive treatment to stabilise the gum disease. The duration and frequency of the course of treatment can vary, but is typically 12-18 months.

Regular hygiene appointments are included in our dental plans.
