Dental Hygiene Treatments

Dental Hygienist Fitzrovia

The best way to maintain the health of your teeth is with regular appointments and good dental hygiene.

Regular dental hygiene appointments are essential and will eliminate any build-ups of tartar and plaque.

During your visit, we will remove all tartar and plaque buildup, and ensure your teeth are fully protected at all times.

Bacterial plaque, a film of multiplying bacteria that adheres to teeth, is the primary cause of gum disease, and if not properly removed, can lead to the formation of calculus (tartar) through saliva mineral precipitation.

Deep Scale and Polish and Stain Removal

A scale and polish is a non-invasive treatment that will remove all traces of tartar, plaque, and bacteria. This treatment will leave your teeth looking and feeling great and also reduce the risk of gum disease.


Root Planning Treatments

Root planning is needed in people with moderate to severe gum disease with deep gum pockets. It involves smoothing and cleaning the surface of the roots of your teeth using a scaling tool.

The treatment removes plaque and bacteria below the gums to strengthen teeth and reduce the risk of gum disease.

Dental hygiene treatment, often referred to as a dental cleaning or prophylaxis, is a procedure performed by our dental hygienist to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, promoting good oral health.

Yes, our dentist can assess your unique situation and offer personalized advice and treatment plans to target the specific causes of your bad breath.

Dental hygiene treatments can remove surface stains, which may improve the appearance of your teeth. However, for significant teeth whitening, you may need additional treatments like professional teeth whitening.

It is generally recommended to have a dental hygiene treatment every six months. However, your dentist may suggest a different schedule based on your specific oral health needs.

To maintain good oral hygiene, brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, use mouthwash if recommended, and maintain a balanced diet low in sugary foods and drinks.

Yes, bad breath can be a symptom of underlying dental problems such as gum disease, cavities, or infections. Identifying and treating these issues can often resolve bad breath concerns.

Treatments for Bad Breath

Bad breath, commonly known as halitosis, can be attributed to various factors, including gum disease, decay, infection, or other related issues. At our dental clinic in Central London, we are committed to identifying the source of bad breath and addressing the underlying problems to provide effective solutions for our patients. By thoroughly investigating the cause, we can help you eliminate this troublesome condition, allowing you to regain confidence in your oral hygiene.

Gum disease is a prevalent cause of bad breath. When plaque builds up along the gum line, it can lead to inflammation and infection, resulting in an unpleasant odor. Our experienced dental professionals in Central London will meticulously examine your oral health, evaluating the condition of your gums and teeth to determine if gum disease is the root cause of your halitosis. By implementing personalized treatment plans, which may include deep cleaning, periodontal therapy, or other appropriate measures, we aim to restore your oral health and alleviate the associated bad breath.

Furthermore, decayed teeth can contribute to foul breath. Cavities or tooth decay create an environment conducive to bacterial growth, emitting an unpleasant smell. At our Central London clinic, we utilize modern diagnostic tools and techniques to identify areas of decay accurately. Following the diagnosis, our skilled dentists will recommend suitable treatments such as fillings or dental crowns to address the decay, thereby eliminating the source of bad breath.

In order to maintain healthy gums, the team at Image Dental Clinic in Fitzrovia advises the removal of the daily build-up of plaque from all surfaces of your teeth by:

Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. Consult with our dentists to determine the best type of toothbrush for you, as many patients use brushes that are either too hard or too large.
Flossing your teeth, as a toothbrush may not always reach the gaps between the teeth or below the gum line.
Avoiding brushing your teeth too vigorously to prevent gum damage. Our dentist or hygienist can demonstrate the correct technique.
Using fluoride toothpaste.

Dental Hygienist Fitzrovia recommends maintaining healthy gums which are characterised by:

  • A pink colour
  • No redness or inflammation
  • No bleeding when brushing or flossing
  • No tenderness or discomfort
  • Failure to remove daily plaque build-up can lead to ‘Gingivitis’, the first stage of gum disease.

What Is Gingivitis?

At Image Dental Clinic, we explain that Gingivitis is caused by sticky bacteria known as ‘plaque’. If not removed by regular brushing & flossing, plaque collects in the small gaps between gums and teeth, leading to symptoms like bleeding when brushing, soreness, and red, puffy, or swollen gums.

What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal Disease is the advanced stage of gum disease, where bacterial infection under the gums affects the bone and tissue supporting the tooth, leading to symptoms like bleeding, swollen and tender gums, bad breath, and pocketing.

Though irreversible, Periodontal disease progression can be slowed down with regular visits to Image Dental Clinic and improved oral hygiene.

It’s recommended to visit your dentist at Image Dental Clinic, Fitzrovia, ideally twice a year. During your check-up, we will:

  • Check for early signs of decay or damage.
  • Examine gums for signs of gum disease using a gentle probe.
  • Conduct oral cancer screenings.
  • Evaluate jaw joint and take X-rays as necessary.
  • Fluoride Treatments

At Image Dental Clinic, we are dedicated to providing exceptional dental care in a comfortable environment, ensuring all patients, including those who are anxious or nervous, receive the best possible treatment.
