Andrew’s story

My bleeding gums told me I needed to do something – and the hygienist team at East Park Dental put me back on the path to good health. They not only cleaned me up, but put a plan in place to make sure that my gums don’t deteriorate further in the years to come.

Frequently asked questions

My dentist cleans my teeth at the end of every appointment – why should I see the hygienist instead?

Hygienist appointments give you access to the gold standard of gum care – it’s a longer appointment dedicated to the care of your gums. Our hygienists are expert at treating gum problems and giving helpful advice to stop future gum disease and decay in its tracks.

Does my bad breath mean I have gum disease?

Not always - but it can be a sign of gum disease and you should have it checked out by your dentist. The treatment could be as simple as a thorough clean plus some oral hygiene advice, or you may need more extensive treatment.

What can the hygienist do to help me get rid of the staining on my teeth?

We’ll do a Scale and Polish to remove all the visible staining, cleaning the more awkward stains with specialist stain removal.

I’ve been told I have gum disease. Does this mean all my teeth are going to fall out?

If they’re left untreated, your teeth can become loose and eventually fall out or cause you pain, so early diagnosis is important through regular dental check ups. Even if you’ve been told you have gum disease, it’s not the end. Treatment and help to achieve a really good clean every day at home can stop further bone loss.

Is there more than one type of gum disease?

Yes – the most common is gingivitis – which can be caused by poor brushing habits. We look for bleeding gums as an sign of this, and if it’s caught early it’s easy to treat and rectify.

Can I avoid getting gum disease?

When it comes to gum disease, prevention is definitely better than cure! Good brushing and daily cleaning between the teeth with flossing is the best way to keep your gums healthy. Your East Park Dental Hygienist in Northampton can give you all the advice you need and show how to make this all easier.
