Gum Health And Stain Removal

The key to being able to keep your teeth for a lifetime is looking after your dental health and making sure your teeth and gums are clean and healthy. A clean smile is generally a healthy smile.

Many people are at risk of developing multiple dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay and even mouth cancer. You can reduce this risk significantly by following an excellent oral hygiene routine and attending regular hygienist appointments.


Gum Disease

Gum disease is a very common condition among adults where the gums become swollen and sore. Gum disease occurs when bacteria from unremoved plaque and tartar starts to irritate the gums.

There are two different types of gum disease – gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the early stage and with developing a good oral hygiene routine, can be reversed. However, if it is left untreated, it turns into periodontitis which is a more serious condition. Periodontitis can be managed to stop it from getting worse.

The effects of gum disease can be bleeding gums, receding gums and even tooth loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Hygienists Do?

A hygienist will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth. This treatment will remove any plaque and tartar build-up and can even reduce the amount of staining on the surface of the teeth.

More importantly, a hygienist will teach you how to correctly look after your teeth and gums at home to maintain the clean feeling between appointments. The correct toothbrushing and flossing technique is vital for keeping your teeth free of plaque and tartar.


A dental hygienist can support you with the following care:

  • Removal of staining
  • Removal of plaque and tartar
  • Detailed assessment of gum health
  • Assessment for plaque, which can cause tooth decay
  • Assessment of areas prone to bleeding
  • Educating you on preventing plaque from developing
  • Tooth sensitivity management

After years of not being able to eat solid food, because of bad decay and alot of tooth discomfort, i decide to go and have a consultation on having implant retained dentures. How professional all the staff were, and after having my remaining teeth removed and 4 implants in the top and 2 in the bottom, i can now eat properly and i am pain free. The photo,s speak for themselves.. The best money i have ever spent. Highly recommend stella maris dental
