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

I've been a regular dental patient at Stella Maris Dental practice for the past 3 years, and it's been the best experience ever. In terms of treatment plan, customers services, care and professional nursing staff and top quality treatments by the most experienced and qualified dental practitioners. What I like the most about Stella Maris is the feeling of being part of a "family practice", which comes from their attention to details, care centred around the patient well being and satisfaction throughout the entire treatment period. I strongly recommend Stella Maris practice for anyone looking to brighten their smile. P.S. Special thanks to Mr Namih, Hygienist and caring nursing staff.

Have been going to Stella Maris now for over 5 years. Can honestly say they have all looked after me since I first started going. Dr Namih has been amazing doing all of my treatments. He has always made sure that I’m comfortable and never in any discomfort. I’m so grateful I get to smile feeling confident and that’s all down to his work. I was so scared of dentists after my first experience elsewhere & now I will never go anywhere else. You are all like family & I’m lucky to have found somewhere that treats my dental health so well!

I have just completed a 19 week course of Invisalign for straightening of upper and lower teeth. Plus whitening and composite bonding to three teeth that were chipped. I feel that Hema gave a fabulous service, she demonstrated professionalism, integrity and perfectionism throughout my treatment. I have been delighted with the results and have recommended to family and friends who are interested in having their teeth improved. Sarah and the reception team are extremely helpful and personable. It is always a pleasure to go to Stella Maris Dental for their care and service.

For several years, I had been embarrassed and self-conscious about my teeth. I had lost several teeth over the years and those left were badly discoloured. I am of a generation when dentists would fill your teeth for no reason or take them out. I was always self-conscious when talking to people about how unsightly my teeth looked. Well not any more I have the biggest smile in the world thanks to Dr Namhi and his fabulous team. Stella Martis came recommended by a friend of a friend and the rest is history. I have had the works, fillings, crowns, veneers, and implants over the last 18 months. I can honestly say the difference it has made to my confidence and wellbeing is incredible. Having the initial consultation with Dr Namhi, he took his time to explain what was involved, putting a plan together, prioritising what needed to be done first. I am glad to say that treatment was relatively painless, how he administers an injection without causing pain is fabulous. Every step of the way Dr Namhi continued to explain fully the treatment for that visit and what the following appointment would entail. I would always receive a call the following morning to make sure you are alright after treatment and if I had any problems to call them. All staff are so friendly, courteous and welcoming. It is always a pleasure to visit the surgery, it is like visiting family. I would highly recommend Stella Martis Practice to anybody who is looking for a dentist. My sincere thanks has got to go to the dental nurses, receptionists, hygienist, but I have to say my personal thanks has got to be to Dr Namhi himself who has transformed my life totally, his patience, precision, expertise, skill, and friendliness is showing in my smile every day.
