Dental Hygiene

The dental hygienists at Dentistry at Market Mall are dedicated to your oral health. We recommend that you visit your hygienist at least once every six months.


Good oral hygiene means a mouth that not only looks healthy but smells healthy. Bleeding gums, bad breath and inflamed gums can all be indicative of gum disease. 

What is gum disease?

Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth.

If you want to reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease, an oral care regimen that includes proper brushing, flossing and regular dental hygiene appointments, is very important.Plaque is a colourless film that builds up on your teeth and contains millions of bacteria. If left untreated it can cause gingivitis, periodontal disease and decay.

Periodontal disease and decay are more advanced and need to be treated by a dental professional to stop their progression. 

Gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease, is reversible with professional treatment and good oral home care.

At home prevention

In between regular visits to the dentist, make sure you take these simple steps to greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems.

  • Brush twice a day and floss daily
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks
  • Use a toothpaste that includes fluoride 
  • Rinse with a fluoride mouthwash 

If your gums are red, inflamed or if they bleed when you brush, this may be a sign of gum disease; book an appointment with your dentist or hygienist today.
