Your Dental Hygienist For Better Oral Health In Carlisle

Oral health in the United Kingdom is still a surprisingly serious problem! Diseases of the gums and the tissues that support your teeth are very common in Carlisle too! At York Place Dental, we believe that the best way to treat any dental disease is prevention. At our modern and relaxingly styled practice, your personal dental hygienist will work with you to treat and heal any gum disease, and then through regular ongoing care and monitoring, help you to keep your mouth healthy for life.

One of ways in which we differ from many practices is that your dental therapist won't do "check ups" or a quick "scale and polish". Dental hygiene and therapy are much more than that. Our hygiene team are selected on their ability to empathise and communicate clearly and precisely with you.

It's about earning your trust, getting to know you, finding out what you can and what you can't do for yourself. Only then can our hygiene team create a tailored package of dental hygiene and training in teeth cleaning techniques: to first help cure and then keep dental disease at bay.

Dental Hygienist in Carlisle

We have a highly effective way of putting our dedicated hygiene team at the centre of your preventive care through our Dental Health Assessments. Once, twice or more  often every year, depending on your individual needs, we will invite you to York Place Dental for a comprehensive forty minute long Dental Health Assessment. At this appointment, your personal hygienist will assess the oral health and cleanliness of your mouth, and carry out any care needed to keep you healthy. Sometimes we will give you a few pointers to get you gently back on track with your teeth hygiene. Your dentist will then join you at the chairside and carry out a full dental examination, having first discussed your dental health with your hygienist and of course, you.

It’s a single visit, putting you and your dental health in the spotlight.

We have a strong preventive dentistry ethos and always include some gentle mentoring in good oral health care in these appointments. Using the latest technology and assessment tools, our team will assess your mouth and gums. We also look for the risk factors associated with mouth cancer, dental decay and gum disease.

Treating Periodontal Disease in Carlisle

Treating Periodontal Disease

Periodontal, or gum, disease is a chronic infection of the gums and the tissues that support your teeth that stays with you for life. It's caused by mouth bacteria sticking to your teeth and gums. You may be unaware that the infection causes your body remove some of the bone that supports the teeth. This erosion is generally painless, and because of this most people are unaware that they have it. There are thought to be genetic factors at work, which predispose about 20% of the UK population to extra risk of losing their teeth prematurely through gum disease.

The classic signs of gum disease are bleeding gums, bad breath and tastes, shrinking gums and wobbly teeth. Risk factors which make gum disease more likely to occur or worsen when it's established, include: smoking, being overweight, diabetes, stress and depression.

Treatment of gum disease can save your teeth as long as it is detected soon enough, and of course we check each and every patient that we see. Our hygienists will work with you to clean off the harmful bacteria. Our oral health advice will give you tips on how you can manage risk factors such as smoking and health, and crucially, how your teeth cleaning routines can protect teeth and gums more effectively at home using the right tools.

Our patients with periodontal disease are reviewed and treated every three months and the progress of their disease is carefully monitored using the latest techniques.
