Looking after your dental hygiene at Mansion House

<highlight-peru>Often referred to as polishing or scaling, a thorough clean of your teeth at regular intervals is a great support to maintaining your overall good dental health.<highlight-peru>

Our dentists here in the City of London carry out the treatment as part of your routine dental appointment. And if you are considering dental implants, cosmetic or orthodontic treatment, you will begin your treatment with a dental hygiene appointment.

Our dentists will also assist in teaching brushing and flossing techniques that most effectively remove plaque – the primary cause of gum disease. This forms a key aspect of our preventative approach to your dental wellbeing.

An effective option for preventing tooth decay and gum disease

<highlight-peru>Gum disease is one of the most common dental ailments, yet it is also one of the easiest ailments to avoid, by following good dental care habits and regular visits to your dentist and dental hygienist.<highlight-peru>

Plaque is a film of bacteria that forms continually on the gum and teeth surfaces. While plaque itself is not actively attacking your gums or teeth, over time, it will accumulate and create inflammation, which can lead to bleeding and tiny open wounds in your gums, which can become infected. Hygienist cleans will remove the plaque stuck to your teeth, to stop the inflammatory process.

If not removed, plaque can cause gum disease, often leading to tooth and bone loss and painful abscesses. Your first sign of gum disease may be tenderness and some light bleeding when you brush your teeth. Please visit your dentist if this happens – you may only need a simple cleaning to set you on the path to good dental health.

Reviews that make us smile

At Mansion House, we aim to provide the highest standard of dental care in a friendly, modern, comfortable and conveniently located environment. Because patient satisfaction means everything to us.

Very very good dental practice, the staff were amazing. Initially felt very nervous due to bad previous experiences with other dentists. However, they made me feel very comfortable right from the off and provided information on the treatment options well and very clearly without all the complicated jargon. Would 100% recommend them to everyone. They have reinstalled my trust in the dental profession.
