At Arnold Dental Nottingham, we care for your mouth, gums and general wellbeing. We have a dedicated hygiene service that promotes the health of your teeth and gums through regular hygiene treatment and oral hygiene education. Maintaining your dental wellbeing is vital and your hygiene examination forms an essential part of your healthy living regime.
Your mouth deserves to receive professional care. Our hygienists Debbie and Lesa and our therapist Kate are skilled in providing just that. It is also important to emphasise that hygiene therapy may also reduce the risk of developing several serious medical conditions, especially as research links gum disease to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and premature births. A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled.
Debbie, Carol and Charlotte’s expertise is in promoting oral health and giving you the skills and the confidence to make a real difference to the health of your mouth. The care that they provide forms a central part of how Arnold Dental in Nottingham aims to keep you healthy through our preventive approach.
We look forward to working with you to produce a comfortable and healthy mouth, which will significantly reduce your need for dental treatment in the long term. Periodontal (gum) therapy not only treats existing disease but also prevents future disease.
Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bleeding gums. People often think this is normal but it is almost always a sign of gum disease.
- Loose teeth
- Gum recession (longer teeth). This often results in increased tooth sensitivity.
- Bad tastes
- Bad breath
- Drifting teeth
