“Meet Rebecca Your Dental Therapist”

Hello my name is Rebecca and I am one of the Dental Therapists here at Dentistry on the Clyde.

Today I am going to talk to you about what’s involved in our hygiene appointments.  So first of all we would take a plaque and bleeding score which measures how much plaque and bleeding you have in your mouth.  From this we can then tell where maybe there are some areas that need to be improved on.

After this, if necessary we would take a pocket chart, this is to measure any more gum disease, we then take future pocket charts to each appointment which would hopefully ensure that the gum disease is stabilising.

We then remove all the hard and soft plaque from your teeth.  The hardened up plaque is called calculous and this is obviously impossible for you to remove at home, so we would remove this with our hand scalers and ultra-sonic scalers.  By removing this hopefully the inflammation that you have in your gums would hopefully settle down and the gum disease would stabilise.  After this we would polish and remove any stains, we would do with this an air polisher which Sarah has shown you in a previous video.  It’s really good because it gets right in between the teeth unlike a normal polish.

After this we would go over some oral hygiene information.  This might just be tooth brushing, electric tooth brushing which we can do in surgery, floss, inter dental brushes, this is all tailored to your individual needs,  Hopefully then we can get your gums looking healthy and get you feeling better about yourself.
