Reduce your chances of needing future dental treatment
Our aim is to prevent dental problems from happening. The hygiene therapy care provided by our hygienists forms a central part of how Harwood Dental Care aims to keep you healthy. Our hygienists are oral health educators and they look forward to working with you to achieve 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.
Your mouth deserves to receive professional hygiene care and it’s 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, bacterial lung disease, diabetes, premature births and low birth-weight babies. A staggering 90 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives but with good dental and hygiene care the risks can be easily controlled.
