At Chase Dental Care, we believe preventive care is paramount when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our patients.

Gum disease has been clinically associated with major conditions like heart disease, strokes, diabetes and respiratory infection 

Regular visits to the dentist and hygienist are also essential to ensure that any oral condition can be caught early and acted upon. Many times gum disease is painless, start below the gum line and are not visible to the untrained eye – regular checks by our trained and experienced hygienist are essential to ensure that problems do not go unchecked.

Previously, a dentist had to see a patient prior to prescribing hygiene treatment. This meant that you would have been examined to see whether you had oral problems that warranted further treatment or investigation.

However, there is a limited scope of what a dental hygienist does and cannot do. A hygienist can see you to provide oral hygiene advice, remove stain, tartar, bacterial deposits and other debris. In relation to gums, the hygienist can advise you on the progression of gum disease, but more advanced conditions need to be assessed by a dentist and the hygienist then continues treatment under the prescription of the dentist.

Dental hygienists cannot diagnose or give the prognosis (the likely outcome) of diseases such as decaying or broken teeth or prescribe antibiotics, painkillers or any other drugs to alleviate symptoms. Visits to hygienists is not a substitute for full dental examinations.

Please note there is a non-refundable £25 deposit required for hygiene appointments
