Teeth & Gum Hygiene in Lisburn
Give your teeth a MOT
At Affinity Dental Care in Lisburn, we believe that good oral hygiene is the key to excellent dental health and is vital in eliminating gum disease and decay which can eventually lead to tooth loss.
Our highly trained hygienists work with you and your dentist to ensure healthy gums, fresh breath and outstanding oral health.
A hygienist’s main aim is to prevent and treat gum disease. A hygienist's job is to show you the best ways to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky, whitish deposit that forms on your teeth when bacteria mixes with food and saliva. The bacteria in plaque can produce gum disease which can lead to bleeding gums, gum shrinkage and ultimately tooth loss.
