Q: What is hygiene treatment?
A: Periodontal (gum) disease can cause bad breath, pain and in severe cases tooth loss. Hygiene treatment is the process of improving oral hygiene and professional cleaning of the teeth to remove plaque and built up tartar/calculus. Regular dental attendance and good oral hygiene can help prevent this. If you have signs of gum disease such as bleeding gums, pain or bad breath/taste then you may require treatment.
