How often should I see the hygienist?
How often you see the hygienist is completely dependent on the state of your teeth and gums.
Your dentist and hygienist will decide on a recall based on your current need and the effectiveness of your at home regime.
My gums are bleeding when I brush?
In most cases, gums bleed when they arent being cleaned effectively, and the plaque that is left behind is damaging them.
Come see the dentist and hygienist to assess what the cause of the bleeding gums may be and how best to treat it.
A good start before you come in is to be brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing or using Tepe’s.
