Dental Practice In The Heart Of Lisburn

Air Flow


Dental biofilm, commonly known as plaque, is the main aetiological factor for dental decay, gum disease (periodontitis) and peri-implant infections.

Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes. Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures such as Guided Biofilm Therapy keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral and systemic health.

Ask any dentist and they will tell you that when it comes to maintaining oral heath of patients, it’s the hygienist, not the dentist, who is the most important person in the practice. Yet many patients still don’t make an appointment to see their hygienist when they visit their dentist.
