A dental hygienist assesses the health of your teeth and gums and gently removes any plaque and tartar caused by bacteria collecting in areas inside your mouth.
Your hygienist will also be able to detect the earliest signs of dental problems such as gingivitis, so the appropriate treatment can be provided before any problems develop into something more difficult to manage like periodontitis.
Each hygiene appointment will follow a three-step process:
Your hygienist will give a thorough inspection of your gums, noting any signs of inflammation, swelling or deposits of plaque and calculus.
Scaling and polishing
Using the latest equipment, we will professionally clean any plaque and calculus from your teeth, followed by a ‘jet polish’ to remove any tough stains, giving you back your pearly white smile!
Your hygienist will give you advice on preventing plaque from building up in the first place. We feel that prevention is the most important aspect of your care with us!
Regular dental hygiene treatments go a long way to keeping your teeth, tongue, gums, and entire mouth clean. Improving your plaque control means fewer visits to the dentist and hygienist, which is our ultimate goal!
