A dental hygienist assesses the health of your gums and gently removes any plaque and tartar caused by food you leave behind which combines with bacteria naturally found in your mouth. Regular dental hygiene treatments need to be an essential part of everyone’s oral health regime.
Your hygienist will also be able to detect the earliest signs of gum 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!
