Hygiene

Protects against gum disease and bad breath

The best way to prevent painful future dental problems is by ensuring you maintain healthy gums. Regular hygienist appointments are a chance for you to voice any dental concerns you may have and stop plaque spreading before it causes gum disease.

Preventative hygiene measures make it far less likely that you will have to undergo corrective dental treatment, or suffer from adult tooth loss. During your 30 minute appointment, your gums will be examined and any stains on your teeth will be removed via a scale and polish treatment. If you suffer from bad breath, your hygienist will look for the underlying cause.

When we brush our teeth, we don’t always manage to remove all the food deposits from our last meal. When food deposits linger, they can cause tooth decay and lead to plaque. Detecting these food deposits and removing them before your teeth begin to decay will reduce your chances of having fillings. Treating plaque before it becomes gum disease means you won’t have to undergo corrective gum therapy.

Your hygienist will advise you as the best tooth cleaning techniques to ensure you help yourself to keep your teeth cleaner and healthier.

FAQs

Everything you need to know

How often should I visit the hygienist?

The hygienist and dentist will advise you on the frequency of hygiene visits required. We have four membership plans available with 2,3,4 and 6 hygiene visits included per year. The hygienist is also available to non-plan patients on a private fee paying basis. We believe visiting your hygienist on a regular basis, will help protect you from serious dental problems.

Do you offer direct access hygiene appointments?

Yes, we do. A direct access hygiene appointment means you can see a hygienist without first having to see a dentist.

Scaling will remove hard deposits from your teeth that are difficult to get rid of using just a tooth brush. This treatment help prevent plaque from forming.

What sort of advice will I receive?
