Our dental hygienists work alongside our dentists, providing important preventative advice and treatment to help patients with gum problems or who simply need extra time and advice on looking after their gums and teeth. The treatment carried out by the dental hygienist includes removal of plaque and calculus that is difficult to remove by brushing and flossing alone.
Preventing gum disease
Sometimes you might need additional help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. This is when your dentist may prescribe treatment to improve the health of your gums over a series of Dental Hygiene visits. This dental treatment combined with oral care advice can help stabilise and control gum disease.
Cleaner Brighter teeth
Once you have been examined by a dentist to check your oral health, we will advise whether a dental hygienist visit would be of benefit and often. Clients have said that regular appointments with the dental hygienist have helped improve their confidence by having a cleaner, fresher mouth. Most of our cleaning is now done using state of the art AIRFLOW® technology – you can find out more about this on our Airflow page.
Reduced dental costs
Maintaining your oral health through regular cleaning and polishing of your teeth can also reduce the need for expensive dental treatment.
