Our experienced dental hygienists, will help keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy, as well as sharing this knowledge so you can develop an effective dental care strategy at home. They will adopt a gentle approach so all the treatments are carried out efficiently with your comfort in mind.
One of the dental hygiene services we provide is to spruce up your teeth with a ‘scale and polish’- removing stubborn tartar and plaque, as well as leaving them feeling extra clean. They will also check for signs of gum disease as this tooth threatening condition can cause serious damage and often goes unnoticed.
The hygienist will teach you how to keep on top of your dental hygiene with techniques and advice about how to use dental tools, such as floss and interdental brushes. They will also make sure you know which foods are kind to your teeth and which more harmful snacks to avoid.
We are also skilled in treating more advanced gum disease known as periodontitis. If you suffer from this condition then a three monthly visit to the see us for hygiene treatment and an extensive home maintenance programme is advisable.
We can protect teeth by applying fissure sealants, helping to shield them from bacteria – an ideal treatment for younger teeth when they first start to emerge. In fact, it is a good idea to introduce your children to the dental hygienist from an early age so they can develop lifelong tooth care skills.
Regularly visiting our qualified hygienist will help ensure the continued health of your teeth and gums, as well as protecting your overall well-being because poor gum health has been linked to more serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
