We firmly believe in the principle that prevention is better than cure and provide the best advice to prevent problems developing in the first place. Our caring Hygienists are the cornerstone of our preventive programme as gum disease can cause bad breath, bleeding and in the long term tooth loss, which is why good oral hygiene is the most effective way to help maintain a healthy mouth.
Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing.
Teeth can become stained and discoloured by drinking tea, coffee or red wine amongst other things. Air Polishing allows us to remove that surface staining quickly and effectively and can be booked as a separate treatment, or can be part of your regular dental hygiene programme, to give you a much brighter and healthy smile.
An important aspect of the hygienist's role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.
It is recommended that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.
