Dental Hygiene

123The dental Hygienist is a professional especially trained in the prevention and treatment of gum (periodontal) disease, which is the main cause of adult tooth loss.

During the Hygienist appointments you will be given advice on all aspects of oral health including treatment and prevention of gum disease, receding gums, tooth wear and brushing techniques. The hygienist will also check the appearance of the gums, see if there is any plaque or bleeding, and remove any hard deposits (calculus) and stains by scaling and polishing the teeth.

The Hygienist appointments are usually pain free but if needed anaesthetic creams or solutions can be used to ease off any discomfort.
