Our amazing dental hygienists offer an array of important and effective services to help you enjoy good oral health. From the treatment of gum disease and bad breath, to preventative measures to keep decay away, seeing a dental hygienist has a host of benefits for patients of all ages.
Dental hygiene for adults
Even if you have bright, healthy teeth, you can still benefit from seeing a dental hygienist on a regular basis. Hygienists provide powerful cleaning to polish your teeth, remove surface stains and take bacteria out of the mouth and they are also heavily involved in the treatment of existing oral health issues, including gum disease and bad breath using methods such as scale and polish treatment. Scale and polish is a really intensive and effective cleaning method, which is used for removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and gum line and giving the teeth a lovely glossy glow.
If you have gum disease or persistent bad breath, we will recommend regular sessions with our dentists and dental hygienists to treat the problem and prevent further issues in the future.
Dental hygienists can also offer advice about nutrition and diet, giving up smoking and oral hygiene and they are on hand to answer any of your oral health queries.
Dental hygiene for children
Seeing a dental hygienist is hugely beneficial for children, especially those who have early signs of decay. Our hygienists provide preventative dental treatments, including fissure sealant treatment and fluoride varnish, to strengthen and protect the teeth from decay and prevent children from suffering from toothache and sensitivity.
