Good oral hygiene is essential to maintain your oral health and can even have an impact on your general health. We recommend that you visit our dental hygienist every 6 months for a scale and polish. Our hygienist will provide a thorough cleaning and will educate you on how to maintain your oral health at home and which products will be most suited to you to achieve this. With regular visits to our hygienist it means that you have regular checks on your teeth and we find you are less likely to require extensive dental treatments long term.
Our hygienist provides both general cleanings to adults and children, and more extensive periodontal treatments where needed. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a common condition and if left untreated results in patient’s losing their teeth. Deep cleanings or root debridement, involves removing the calculus (tartar) from teeth and below the gum level and restoring healthy gums. Our hygienist will then set up a programme for you with regular visits to maintain your oral health and set up a simple protocol for you to follow at home.
