Our two highly experienced hygienists are vital members of our team who focus on preventing and treating gum disease by encouraging top notch oral hygiene.
Why you need hygiene treatment
Gum disease is a very common problem that causes inflammation, soreness and bleeding and, if not treated, it can lead to tooth loss. It develops due to the accumulation of plaque which can eventually harden and turn into stubborn tartar.
How it helps
- Our hygienists thoroughly clean your teeth and remove unwelcome deposits by ‘scaling and polishing’. Scaling gets rid of the hard tartar that brushing alone cannot remove, as well as food debris and soft plaque. This treatment leaves teeth feeling fresh and looking shiny, and discourages more plaque from settling.
- Our hygienists will also show you the best way to clean your teeth at home with toothbrushes, interdental brushes and floss. In addition, they offer advice about eating a tooth-friendly diet and provide smoking cessation tips.
We offer the KaVo air polishing system, which blasts away more stubborn stains, such as those caused by smoking. This treatment lifts even the toughest stains, both on the surface and between the teeth.
We can help treat chronic periodontitis with full mouth disinfection, which removes bacteria and hard deposits from the root surfaces. This intensive treatment involves scaling and root planning, and the use of an antibacterial mouthwash.
More useful information
Seeing our hygienists will not only help protect your teeth, it will also be beneficial for your overall well-being as poor oral health has been linked to serious conditions, including heart disease and strokes.Back to the Treatments page » Fees List » Gallery »
