The job of our hygienists is to professionally clean and polish your teeth (this is sometimes called ‘scaling and polishing’). Their job also involves educating patients about the best ways to help keep their teeth plaque-free.
Combining regular hygienist appointments with your own home care is the best way to maintain a healthy mouth, keep your teeth strong and give you fresher breath. Neglecting your gums can lead to poor gum health, which can cause cause heart problems later on in life.
Hygienist training is focused on preventing gum disease and tooth decay by removing deposits of tartar that build up on the teeth. By teaching you how to prevent it collecting on your teeth in the future, you will be able to slow the process of gum disease.
Booking hygienist appointments for your children will help keep their teeth clean and help to educate them on the best way to brush.
A great way to reduce tooth decay is to limit the amount of sugar in your diet, as well as the amount of times you eat throughout the day.
We offer comprehensive dental care on a private basis for adults, including prevention and cosmetic dentistry. You can choose to pay for your dental care as you receive it or join Denplan, a budgeting scheme that allows you to make monthly payments.
