Dental Hygienist Services
Our fully qualified hygienists are on hand to clean teeth and gums by removing calculus, stains and plaque to enhance a healthy, brighter smile.
To keep a healthy mouth, patients are shown by the hygienist how to maintain good daily oral hygiene care for their teeth and gums, including how to select the correct toothbrush best for their mouth, and the use of flossing and interdental brushes to prevent gum disease or bleeding gums.
Regular visits to our hygienist will help to improve dental health and prevent or stabilise periodontal (gum) disease, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth or dental decay.
Our caring team will happily provide oral hygiene instruction, dietary advice, fissure sealants and topical fluoride application, which are all part of our prevention programme. Advice is also available for the care of your children’s teeth.
Our hygiene surgeries are fitted with the very latest equipment including AIR POLISHING technology which gently removes unsightly staining without damaging your teeth.
All our hygienists are qualified to administer local anaesthetic if required for any part of your treatment.
Periodontal (gum Treatments) Treatments
Periodontics is the speciality of dentistry dealing with the gums and underlying bone which support and hold our teeth firmly in place. Gum disease can be prevented with good oral hygiene and regular visits to our hygienist.
Periodontal (gum) disease (which is the loss of bone under the gums that holds our teeth in place in our mouths) is very prevalent in adults, but as there are very few symptoms, many people are unaware of its existence until it is firmly advanced. Signs to look for may include bleeding, sore, swollen or receding gums, bad breath, or sensitive teeth and/ or mobile teeth. Any of these can be signs of gum disease which if caught early can be reversed, or if more advanced the disease can be stabilised, and then bone regeneration techniques may be possible to restore lost bone.
Smoking is a main cause of gum disease and the hygienist will endeavour to help and offer advice with smoking cessation to stabilise the patient's mouth.
Once gum disease is established, different treatments are carried out by the hygienist to deliver the best outcome for the patient's needs with careful scaling and polishing to restore good gum health.
