Visiting a dental hygienist is an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy long term. Studies show that people who visit the hygienist are much less likely to lose their teeth from gum disease than those that don't.
Gum disease is entirely preventable.
Its treatment will include regular visits seeing the dental hygienist for treatment and working with us to help improve and maintain your dental health. Frequency and intervals of appointments will be discussed with you.
Making an appointment with our dental hygienist is easy, please ask us to make you an appointment. Private charges will apply.
If you have excessive staining on your teeth, recently had a brace removed or a special occasion coming up, why not treat yourself to hygienist session to brighten and freshen your smile with a Scale & Polish.
What is a Scale & Polish?
A scale removes traces of plaque and hard tartar which cannot be removed by simply brushing alone. The polishing stage helps to clean your teeth and helps remove stains which may have been caused by smoking, red wine, coffee, tea etc.
We have on site Dental Hygienists for your convenience. If you do suffer from any form of gum disease seeing the Dental Hygienist every 3-6 months is an important part of keeping your teeth long term.

Are you brushing correctly?
Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth.
Move systematically around the mouth.
Remember to clean the inside surfaces and the biting surfaces.
Dont forget behind the top and bottom teeth.
A good technique will take 2 minutes.
Are you flossing?
Debris accumulates between the teeth.
If not removed, bacteria will develop and plaque will form.
Use the floss with a back and forth motion and with a vertical action until all the plaque is removed.
Work the floss gently under the gum.
