Good oral hygiene is the key foundation to a healthy mouth. By keeping your mouth healthy you can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and reap all the benefits of better wellbeing. Our hygienists work hand in hand with our dentists offering expert advice whilst giving you the choice and control over your treatment.
To help support a healthy mouth our team recommend that your teeth are cleaned professionally by our hygienists at least twice a year. This includes tooth scaling to remove plaque, tooth polishing and removal of tartar to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.
Our highly skilled hygienists will carefully and gently treat your gums, removing active disease. They will also demonstrate the best techniques for your home oral hygiene care in a way that suits your needs.
Hygiene visits are essential for:
Scaling and polishing and stain removal
General oral health
Diet advice and decay prevention
Manage bad breath
Advice on acids and tooth erosion
