The majority of tooth loss in adults in modern society is due to gum disease. Plaque if not removed effectively through brushing and flossing turns to calculus which is hard and needs to be professionally removed. If it is not removed it will cause gum irritation and gum infections.
Our hygienist will guide and advise you on ways to optimise your oral hygiene. They will clean your teeth removing any calculus and polish your teeth to leave your teeth clean and gums healthy. Patients who have more severe staining will be offered a “air flow handy”, which is like a power shower for your teeth and removes more intricate staining resulting in brilliant clean teeth that sparkle.
It is important to visit the hygienist regularly and your dentist will be able to advise you on this. Some patients may need to see the hygienist every 3 months, 6 months or annually to ensure you receive the level of care you require. The relationship between good oral hygiene and the long-term success of any treatments that we provide is based on a well-established concept of knowledge.
We aim to make your dental treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible
