How we can help:
Our Dental hygienists provide 'preventative' dental health and treat gum disease – showing you correct home care and helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This includes professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar (usually called a 'scale and polish' or prophylaxis).
However, perhaps their most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth. Hygienists also give advice about diet and about preventing tooth decay. Our hygienist will work with your dentist to give you the care that is tailored to your needs.
