Maintaining good oral health is really important. Our dental hygienist will be able to assist you with this.
A regular appointment with our dental hygienist may last for 20-45 minutes. Our dental hygienist will initially check medical histories to ensure that any treatment they undertake will not cause health problems.
They may dye the plaque on the teeth to highlight any areas missed when using a toothbrush and floss and will offer appropriate oral hygiene advice to supplement a patient's daily oral hygiene regime. Our hygienist will measure the gaps between gums and teeth with a rounded probe to explore whether any periodontal disease is present and will undertake any treatment necessary to prevent the disease from progressing. The gum condition will be monitored by the hygienist to ensure regular oral maintenance. They will also encourage regular 3-6 monthly scaling and polishing to ensure the routine maintenance of healthy gums.
