Dental hygienist

Treatment Description

Our hygienist can play a vital role in your oral healthcare routine, and can make a huge difference in our ongoing efforts to help you to keep your teeth for life.

The hygienist & gum disease

The hygienist's main role is helping you to combat gum disease. This can often go unnoticed by sufferers because it is generally painless, but over time it can cause lasting damage which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Gum disease is caused by plaque, a thin, sticky layer of bacteria that is constantly forming on your teeth.

A professional clean

The hygienist gives your teeth a professional clean, removing any plaque that has formed above and below the gumline. She also polishes them, leaving your mouth feeling fresh and clean.

Helpful advice from the hygienist

The hygienist will explain to you how best to care for your teeth and gums. This will include advising you about the best way of brushing them, and the most suitable method for cleaning between your teeth and under the gumline.
