Dental Hygiene

Our hygienists help to preserve your natural teeth by providing a thorough clean and polish of your teeth and by removing the build-up of calculus and bacteria.

It is beneficial to arrange regular maintenance appointments with our hygienists to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy and that your breath is fresh. Poor oral hygiene can lead to many problems, including decay and gum disease, and with our hygienists help, we aim to avoid deterioration of your dental health.

A professional clean and polish not only removes staining which can make your teeth look dark and unsightly, but also removes calculus and bacteria from the surface of your teeth, which is essential to avoid gum disease.

Our hygienists also give you advice on how to maintain this cleanliness at home, including a demonstration of effective flossing and brushing techniques.

Our hygienists also give you advice on how to maintain this cleanliness at home, including a demonstration of effective flossing and brushing techniques. They can also give you advice on any dietary or lifestyle changes that might be necessary to maintain healthy teeth and are trained to spot any problems that our dentists may need to examine.

We recommend that you visit our hygienists at least twice a year, and to keep a thorough daily home care routine to properly care for your teeth and gums.

Tips for good dental hygiene

  • Brush your teeth at least twice every day
  • Avoid sugary and acidic drinks and foods
  • Carry out interdental cleaning (between teeth) e.g. floss daily
  • Use an electric toothbrush
  • Use cleaning products recommended by your dentist or hygienist
