Preventative Dentistry » Dental Hygiene
Visiting a dental hygienist is an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy long term. Studies show that people who visit the hygienist are much less likely to lose their teeth from gum disease than those that don't.
Gum disease is entirely preventable. Its treatment will include regular visits seeing the dental hygienist for treatment and working with us to help improve and maintain your dental health. Frequency and intervals of appointments will be discussed with you.
A scale removes traces of plaque and hard tartar which cannot be removed by simply brushing alone. The polishing stage helps to clean your teeth and helps remove stains which may have been caused by smoking, red wine, coffee, tea etc.
If you have excessive staining on your teeth, recently had a brace removed or a special occasion coming up, why not treat yourself to a MegaClean session to brighten and freshen your smile.
For patients wishing to lighten their teeth, we use a process called Teeth Whitening. This process can significantly change the shade of your teeth and is a great way to brighten up your smile.
If you are considering Teeth Whitening, please ask your dentist for further information about risks, benefits and suitability.
