The important role of the dental hygienist

A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build up of plaque and tartar whilst regular dental hygienist appointments for teeth cleaning, remove the plaque and tartar in those harder to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.

Gum disease and tooth decay is the most common global disease affecting every household. Over 80% of cavities occur inside pits and fissures on chewing surfaces where brushing cannot reach food left trapped after every meal or snack and saliva or fluoride have no access to neutralise acid and re-mineralise demineralised tooth.

We provide dental hygiene appointments with our experienced dental hygienists in to fully clean your teeth and gums and advice on your daily dental hygiene routine.

Our dental hygiene appointments include:

  • malmin-toothbrush-in-cupDental hygiene examination to look for any inflammation, bleeding and plaque or calculus build up.
  • Scaling & polishing to remove all plaque and calculus with a variety of the latest equipment including the latest air polishing which fires a jet of air, water and sodium bicarbonate at your teeth to remove debris and polish the surface.
  • Daily dental hygiene advice and routine to ensure you can maintain those areas visibly accessible on a day to day basis in between dental hygiene appointments and ensure long term problems caused by poor dental hygiene remain at bay.

Our dental hygienists can help with halitosis treatment too, this can be a common result of poor dental hygiene.
