HygienistRoutine hygienist appointments help keep your teeth clean and fresh for a bright and confident smile. We offer a range of treatments from scale and polish through to full periodontal treatment.

Periodontal (or gum) disease is very common, affecting a large percentage of the population. Although it is generally unrecognised by the patient, indications include bleeding gums during brushing, bad breath and in later stages mobility of the teeth.

Gum disease is caused by the build-up of bacteria on the teeth, if these are left for any length of time the plaque becomes harder and can’t be removed by brushing alone. A hygienist specialises in cleaning teeth, particularly in places where a brush cannot reach, and therefore is important in combating gum disease.

We can offer appointments to patients of other practices that do not have their own hygienist.
