Our dental hygienist is specially trained to work as part of the team and is primarily concerned with maintaining good oral health and treatment and prevention of gum disease and bad breath. She works Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings.
Our hygienist works with the dentist to up a suitable cleaning regime which suites you. She will clean your teeth and educate you in how to best care for your teeth and gums effectively, and the effects of diet on oral health.
Regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar and staining, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance and give you fresh breath.
Our hygienist will carefully remove hard deposits of calculus (tartar) that builds up on teeth and teach you how to prevent it from coming back. This will do a lot to slow the progression of gum disease.
Where deposits of calculus lie deep in the gums and may cause discomfort during removal, you may be advised to have anesthesia for certain areas.
Our hygienist will talk to you about your diet and recommend other preventive measures and routines to battle gum disease.
In cases where we feel gum disease is advanced or response to treatment is not very effective, your hygienist will again liaise with your dentist to provide an appropriate referral to a specialist.
Hygiene appointments are 30 minutes each. In cases where there is a need of very extensive cleaning, you may be advised to have more than one visit.
The cost of an appointment is £60 per 30 minutes.
Full payment will be required prior to the appointment. A failed appointment will incur a non-refundable £20 charge.
