Our dental hygienists are here to provide thorough routine cleaning of your teeth and gums and advise you on the latest oral hygiene best practices. Keeping your teeth and gums clean is essential for avoiding cavities, infections and other common dental problems.
In a routine oral hygiene appointment, you can expect us to give your teeth a thorough clean in a process known as a scale and polish. This involves removing hardened plaque from the surface of the teeth and thoroughly cleaning in between the teeth and other areas which are impossible to reach by simply brushing and flossing at home. We’ll also check your brushing and flossing techniques and recommend the latest oral hygiene products to help you keep your teeth in excellent condition.
Everyone can benefit from regular routine appointments with a dental hygienist to keep on top of plaque and tartar buildup. However, these appointments are particularly important for those who have a history of gum disease or are simply more susceptible to stubborn plaque. You’re sure to leave our clinic with a brighter, more confident smile after a thorough cleanse and polish.
