Our dental hygienist is highly trained and committed to providing patients with a comprehensive cleaning service. Our hygienist will remove tartar and plaque; tartar cannot be removed by brushing alone. We use the latest cleaning technology and also offer advice on diet, oral hygiene and general oral health.

Gum disease is the swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. There are two main types of gum disease: 'gingivitis' and 'periodontal disease'. Without proper management, gum disease may keep progressing until the teeth become loose and can eventually fall out. 70% of adult tooth loss is caused by gum disease. It is often called a silent disease because there may be no pain or obvious symptoms, until the disease becomes advanced.
Regular visits to the hygienist will help to reduce the risk of gum disease as well as treating problems such as bad breath, and staining of the teeth. Our patients benefit from having their own personalised preventative programme tailored to meet their individual needs. Many of our patients appreciate the feeling of a professional clean, as it leaves their teeth looking and feeling healthy, smooth and radiant.
