Dental hygiene services
Dental Hygiene visits for both adults and children are essential as part of the dental care we provide for our patients.
Gum disease and tooth decay are the most common diseases affecting society.
Our team of hygienists & therapists work with patients to establish a good daily home care routine along with any necessary treatment to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums.
We carry out:
Dental Hygiene Evaluations: We assess the health of the gums, looking for plaque and tartar that could cause inflammation. We also carry out a risk assessment for tooth decay.
Home Care Advice: Provide patients with the tools and information they need to achieve a good daily home care routine that will help prevent further progression of gum disease and tooth decay.
Scaling and Polishing: Removing plaque and calculus from the tooth surface, especially those areas that patients find difficult to reach. Polishing removes surface stain, leaving the teeth feeling and looking clean.
Fissure Sealants and Varnishes: We use a hard glass like material to fill in the grooves on the biting surfaces of the back teeth, to prevent bacteria causing decay in these difficult to clean areas.
We can also apply medicinal varnishes to teeth to prevent tooth decay and reduce sensitivity.
