In order to remove any tartar (hardened bacteria) from the teeth and gum line, our hygienist will perform a thorough, professional clean, also known as a ‘scale and polish’. This removes the bacteria from areas that home brushing often misses.
A thorough clean with our hygienist, in conjunction with diligent personal care, will help to prevent gum disease, remove surface staining from your teeth and leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean.
Whilst adults definitely benefit from regular hygienist visits, children will also benefit too.
Early education regarding oral health care is vital in helping them make a great start on the journey to maintaining healthy teeth and gums throughout their life. Whilst children can sometimes be reluctant to listen to their parents, they will often take notice of others who they see as being in a position of authority on a particular subject, such as our dentists and hygienists. So please don’t hesitate to bring them along from an early age.
Our team are experienced at working with children and at putting them at ease and the early education we offer will stand them in good stead and reduce the risk of dental problems as they grow up.
