Hygienist Services

How can a  hygienist help me?

Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults but it can be avoided with the right oral health routine.

While most people understand the importance of regular trips to the dentist, many of us are still unaware of the benefits of seeing a dental hygienist.  

What does a dental hygienist do?

Dental hygienists provide a range of hygienist services and play a vital role in preventative dentistry, helping people to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

At each appointment your hygienist will give you an oral health examination to look for any inflammation, bleeding and plaque or calculus build up.

After the initial examination your hygienist will use scaling and polishing techniques to remove plaque and tartar you have not been able to clean yourself, to leave your mouth looking and feeling better.

Can a hygienist improve how I clean my teeth?

Your hygienist will offer you advice on how to improve your oral hygiene at home by offering tips on flossing and brushing techniques and how your diet can stains your teeth.

These preventative measures ensure you stop any potential dental issues before they begin.  Your children can also benefit from seeing the hygienist as they will learn good brushing techniques from an early age.

Our hygienist can also solve any problems you may have with bad breath by providing a deep clean of the mouth and using our unique salt and lemon stain removal spray (Air-flow).
