Our dental Hygienist specialises in looking after patient's oral health and enjoys educating both adult and child patients on how to prevent dental disease and maintain good oral hygiene. We believe in a prevention based approach and our hygienist is central to this.
The hygienist's main role is to professionaly clean teeth. This is usually called "scaling and polishing". Being a hygienist also involves educating patients about diet and how to prevent dental decay. Regular professional cleaning combined with knowledge of how to look after your mouth will improve your appearance and help you to keep your teeth and have a fresh breath.
Gum disease is a very common condition where the gums become swollen, sore or infected. If you have gum disease, your gums may bleed when you brush your teeth and you may have bad breath. If gum disease is not treated, it can eventually lead to bone loss and tooth extraction.
