Hygienists help you to obtain healthy gums that don’t bleed, fresh breath and spotlessly clean teeth. They will also teach you how to optimise your own cleaning skills to use at home.
If you suffer from periodontal disease which causes bone destruction and loose teeth, hygienists are essential – with gentle, but thorough cleaning, they can slow the process down so that you stand a much better chance of keeping your teeth for life.
If during a hygiene appointment we notice that you may need other general dental treatment, we'll advise you of your options from there and can make the relevant appointments for you.
