We recommend regular visits to our Hygienist to help maintain your smile and keep your teeth and gums healthy. These appointments are a great way to compliment and support your own daily hygiene routine. The Hygienist will give your teeth a professional clean and will also be able to detect any potential problems that may require further investigation by the dentist.
As well as protecting your oral health, an appointment with the Hygienist is a quick and easy way to give your smile a freshen up. Your teeth will be given a thorough scale and polish to leave them clean and shiny. The Hygienist will carefully check your teeth and gums, making it an effective way to catch problems early and prevent them from developing into something more serious. We are also able to give you guidance on how to best look after your teeth and minimise decay, including factors such such as diet.
Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home is essential to prevent plaque and tartar building up along the gum line. If left to develop, this can go on to cause gingivitis as well as tooth decay and cavities. It is essential that teeth are brushed for at least two minutes twice daily, with the second time being last thing at night. We also advise carefully cleaning between the teeth with dental floss or an interdental brush at least once a day.
