Hygiene Services

You only have one smile, for life. Regular hygiene treatments will help keep your smile happy and healthy.

There are two simple steps to good oral hygiene – regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, and good oral health care at home. It’s very important to look after your oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums healthy to limit the chance of dental problems in the future.

What is it?

Our hygienists are highly trained and enthusiastic about educating patients on the most effective ways to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

Hygiene treatments are when a hygienist or oral health therapist examines your mouth to assess the health of your teeth and gums and to look for any signs of disease. They will then do a professional clean and polish, using a combination of modern dental techniques. This removes any bacteria and plaque from above and below the gum surfaces. Once the plaque has been removed, your teeth will be polished, leaving them feeling smooth and fresh.

Your hygienist will then show you how to care for your teeth at home. They will advise you on all aspects of dental hygiene, including the use of toothbrushes and dental floss.

What’s included?

If your hygienist gives you advice about daily dental care like teeth brushing techniques and how often you should floss, write it down. It takes time to build a new habit – some say 21 days or more. In the meantime, here’s a handy idea. Stick your note about your new dental care routine on your bathroom mirror as a daily reminder.
