WHY SHOULD I VISIT THE HYGIENIST?

Visiting the hygienist offers several benefits for your oral health. Firstly, the hygienist provides professional teeth cleanings that effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Secondly, they offer valuable guidance on proper brushing and flossing techniques, helping you maintain good oral hygiene practices at home. Additionally, the hygienist can identify early signs of dental issues, such as gum inflammation or decay, allowing for timely intervention and prevention of more extensive problems. Regular visits to the hygienist contribute to a healthier mouth, fresher breath, and a confident smile.

Children's hygiene appointments

Bringing children to visit the hygienist offers several advantages for their dental health. Firstly, it helps establish a positive and comfortable dental experience from a young age, reducing anxiety and fear associated with dental visits. The hygienist can educate children about proper brushing and flossing techniques, emphasizing the importance of oral hygiene and empowering them to take care of their teeth.

 

Additionally, regular visits to the hygienist allow for early detection of any dental issues or abnormalities, enabling prompt intervention and prevention of potential problems. By instilling good oral hygiene habits and addressing any concerns early on, children can develop a lifelong commitment to maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile.

Airpolishing

Although this is not a tooth whitening therapy the air polish treatment will significantly improve tooth brightness and give you a noticeably sparkling, fresh, healthy mouth, instantly. It is designed to remove simple tooth staining caused by red wine, tea, coffee and smoking. It works through the combined power of air, sodium bicarbonate and a jet of water. To get the best results prior scaling may be required. 

Air polish produces great results without any risk of damaging your teeth. With airflow one treatment can remove all the plaque and discolouration caused by dietary habits.

Air Polish efficiently removes plaque around orthodontic brackets and bands. The uses of orthodontic brackets and bands leads to niches of plaque and stains which need to be removed. This leads to a higher risk of caries following treatment with fixed orthodontics. Air polishing is the most effective method to clean around fixed bands and brackets and to remove plaque and stains from bonded and bracketed teeth. The process is safe and does not damage the appliance or teeth in any way.

Starting from £54 includes a complete scale and air polish treatment leaving a healthy, bright smile.
