Dental hygiene is the foundation of maintaining optimal oral health and a bright smile. It encompasses daily habits such as brushing and flossing to remove plaque and food particles, preventing the buildup of harmful bacteria that can lead to cavities and gum disease.
As well as examinations, regular dental appointments should also include professional teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist, which removes plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be eliminated through regular brushing and flossing. These appointments provide an opportunity for your hygienist to address any concerns, offer personalised oral care advice, and ensure that your smile stays healthy and beautiful.
Why should I visit the hygienist?

During these appointments, our experienced dental hygienists meticulously clean your teeth, removing stubborn plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to decay and gum inflammation. By addressing these issues promptly, we can help prevent more significant dental problems from arising in the future.
Additionally, our dental hygiene appointments are an opportunity for patients to receive personalised oral care advice and education on proper brushing, flossing techniques, and overall dental hygiene practices. We believe that empowering our patients with knowledge is the key to maintaining their oral health between appointments.
