Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a specially trained dental hygienist or dentist who will help to remove any hard and soft plaque and all the stains from your teeth that may have built up over time.
On your hygiene appointment your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal and risk factors will be highlighted. Then your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. This is also known as scaling and polishing.
The hygienist/dentist will show you how to look after your teeth so that they remain free from plaque in the future. You will be advised on the best tooth brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
Dental hygienist also functions preventatively to treat gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.
