Dental Hygienists are uniquely qualified to assist in the prevention and treatment of oral disease. A good daily routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build up of plaque and calculus. Regular hygienist appointments are for cleaning and removing plaque and calculus in those hard to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
What does a hygienist appointment involve?
Dental hygiene examination to look for signs and symptoms of gum disease: bleeding gums, plaque, calculus, gum recession, loose teeth, sensitive teeth, gum swelling, bad breath, tooth movements and tooth loss
Scaling (ultrasonic and/or hand scaling) and polishing to remove plaque and calculus
Deep clean tailored for treating periodontal gum disease
Galer and the team at Sharrow Vale Dental Care were brilliant. I was provided with a treatment plan and every stage was discussed in detail so you know what to expect.
The results have far surpassed my expectations and I am over the moon with the end result. I feel so much more confident in my smile and only wish this is something I had done sooner. I cannot thank or recommend Dr Farrer enough
I was absolutely delighted with the results and book in for this treatment every time I come – as it helps remove the stain from dietary products I like.
