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
I have been using the denture now for four months and certainly feel like I made the right choice. It fits exceptionally well, does not move about and enables me to chew and bite with confidence. I find it easy to remove and fit for cleaning.
My new tooth felt completely natural as soon as it was installed and has been completely trouble free. I am delighted that I had the work done.
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.
