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
It has given me confidence to smile freely! I also had a whitening treatment, which was excellent, and my teeth have kept their whiteness. I couldn't recommend the Inman aligner and Galer enough. She is so caring and enthusiastic and was throughout the whole treatment. It has all been worth it!
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.
I can now eat comfortably and do not suffer with jaw pain when I eat and speak. They have certainly improved my day-to-day life and I wouldn’t be without them now.
