What is it?
Our hygienists are highly trained and enthusiastic about educating patients on the most effective ways to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Hygiene treatments are when a hygienist or oral health therapist examines your mouth to assess the health of your teeth and gums and to look for any signs of disease. They will then do a professional clean and polish, using a combination of modern dental techniques. This removes any bacteria and plaque from above and below the gum surfaces. Once the plaque has been removed, your teeth will be polished, leaving them feeling smooth and fresh.
Your hygienist will then show you how to care for your teeth at home. They will advise you on all aspects of dental hygiene, including the use of toothbrushes and dental floss.
