Dental Hygiene

Our hygienists can help keep your teeth cleaner and your mouth healthier


A hygienist can help keep your teeth cleaner and your mouth healthier. This can have beneficial effects for your breath and the rest of your health as well, so be sure to schedule regular hygienist visits into your dental regimen.


  • Why is oral hygiene so important?

    Regular visits to the hygienist are vital to maintaining good oral health and are an important supplement to regular check-ups. Having made an assessment of your condition the hygienist will recommend an appropriate treatment interval. During your 15 minute visit the hygienist will also polish off unsightly staining left on the teeth caused by smoking, tea or coffee.

    Can my dentist do oral hygiene checks?

    Of course our dentists are fully qualified in all aspects of oral hygiene, but our hygienists have undergone particular training in this area, meaning they focus on ensuring plaque and tartar are removed from both on the teeth themselves and from below the gum line where most damage can be caused.

  • Can I do anything to prevent oral hygiene problems occurring?

    Maintaining a rigorous cleaning programme at home is vital if you want to minimise hygienist appointments. Our hygienist will give you advice and tips not only about how to clean your teeth, but also about diet and general lifestyle.
