What does a hygienist do?
The hygienist’s job is to ensure that gums are as healthy as possible through regular maintenance.
Remember healthy gums do not bleed.
Gum disease or gingivitis is caused by accumulation of plaque and calculus (tartar) around the teeth and gums. The first sign of gum disease is bleeding from the gums when you brush your teeth. Advanced gum disease can also be treated by our hygienists over several sessions with regular maintenance visits thereafter for teeth retention in the future.
Gum disease can be prevented by a) thorough scaling carried out by the hygienist and b) thorough plaque removal using toothbrush, inter-dental brushes and/or floss.
Your hygienist visit will last for 30 minutes. During this time the hygienist will scale your teeth removing calculus and staining. He/she will also offer advice and demonstrations on how to clean the teeth and gums in order to keep them healthy.
We now offer the “air-flow” stain removal system, to eliminate stubborn coffee, red wine and smoking stains from your teeth.
For each 30 minute appointment there is a £55 charge. All patients are reminded prior to their appointment as there is a strict cancellation policy in force. Failure to give at least 24 hours notice or failing to attend will result in the total cost of the appointment being charged.
We also offer Airflow treatment, the cost is £65 for the appointment.
