A dental hygiene treatment includes an assessment of your gums and teeth to detect any problems such as stains, plaque build-up, bad breath or signs of gum disease. Plaque accumulation can lead to gingivitis, causing the gums to become swollen, infected or sore. Regular sessions with a dental hygienist can address these concerns.
One of the common techniques we use for oral health management is a scale and polish treatment. This procedure gently removes stubborn plaque and tartar deposits from the surface of the teeth and below the gum line.
Our hygienists work alongside our dentists to demonstrate techniques for dental care and formulate an oral hygiene regime for you to follow at home. They also provide advice on dietary choices that can impact your oral health.
