Hygienists

As a practice dedicated to prevention, we have highly qualified hygienists, specially trained to look after your teeth and gums, and to teach you how best to care for them.

Our hygienists can help you to maintain a healthy mouth, avoiding problems such as decay and gum disease (the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults).

Gum disease is a common condition, and can cause bad breath, and sore, swollen or bleeding gums. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to tooth loss. It can also affect your overall health, with links now established between gum disease, heart disease, diabetes and strokes.

During your visit the hygienists will clean your teeth professionally, removing plaque (a constantly-forming layer of sticky bacteria which causes gum disease) and leaving your teeth fresh and clean.

Our hygienists can also offer you lots of helpful advice on the best way to care for your teeth and gums, including an effective daily cleaning routine and following a healthy diet.

Please get in touch if you would like any further information.
