Why are Hygienist visits needed?

  • It may be necessary for your teeth to be cleaned professionally by a Dental Hygienist or a Dentist, in order to remove the calculus and staining which builds up over time!
  • Or in some cases more extensive cleaning may be needed to prevent the progress of gum disease.
  • Periodontitis is a  condition which can lead to the loss of teeth if unchecked, and one which is present in 50% of the population to some degree.
  • Periodontitis is also increasingly linked to other health issues, such as Diabetes and Heart Disease, amongst other things.

Appointments may vary from:

  • intensive instruction on how to improve your home cleaning
  • cosmetic cleaning, to remove stains and calculus
  • deeper cleans, which  may be needed to treat gum disease, this is also known as root surface debridement and may require local anaesthetic
