Our hygienists use ultrasonic scalers to remove hardened plaque or calculus, in areas of your mouth that can be difficult to reach. Plaque, over time, becomes impossible to remove by regular brushing or flossing, so it’s important to see a hygienist. If left untreated, this can lead to gum disease or tooth loss.
A dental hygienist can remove surface stains which build up from drinking tea, coffee or wine. However, you may want to consider teeth whitening to tackle more stubborn discolouring of teeth.
Dental Hygienists are specially trained to clean teeth and gums. They are here to offer advice on how to improve your dental hygiene. Dental hygienists will work closely with dentists to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.
