Our hygiene department is where the majority of teeth cleaning & polishing is undertaken. Most patients have a regular 6 or 12 month scale and clean depending on an individual’s state of oral health.
At this time the teeth, gums and soft tissues are thoroughly checked for any anomalies that may need further attention.
There is also an emphasis on oral hygiene education at these appointments. This is to equip patients with the best information and tools so they can gain and maintain an optimum state of oral health.
Our prime focus in this department is on prevention, and picking up on dental issues early, before they become a problem in terms of pain and increased cost for patients.
