Stains and debris can stick to your teeth which are not possible to remove with a toothbrush alone. Our dental hygienist can remove this which can instantly brighten your smile. This effective technique can also be used in conjunction with teeth whitening to give you a natural bright white smile.

Gum disease can take the form of Gingivitis which is the inflammation and swelling of the gums. Periodontitis is advanced inflammation and swelling of the gums which can damage the ligaments and bone surrounding the teeth. Various forms of gum disease has been recently linked to general health and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Gum disease is common amongst adults and is often recognised by bleeding on brushing, swelling of the gums, bad breath (halitosis) and loosening or loss of teeth.   If your dentist diagnoses gum disease they will tailor a treatment plan with one of our hygienists specifically to meet your needs.

Good gum health is the foundation of a healthy mouth. If you are due to have any complex dental treatment, for example, tooth whitening, crowns, bridges or implants, you may be advised to see a dental hygienist to ensure optimal gum health in advance of this treatment. Regular dental hygiene visits combined with dental check-ups can be very effective at maintaining your oral health.
