Our friendly dental hygienists provide a wide range of services to our customers.

This includes a professional deep clean of your teeth, helping to keep your mouth fresh, healthy and free from tartar. They can also advise you on any problem areas and the best ways in which you can protect them.

If you have any questions or need any advice or tips with regard to your diet or particular dental devices then they would be very pleased to help you.

Even with the best tooth cleaning routine at home it is impossible to stop the gradual build-up of plaque on your teeth.

As this plaque builds each day it increases your chance of developing gum disease- which is actually the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults.

Although some signs of gum disease can be obvious other people can show no signs at all. If left untreated this gum irritation can lead to long-term problems including bone recession and tooth loss.

The best way to ensure that your teeth stay healthy, strong and fresh and that you avoid developing gum disease is by combining a good oral hygiene routine with regular trips to the hygienist in between dental appointments.

Your hygienist can fully check your mouth, picking up on any changes which could indicate problems including oral cancers.

Our hygienists are also fully qualified to undertake routine dental treatments including administering local-anaesthetics, x-rays, impressions and fissure sealants on behalf of the dentist.
