Working with in a trusted partnership with dentists and hygienists

What do our hygienists do?
This is a common question. Most people lucky enough to have used a hygienist before will only chose dental surgeries that have hygienists as part of their teams.
During your dental hygiene appointment, we will ask you about any problems or concerns you might have. We then discuss your medical history and oral health, plus check the appearance of your teeth and gums. Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and polished, removing any plaque bacteria, staining and hard deposits (calcium) to give you a clean base to work from.
One of the most important aspects of the hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth, so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique, brush types for your teeth and tips on floss and interdental brushes.
What if I have a bridge or dentures?
Our hygienists can offer specific advice and care techniques if you have a bridge, dentures, orthodontic treatment or dental implants. They will ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy throughout your treatment.
