Dental Hygiene Instruction

The Dental Hygienist only cleans your mouth 3 -12 monthly therefore it is vital you are shown the correct way to clean your own mouth (not just the teeth) and have a tailored cleaning plan for each individuals needs. There is no point your teeth and gums being cleaned once or twice a year as this removes tartar but will not cure the gum disease unless the plaque is kept away between visits on a daily basis.

Each appointment the Dental Hygienist will check your current methods and modify them as necessary with you. We are well equipped to provide demonstrations but occasionally we may request that you bring in what you use to clean for us to see and advise you. We are also well stocked on items you may need to purchase including prescribed medicament’s.
