What can the hygienist do for me?

The hygienists are a vitally important part of the team. They improve the health of your gums and help you to maintain them. They provide the best form of prevention. Hygienist treatment is often overlooked. It is, however, fundamentally the most important part of our service.

Gum disease is the commonest cause of tooth loss. Healthy gums are paramount to a healthy mouth. Dental plaque causes gum inflammation and later bone loss around teeth. It also contributes to dental decay. Clean mouths are healthy mouths. Those who regularly visit the hygienists have less dental disease and spend less money and less time at the dentist. Why not join our preventative programme, THE PRACTICE PLAN.
