Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by our experienced Dental Hygienist/Therapist. He will gently remove any plaque, calculus and staining from your teeth so you can keep your teeth cleaner at home.

Your teeth will be professionally cleaned using special equipment and pastes.  This procedure is commonly known as a “scale and polish”.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease by one of our Dentists in Birmingham, you may need to see our Dental Hygienist and Therapist for “Periodontal Treatment”. This treatment will include thoroughly cleaning above and below the gum line to slow down the progression of the disease and prevent tooth loss.

An important aspect 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 and given tips on flossing or shown how to use interdental brushes on your appointment.

 

If you have a bridge, denture, braces or a dental implant, you will have specific oral health needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.

It is recommend that you come in for regular hygienist appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.
