For good oral health, patients should see the oral hygienist on a regular basis.
Hygienist treatments include:
- Professional scale and polishing
- Advanced gum treatment
- Education in prevention of dental disease
- Fissure sealants for children and adults
- Desensitizing treatment
Your dentist will do an assessment to determine your individual hygienist programme.
Some hygiene treatment procedures may need a local anaesthetic. Our hygienists can do this by traditional numbing or a new procedure that only numbs around the tooth that needs to be treated for a pain free procedure.
