Hygienist & therapist
The dentist will assess your gum health and our hygienists and therapist will play a key role in helping you to maintain a healthy mouth, avoiding problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
We will programme your treatment that may include deep scaling, removing the deposits that promote gum disease, teaching you a daily maintenance programme and offering dietry advice. Recall intervals will be tailored to promote an on-going improvement in your oral health.
Our hygienist and therapist can play a vital role in your oral healthcare routine, and make a huge difference in our ongoing efforts to help you to keep your teeth for life.
The early symptoms of gum disease include bad breath, swollen and bleeding gums (gingiva). If left untreated it may eventually lead to tooth loss.
Our dental therapist is a qualified hygienist and undertakes all aspects of children’s and some adult dentistry including fillings and whitening.
This approach of skill mix has become a modern trend in all aspects of health care.
