Oral Hygiene


Oral hygiene appointments are an excellent way to freshen up your smile, while helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We generally recommend you book an oral hygiene appointment at the same time as your regular examination.

Scaling and Polishing

Our hygienist will gently clean your teeth, scraping (scaling) away any calculus or tartar. This is hardened plaque bacteria that cannot be removed through regular brushing. If left in place it will eventually infect and irritate your gums, increasing the risk of gum disease. After scaling your teeth, our hygienist will polish them, helping to remove some surface stains. At the end of treatment your mouth should look and feel beautifully fresh and clean. This is a really nice treatment for brightening up your smile as hardened calculus is quite yellow in appearance.

Advice on Improving Your Oral Care Routine at Home

Our hygienist can work with you to help improve your oral hygiene at home through showing you different techniques for brushing and flossing and identifying any areas you may be missing during brushing. We know many people find it difficult to floss properly but being aware of the proper techniques can make it much easier.

Treatment for Gum Disease

If you have any signs of gum disease you may need to see our hygienist more frequently to help clear up this condition. Sometimes it can be treated through regular scaling and polishing, as this helps to remove infection enabling your gums to heal. However more advanced cases of gum disease may require your gums to be deep cleaned, a procedure that might also be called scaling and planing. This is a similar treatment to scaling and polishing, but removes calculus from just underneath your gum line where the gums have begun to pull away from the teeth due to periodontal or gum disease, creating gum pockets that become infected. Scaling and planing helps to remove bacteria from gum pockets around the teeth, and smooths the exposed root surfaces, making it harder for plaque bacteria to adhere.
