Our team of dental hygienists provide a deep, comprehensive clean of your teeth and gums, as well as providing detailed advice and guidance on how to keep them clean and healthy from home.
Your gums are the foundation of your teeth and are vital to their health, stability and longevity. If they are not cleaned properly then plaque will build up, which is filled with bacteria that erode and decay teeth and gums. If plaque is not removed it will harden to form calculus (tartar), which is much harder to remove without professional assistance.
Untreated, plaque and tartar will erode the teeth and gums, causing the gums to recede (pull away), opening up pockets for food, plaque and bacteria to collect – which leads to gum disease.
Dental Hygienist Services at the Neem Tree
Our dental hygiene appointments last approximately 30 minutes and entail a detailed assessment of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. From this, we can then identify any areas that are in need of improvement and other areas which may require specialist input.
In addition to this, the hygienist will be able to provide a deep clean to ensure that the teeth and gums are clean. They will also provide you with hygiene demonstrations and a programme to ensure they are kept clean until the next appointment.
