A visit to the Hygienist is more than just about cleaning and polishing your teeth, which of course is also very important and a major part of the role of our Hygienists.

The feeling after a professional clean will leave your mouth feeling fresh, clean and revitalised but a hygienist will also help you with good oral health habits that you can carry though at home.

Oral cancer can be picked up from these visitsas well as the early stages of gum disease which can be treated before it becomes a real problem. Research has shown that gum disease is directly linked to your general health and can be an indicator of serious diseases such as heart disease and strokes.
