Treatment you can smile about

Visiting the Hygienist or Therapist regularly is important to help maintain good oral hygiene and anticipate problems which may arise. Our Therapists and dentists work closely to ensure you receive the best possible care and advice, helping you keep your teeth stronger, for longer.

Dental Therapists are specially trained to provide care to patients. Their key aim is to provide our patients with preventative advice, including helping you maintain good oral health. They also provide an array of teeth cleaning services to help you. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.

Our Therapists are dedicated to ensuring our patients have good oral hygiene and healthy gums. By following their advice, you can keep your teeth stronger, for longer.

You can also access Airflow – a great option for the removal of stubborn stains and achieving a brighter smile.

How your Therapist can help

Your Therapist can scale your teeth both above and below the gum line. This may be as part of a routine visit or a detailed treatment plan to help improve oral health. Your visit is much more than cleaning teeth, it also includes:

* Treatment planning to improve gum (periodontal) health.
* Scale your teeth above and below the gum line and polish the surface.
* Give dietary advice to help in the prevention of dental decay (caries) and enamel erosion.
* Apply treatments for sensitive teeth (dentine hypersensitivity).
* Apply fluoride varnish to the teeth to help prevent Dental decay (caries) – where indicated.
* Apply fissure sealants to help keep food and bacteria out of the grooves in your teeth.
* Give advice on how to stop smoking.
* Provide treatments such as Airflow to help with stain removal and make teeth appear brighter.

Your Therapist will help you maintain good gum health and keep your teeth stronger, for longer.


Helping you achieve good oral health

Scaling and polishing is usually pain free. However, you may experience mild and temporary discomfort.

Your Therapist can provide local anaesthetic if required, to reduce discomfort. Just let them know at the appointment.

We are experienced in caring for anxious patients. If you experience anxiety about receiving dental treatment, we will take care of you.

More Information

How does a dentist and hygienist/Therapist differ?

While dentists have more specialised areas of interest, such as orthodontics (e.g. braces), your Therapist is more concerned with the health and hygiene of your mouth. They can help identify problems, such as gum disease, early on. They can also advise on how to keep your mouth clean and fresh, which can help prevent tooth and gum problems from setting in.

Is there anything I can try at home?

We recommend brushing and flossing twice daily, and using a mouthwash that contains fluoride may also help. Interdental brushes are also a good option for those wanting to clean between teeth. And of course, booking in with us also helps keep things on track. Besides this, cutting down on sugar can also have enormous benefits for your teeth, as it can cause tooth decay.

Your Therapist will provide the most appropriate advice to you, at your appointment.
