Good oral hygiene is fundamental to having healthy teeth and gums and routine visits to the dental hygienist are equally as important as having regular check-ups with your dentist.
Hygiene therapy involves a thorough assessment of the health of your teeth and gums and the gentle removal of any stubborn plaque and tartar build-up around the teeth and below the gum line that simple brushing alone cannot always remove. Plaque and tartar are the enemy of teeth and if left to their own devices they can cause significant problems associated with tooth decay and gum disease.
Our experienced dental hygienists work alongside our dentists to provide the very best in oral health care. Our hygienists give your teeth the very best deep clean, and are on hand to advise on every aspect of your oral health and show you how best to maintain your teeth in a clean and healthy state through effective brushing and flossing. They are experts in caring for those patients with severe gum problems such as gingivitis and periodontitis, and for those patients who have had extensive reconstructive work such as implants.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
