Your Hygiene Appointment: What to Expect

Your appointment with our oral hygienist will begin with her thoroughly assessing your mouth, including teeth, gums, and other soft tissues. She will also obtain any digital imagery required, such as high-resolution photos and X-rays to gain a more comprehensive overview of your oral health (including the spaces that are hard to see).

From here, our hygienist can determine what is needed to get your oral health and hygiene to an excellent state. She also applies a plaque disclosing solution, before taking a photo of the results and showing you where the majority of your plaque lies. This is a great way of demonstrating the more problematic areas within your mouth that need extra attention when brushing and flossing.

Finally, our hygienist will perform a thorough clean, including both an ultrasonic and hand scale, as well as a full mouth floss, fluoride treatment, and the application of desensitising agents to sensitive teeth. Additionally, she uses a sodium bicarbonate mixture to target more stubborn, hard-to-remove stains, leaving you with a smile that doesn’t just feel healthier, but looks stunning too.

How Often Should You Have Your Teeth Cleaned?

The general advice is every six months, but different people need different care, so this can vary. When you come for your check-up, you’ll get a personalised recommendation for how often you should see our hygienist.
