Dental hygiene treatment removes any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned above and below the gums with special equipment and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing. Advanced gum disease may require cleaning of the tooth root surfaces.
An important aspect of the hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using inter-dental brushes.
