With prevention at the forefront of care, our hygiene therapists play a key role within the dental team, helping you to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Through tailored scaling and oral hygiene advice, they will work with you to help eliminate oral bacteria in the form of plaque and tartar, keeping your mouth looking and feeling good. Frequent visits with your therapist may also help prevent the need for further dental procedures such as fillings or extractions. In addition to scale and polishes, the dental therapist may carry out a number of other dental treatments such as fillings, x-rays, periodontal treatment and jet polishes.
Dental hygiene therapists can also cover all aspects of children’s dentistry, with a special focus on helping your child overcome any anxiety they may have about getting treatment.
