Hygiene

One of the most important things our hygienist does is to educate you about the best ways to keep your teeth plaque free and your mouth healthy. This may include cleaning and dietary advice or advice about alcohol consumption and smoking cessation.

The hygienist will also clean and polish your teeth to remove plaque, calculus and staining (this is sometimes called ‘scaling and polishing’).

Combining regular hygienist appointments with your own adequate home care is the best way to maintain a healthy mouth, keep your teeth strong and give you fresher breath.

Your teeth can become discoloured by certain foods and drinks such as coffee, red wine and curry. Smoking also leads to staining of the teeth.

We would firstly recommend regular cleaning by our dental hygienist to help remove surface stains.

If you are still concerned with the shade of your teeth after you have seen our dental hygienist you could consider teeth whitening.
