Gum Treatment

What can a dental hygienist do for me?

Our Hygienist plays a key role in maintaining excellent gum health. Here at Central Dental, we have full time hygienist. A hygienist's main duty is to prevent and treat gum disease with scaling, polishing and root planing (which may be under local anaesthetic) to remove the calculus and plaque.

The hygienist will demonstrate correct flossing and brushing techniques as well as inter-dental cleaning. The Hygienist helps by removal of harmful plaque and tartar deposits in the deeper pockets around the teeth and in areas where you cannot access easily.

We offer Dietary advice and other information such as how to give up smoking is given. Research has shown that patients who regularly visit the hygienist; suffer from less dental problems in the long term.
