Why visit the dental hygienist?
Regular trips to the dental hygienist will help you to improve your oral health. During your visit, your dental hygienist will scale and polish your teeth to remove all traces of plaque and tartar. This cannot be removed by brushing alone. They will also offer personalised advice to help you care for your teeth at home. And if you are curious about cosmetic dentistry treatments, they will be available to answer your questions.
AirFlow Stain Removal
Airflow stain removal is a revolutionary treatment that uses the power of air, water and tiny particles to effectively clean your teeth. This process removes all signs of plaque and tartar, even from hard to reach areas. It also removes surface staining, making it the ideal choice before teeth whitening, dental implants or orthodontics.

What exactly does a dental hygienist do?
A dental hygienist supports the dental staff and provides specialist care. They complete dental examinations, look for signs of oral disease, provide deep cleaning and offer personalised advice. They are also essential for providing additional cancer screening.
Should I visit the dental hygienist before cosmetic treatments?
Yes, we recommend starting with a clean and fresh canvas! A deep cleaning will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. If you are considering teeth whitening, a deep cleaning will also remove surface stains and help the treatment to be more effective. A trip to the hygienist is also recommended before dental implants as you need your gums to be in a healthy condition.
How often should I visit the dental hygienist?
This varies between patients. Most people should aim to visit every six months. If you also visit the dentist every six months for a checkup, this will ensure that problems are spotted and fixed quickly. Some people can visit the hygienist as little as once per year, while others need to visit every three months. Ask your dentist as your next checkup if you aren't sure.
Will my dental hygienist appointment hurt?
No, you shouldn't feel any discomfort during a deep cleaning. If you feel any pain during your AirFlow stain removal treatment, let your dental hygienist know as you may have very sensitive teeth.
