We have a a dedicated dental hygienist who is specially trained to work as part of our team. Our dental hygienist plays an important part in dental care as they are mainly concerned with preventative dental health. Our hygienist will be looking out for the health of your gums, which is vital to maintaining the health of your teeth. We will teach you correct home care, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We will also advise you of the best ways to keep your teeth free from plaque, give you best practices about your diet and preventing tooth decay.
During the course of your dental hygiene appointment, our hygienist will professionally clean your teeth by a technique called ‘scale and polish’, or prophylaxis. This involved removing the plaque and tartar (or ‘calculus’) from the surface of your teeth. As you may know, plaque is a sticking coating that constantly builds up on the surface of your teeth.
We advise patients to have regular hygienist appointments with us, with a combination of looking after your teeth and gums at home, to keep your mouth healthy. Of course, the regularity depends on individuality. Adults, as well as children, who suffer from tooth decay can benefit from having fluoride applied on the surface of their teeth.
Although a dental hygiene is generally pain free, some patients can experience some degree of discomfort. Anaesthetic creams of local anaesthetic can be administered to relieve such pain.
At Sonria, we pride ourselves in working as a team to give you care and service that is tailored specifically to your needs.
