Our Dental Hygienists help keep your teeth and gums healthy by a thorough cleaning. They will also provide expert advice on your daily cleaning routine at home, a crucial part of your oral health care. Regular visits with the hygienist will ensure that hidden and difficult to reach plaque (soft deposits) and tartar (hard deposits) is removed from your teeth.
As an upgrade to a scale and polish, we offer Airflow cleaning which removes stains and discolouration, caused by drinking red wine, tea and coffee and smoking. Airflow uses a machine to clean and polish teeth with a combination of water, compressed air and fine powder particles. It’s a cheaper alternative to professional teeth whitening.
By making a hygienist visit part of your dental care regime you can stay one step ahead and avoid becoming one of the 19 out of every 20 people who will suffer from gum disease (the number one cause of tooth loss in adults) during their life.
“For many years but have never been entirely confident with the service and treatment and have changed dental practices a number of times until I was recommended to change to Uma Madhav. I have used Uma for a number of years now and couldn’t be happier with the service and treatment that I have received. My check-ups are very thorough and thanks to Uma’s advice on how to take care of my teeth I haven’t needed any more serious treatment.
I will stay with this practice and, as I have said to Uma, I would rather visit the dentist now than the doctor!”
