Regular visits to the hygienist for deep cleaning under the gums are important. The hygiene team can let you know where in your mouth you need to use interdental brushes and the right sizes.
Using products like corsodyl mouthwash and toothpastes can help keep your gums in tip top shape!
Hygienist appointments are often neglected as many people do not have a comprehensive understanding of what their purpose serves. Visiting the hygienist is essential in preventing gum disease; the role of a hygienist is very much focused around prevention over treatment, achieved by performing what is known as a ‘scale and polish’, a deep clean of your teeth to remove tenacious stains and bacteria that cannot be removed through brushing alone.

Your hygienists help you achieve and maintain optimal dental health by thoroughly cleaning your teeth, offering you oral hygiene advice and also providing up to date dental health education.
