While dentists concentrate on treating tooth and gum conditions, the dental hygienist has a vital role in helping to prevent problems from arising.

Dental hygienists are dental health care professionals and work as part of the dental team. A dental hygienist carries out procedures such as removing plaque, tartar and deposits from your teeth using hand and rotary instruments.

If necessary the dental hygienist can place fissure sealants on your teeth. Fissure sealants are clear or sometimes white plastic coatings that are painted onto the biting surface of the back teeth. Some people have very deep fissures in their back teeth, which can be difficult to keep clean - by sealing these fissures with a resin film helps to protect the surface from decay.

A dental hygienist will demonstrate to you if necessary how to floss and brush properly and can also advise you on a healthy diet.

For more information please see Periodontal Information Sheet.

How are teeth cleaned?      

Ultrasonic Instrumentation
This high tech piece of equipment works to gently remove the hardened plaque that has built up on the teeth. It vibrates ultrasonically to remove plaque so gives a tickle sensation, similar to an electric toothbrush. It has many settings and can be adjusted to make sure the patient is completely comfortable. In some cases, for very sensitive teeth we may offer anesthetic to prevent any discomfort.

Hand Instrumentation
For patients with very sensitive teeth or in cases where it is not practical to use an automated ultrasonic scaler, we use hand instruments for plaque removal. This is painless, the patient will feel a gentle pressure on the tooth as it is being cleaned and once finished the teeth are polished.

The final stage in any cleaning, this is designed to removed and residual or tough external staining that is left on the teeth to improve their colour, while bringing the surface texture of the teeth back to their original smooth feeling
