Dental Hygiene in Iffley

Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a specially trained dental hygienist who will help to remove any hard-to-reach plaque and calculus from your teeth that may have built up over time.

Here is what you can expect from a hygiene appointment:
  1. Your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal you will need and risk factors will be highlighted.
  2. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. This process is also known as scaling and polishing.
  3. The hygienist's role is also to show you how to look after your teeth so that they remain free from plaque in the future. You will be advised on the best tooth brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.

Dental hygiene at our practice aims to prevent and treat gum disease. Your hygienist will screen for gum disease and advise you of your options.

It is recommended that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy. Your dentist and hygienist will discuss your frequency of recall with you.
