Dental Hygiene

At Specialist Dental Services we understand the importance of Dental Hygiene. Oral hygiene is an essential aspect of dental health, without which other dental treatments, like implants, bridges and periodontal treatments can be compromised.

At your bespoke Hygiene appointment we carry out the following:

  • Diagnostic gum measurements
  • Provide comprehensive advice on how best to care for your teeth and what dental aids suit your specific needs
  • Carry out routine “cleanings” and more intense sessions to help you tackle gum disease (periodontitis).

In cases of gum disease, our hygienist works closely with our specialists.

We make saving teeth our priority!

We show our patients with implants and implant retained prosthesis (dentures), how to care for their implants to ensure they last for many years to come..

Amongst other treatments, we provide aesthetic results using ‘Air Flow’ stain removal. This gives patients that ‘extra’ clean by removing stubborn stains like tea, coffee and red wine.

What happens at a hygiene appointment?

We provide 30 minute, 45 minute and 1 hour long appointments to suit individual patient needs.

At these visits we discuss:

  • Your current oral health condition
  • Point out problem areas if these exist and advise on how to best resolve/control these.

We demonstrate various dental aids, discuss your diet to prevent/treat dental caries and enamel erosion and give you appropriate advice.

The treatments include debridement with ultrasonic scalers, hand instruments, air flow stain removal as needed and prophylactic polishing.

The hygienist will recommend how often a patient needs to come back based on their individual needs. Usual recall intervals are 3, 4 or 6 months.

Direct Access

We provide Direct Access services, which means a patient can see the hygienist directly without referral from a dentist.

However, we highly recommend regular (at least yearly) dental check-ups with your regular dentist.
