Oral hygiene appointments are vital for your oral and general health. During your appointment, which will typically last 45 minutes, the hygienist will give your teeth a professional deep clean to remove calculus, plaque and stains. Gum disease is the most common disease in the human body. Initial symptoms include bad breath and painful, swollen or bleeding gums. With treatment it can be controlled, but if left untreated it can eventually lead to tooth loss. Professional oral hygiene cleanings are a vital part of successful prevention and treatment of gum disease and play an important role in supporting your home care routine.


Oral Hygiene appointments are recommended at least every 6 months. Our hygienists will discuss with you how often you should book an appointment.
