Our Dental Hygienists

Keeping your oral hygiene up to scratch!

We have 5 passionate dental hygienists at Prettygate Dental, all of whom are well equipped to beat away plaque and perfect your oral hygiene! We specialise in two hygiene treatments: clean and polish and periodontal treatment.

Our hygiene treatments focus on the prevention of gum disease and plaque and tartar buildup, this ensures lifelong healthy teeth and gums, whilst saving you time and money!

Our dental hygienists ensure clean gums and happy smiles!

A thorough clean of the teeth and the gums will ensure that your mouth stays healthy and happy! Often, brushing your teeth is not enough – you can’t always reach the tartar and plaque that build up between teeth. This type of deep clean can prevent all manner of things such as gum disease, smelly breath, and cavities!

Clean and Polish Treatment

Is it for me?

We will always recommend regular visits to your hygienist. This is because your teeth are important, and brushing at home only does part of the job! When supplemented with hygienist visits, your gums and your teeth will stay healthy, clean and clear for a very long time!

Our dental hygienists will first assess your situation, and then they will get to work cleaning and polishing your teeth. By utilising a variety of state of the art tools and instruments, they can swiftly and safely remove stains, blemishes, plaque and tartar – with no damage to teeth, and no pain! This greatly reduces the risk of gum diseases, whilst maintaining a pearly white smile!

Periodontal treatment

Our periodontal treatment has been designed specifically to combat gum disease, with gingivitis being the most common (and the easiest to treat!). However, if left untreated gingivitis can turn into periodontal disease which is more difficult to treat, and will require more specialist attention.

Sadly, there is no cure for periodontitis, but with regular visits to your hygienist, the symptoms and the spread of the disease can be managed, maintained and minimised. Our treatments do often differ from patient to patient, as each case is different and dependant upon the stage of gum disease.

What we also recommend is that you make bi-weekly visits to your dentist to make sure that your teeth are progressing, and to make sure that no complications arise during your wearing of the Inman Aligner.
