The Hygiene department at Dental Elegance is the hub of the practice. It consists of two Hygienists; both called Sarah, who share a wealth of experience.
Hygienists are specialists in Preventative Dentistry and work closely with the dentists. We treat adults and children. There are many reasons why you may be referred to us, but if you are experiencing symptoms like bleeding, swollen gums, bad breath/taste, loose or stained teeth, the dentist will recommend that you see us for an initial consultation.
This first session will involve the Hygienist taking recordings and possibly x-rays of your mouth and establishing what course of treatment to take.
Also during this session you will be shown how best to look after your mouth. This will include brushing, cleaning between your teeth, diet/nutrition advice, smoking cessation advice, and anything that you have in your medical history that may make you vulnerable to gum disease, eg. Diabetes.
Gum disease is the largest factor of tooth loss in adult life.
Whatever the course of treatment the Hygienist recommends, don’t forget that we pride ourselves on a pain-free, relaxing and happy environment (which can also include the latest needle free anaesthetic) . For long sessions, you can even watch a DVD!
After your treatment is complete, not only will you see and feel a difference in your smile, you will gain inner confidence knowing that you have a clean healthy mouth.
