Frequently asked questions
What are the treatments carried out by a dental hygienist?

Your dental hygienist will achieve this by polishing the top most layer of the tooth enamel to restore your stained teeth to, as near as possible, their natural colour. Specialized equipment is used to achieve this that helps remove tartar and smoothen the tooth surface. You will be advised on the best way to maintain your teeth through care and avoidance of certain food etc. You may also be recommended a fluoride treatment plan.
Cleaning sensitive teeth
Inform your dental hygienist if you have sensitive teeth so that they can take the necessary steps to be gentle while cleaning your teeth. Also note that teeth can feel sensitive after a cleaning which is normal and temporary. However, if it does continue longer than a few weeks you should let your dental hygienist know so that they can help you take remedial action if necessary. Remember, cleaning teeth is an easy and effective way to maintain great oral health and prevent cavities and decay. It also helps prevent bad breath or halitosis which is caused by bad oral hygiene.
