Hygiene & cleaning

Dental hygiene is at the heart of every procedure we perform. We want all of our patients to have strong, healthy teeth and gums.

We offer a range of cleaning and hygiene services to suit your needs, budget and available time.

Our team of experienced dental hygienists are here to ensure that your gums remain healthy and your teeth are kept clean, free of tartar and plaque, and look the very best that they can.

Under the NHS you are entitled to a scale-and-polish as part of your routine dental examinations if your dentist considers this necessary to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

Due to current Covid restrictions within dentistry, we are unable to use the ultrasonic scaler and can only offer hand scaling. This is explained to every patient when they book their hygiene appointment. When restrictions are lifted, we expect to offer all of our hygiene and cleaning services.

Scale & Polish

Treatment time: 20-30 minutes 

Treatment price: from £50

Our dental hygienist will carry out a comprehensive assessment of your oral hygiene to identify any areas of concern that can then be immediately addressed. Your teeth and gums will then be given an extended clean and maintenance session.

Your dental hygienist will also show you how to best take care of your oral health at home and can recommend cleaning products that will best suit you in terms of your needs, lifestyle and budget.

This scale and polish session will leave your teeth shining, smooth and rejuvenated.

AirFlow Scale & Polish

Treatment time: 30 minutes 

Treatment price: from £145 

This treatment option combines all of the benefits of a Scale & Polish by using a mixture of air, jet water and fine powder to gently and effectively blast away stubborn stains and any plaque on your teeth, returning them to their natural whiteness.

The treatment works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco and some mouthwashes.
