Our Dental Hygienist Services

From our Portland Road clinic we provide a selection of treatments and services, offering personalised approaches for all.

When visiting our experienced dental hygienist, you may decide between:

Traditional Scale and Polish

This is a traditional teeth cleaning method, meant to remove plaque and tartar that could build up over time. It polishes your teeth to give them a smoother, cleaner surface and acts as protection against problems like gum disease and tooth loss.

Guided Biofilm Therapy

You’ll always be respected and heard if you tell us you’re not comfortable with prolonged close proximity. Guided Biofilm Therapy is perfect for this. It’s a minimally invasive process involving air, water, and a non-toxic powder, which quickly and effectively removes plaque buildup.

Gentle Dental Practices to Put You at Ease

We have been welcoming and caring for patients for many years, and we understand that everyone will have different calming techniques that work for them. Our compassionate staff can show you a variety of methods that work for relaxation, helping ease your mind before we get started. If it helps, we can start slowly by introducing you to the practice, our staff, and our treatments little by little.

For some patients, safe dental sedation is also an option. To learn more about this please visit our page for Nervous Patients.
