Dental Hygiene

Hygienist 

At St Andrews dental practice we have two hygiene therapists who concentrate on improving gum health. You may be referred to see a hygienist by your dentist if you require gum treatment or you may wish to book directly to enjoy that ultra-clean feeling only hygienists can achieve!

Our hygiene appointments range from 25 to 40 minutes depending on your need and will assess the health of your gums. Our hygienists will professionally clean your teeth, monitor and help you prevent periodontal (gum) disease, and offer dietary advice and smoking cessation guidance. Most importantly we will give you advice on how to improve and maintain your daily cleaning routine. We will recommend the best ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy using the latest cleaning techniques that are appropriate to your needs and lifestyle.

Regular hygiene visits and following the advice you are given are critical to maintaining clean, healthy teeth and gums. They will help prevent bleeding gums, gum disease, tooth decay and tooth loss. The latest research even shows a link between gum disease and other health conditions including heart disease, osteoporosis and the risk of getting dementia.

As well as improving gum health, our hygienists and dentists can give your teeth extra sparkle and lustre with air polishing, which takes about 30 minutes and costs from £150.
