"My family & I all use this dentist and they are great. My children are seen by Lynsey the childsmile nurse every 6 months and she is great with them. She shows them how they should be brushing their teeth in a fun & friendly way"
Treatment for Gum Health - Hygiene Treatment
It is very important to maintain healthy gums. Gum Disease is very common and can cause bleeding gums and bad breath. Gum Disease tends to get worse over time and is the most common cause of tooth loss. Also Gum Disease has been linked to more serious conditions like Heart Disease and Diabetes.
We routinely screen patients at ‘check up’ appointments for signs of Gum Disease. Treatment of gum disease can be carried out by a dentist or a hygienist.
WE NO LONGER ROUTINELY OFFER HYGIENIST APPOINTMENTS ON THE NHS
A very limited number of NHS hygienist appointments will be available, but patients will only be offered these appointments at the discretion of their dentist.
