Hygiene appointments at Ethicare Dental

People often ask us what will happen during the hygiene appointment. This will be different for each individual since the hygienist will follow a tailored prescription created by the referring dentist. At the moment patients cannot see the hygienists without a proper prescription by the dentist. If you want to continue to see your own dentist for general check ups but would like to see our hygienists we will need a suitable prescription. The prescription form can be printed out and given to your dentist.

The hygienist will monitor the condition of your gums. They will give you the appropriate oral hygiene advice and instruction as well as dietary advice. They will clean with and ultrasonic scaling device and remove the tartar deposits that you cannot remove yourself with manual scalors. They can give local anaesthetic so that there is no sensitivity associated with the procedure. They can use the prophyflex air abrasion system to gently remove areas of stubborn staining. They will advise regarding the appropriate recall period of attendance along with your dentist.
