Hygienist treatment and walk-in hygiene services

We have an expert team of skilled dental hygienists, which is proficient in the provision of innovative, effective hygiene treatments. Hygiene services are designed to tackle symptoms of existing dental disease, such as gum disease, but they also play a crucial role in preventing oral health problems and safe-guarding smiles.

Scale and polish

Our hygienists provide scale and polish treatments, which aim to remove plaque and tartar deposits from the tooth surface and the gum line, and polish the teeth to give your smile a beautiful, radiant glow. A scale and polish will make you look and feel amazing, but it will also reduce the chances of developing dental issues, including cavities and gum disease.


Oral hygiene advice

In addition to providing expert cleaning treatments, our hygienists are also on hand to offer cleaning tips and bespoke oral hygiene advice. The best way to keep your smile sparkling is to adopt and maintain a thorough daily oral hygiene regime at home. If you brush and floss, this will stand you in good stead when it comes to preventing bad breath, tooth staining, decay, and gum disease.


Gum disease is the leading cause of premature tooth loss in UK adults, and it is usually caused by plaque deposits, which collect around the base of the teeth on the delicate gum line. Plaque is a sticky material, which can harden and turn into tartar. It is made from food debris, bacteria, and saliva. The harmful bacteria present in plaque irritates the gums, causing them to become painful, swollen and red. Gum disease is a progressive condition, and if it is left untreated, it can develop into periodontal disease and result in early loss of the teeth.
Prevention is always better than cure, and our friendly, approachable hygienists can give you all the information and advice you need to keep your gums healthy. We can also provide healthy eating and brushing tips to lower the risk of decay.
