Dental Hygiene Treatment

Our motto here at Gill Dental has always been “Prevention is better than cure.” Our goals are to ensure your gums and teeth improve in health because we’d like you to keep you smiling throughout your life! 

What to Expect:

Your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal you will need.

Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes leaving you with fresh minty breath. The hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so that they remain free from plaque in the future. You will be advised on the best tooth brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.

It is a general recommendation by most dentists that in order to maintain good oral hygiene, teeth should be cleaned professionally at least twice a year. So here at Gill Dental in Thorndon, we have an expert hygienist to carry out regular scaling and plaque removal to prevent cavities and gum disease. This in turn will minimize the risks of future tooth loss and possible gum recession.
