Why see a Dental Hygienist?
With an ageing, and increasing, population, this mean's more teeth for Dentists to look after! Hygienists' help reduce the work load by maintaining existing restorative treatment, preventing disease/ further treatment.
Periodontal (gum) disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss! Hygienists' are trained in preventing and treating gum disease. Healthy gums support teeth!
Tooth decay is the world's third most prevalent, PREVENTABLE disease. Sugar causes this, as well as systemic diseases i.e. diabetes type II. Your Hygienist gives education on diet and lifestyle, which is good for your mouth, and general health
What to expect at your visit to FLOSS

1. a gum assessment will taken, with a diagnosis
2. a full mouth 'professional mechanical plaque removal' (clean) of the gums and teeth. You may require more than one appointment, or even a referral to a specialist (Periodontist)
If required, dental x-rays will be taken. Hygienists are particularly interested in gum disease/ bone levels.
Fluoride Varnish application is offered and can be applied at the end of the appointment. Ideally eat before the appointment.
Screenings will be obtained at every appointment. We will feel outside the jaw then complete visual checks inside the mouth, ruling out an abnormalities including Oral Cancer.
