Hygiene appointments are vital in maintaining good oral health as our professionals will get to the areas that normal brushing would not be able to reach. It is also in these sessions we will be able to show you exactly which methods of cleaning are best for you.
In some cases, our patients opt for a PerioChip®. This is a small, thin biodegradable chip which your dental practitioner inserts between your gum and tooth if there is a gap greater than 5mm. This helps to kill bacteria, improves healing time and reduces the pocket depth in the case of periodontal disease. (Read more)
