Hygiene Appointments for Your Convenience
Whilst it is always advisable to have regular routine examinations with the dentist, changes in legislation means that patients can now access a standard dental hygiene appointment without the need to have a dental examination.
Our dental hygienist will be happy to discuss the treatment process with you – she may advise a follow up appointment with the dentist, if appropriate.
Our hygienist can carry out the following procedures during a direct access appointment:
- Scale and Polish
- Oral Hygiene Advice
- Removal of superficial staining
- Removal of plaque and other debris
Visiting a hygienist is not a substitute for a full dental examination
Hygienists are unable to diagnose, offer a prognosis or prescribe antibiotics, painkillers or medication (This can only be provided by a dentist)
Should you want to arrange an appointment please contact us on 01628 486096
A medical history will need to be completed on the day.
The Direct access appointment with the hygienist will be up to 30minutes in duration.
