Visiting our hygienists in Glasgow is extremely important in order to maintain your oral health. Many individuals may wrongly believe that missing their local dental check-up with us is a minor thing, however this may not necessarily be the case. Maintaining a good level of oral health is key to preventing the development of further dental diseases, such as gum disease, and mouth cancer. In a dental check-up key areas of the mouth should be covered. A member of our dental healthcare team will track the health of each individual tooth, as well as assess and possibly advise an X-ray of the whole mouth. Visiting our dental clinic can help prevent the development of cavities within the mouth, and this might include advising a scale and polish which quickly removes any build-up of plaque or tartar.

During a hygienist appointment patients can expect to experience an overall assessment to detect the levels of plaque on the surfaces of their teeth, the risk factors concerning inadequate cleaning will be pointed out to the patient if deemed necessary. Once our dentists have determined the areas of concern and the level of cleaning required, special dental tools and paste will be used.
