  • Scale and Polish

The Hygienist principle area of expertise is to professionally clean patient’s teeth, usually known as ‘scale and polish’.
Patients who have their Scale and Polish with the Hygienist will be given a 20 minute appointment. Within this time you will receive a more in depth cleaning, but also in addition you will receive stain removal and polishing as this is not available on the NHS. If applicable you will also be shown brushing techniques and advised on which brush or flossing system is of benefit for you.
