WHAT IS DENTAL HYGIENE?
If you have not visited a hygienist for a while, you may be worried your teeth are beginning to look jaded or your gums feel tender.
Your hygienist will use their expertise to remove plaque, tartar and discolourations as well as polish your teeth. The overall effect is a professional deep cleaning feeling. Our hygienists also have years of experience in identifying and tackling gum disease. They will discuss your daily oral health routine with you, sharing the latest advice about how to look after your teeth and gums.

“They explained all my options for me in detail, taking care to highlight different financially suitable options and were able to work around my busy schedule. The receptionists are also lovely.” Kai Chelliah. Dental crowns.
"I followed my wife on her visit to the dentist and was so warmly welcomed by Piotr and the other staff members that, after chatting with them about my concerns and them being so understanding, I decided to give it a try. Almost 5 months of my teeth are saved.” Michael Sparrow. Fillings, whitening and gum disease treatment.
Will my dental hygiene treatment be painful?
There may be some discomfort but patients do not usually feel any pain.
How long will my appointment last?
Dental hygiene appointments at White & Co. usually last for 40 minutes.
How often do I need to visit the dental hygienist?
This depends on the individual patient and the condition of their teeth and gums. A patient whose teeth and gums are in great condition would usually visit the hygienist every six months.
What if it is a long time since I last saw a hygienist?
When a patient first starts treatment with the hygienist, a series of visits may be the best course of action. As their oral health starts to improve, the visits will usually become less frequent.
