Dental hygienist appointments

Having a regular dental hygiene appointment can help to maintain a good level of oral health, and prevent issues such as gingivitis, gum disease and cavities.

Fissure sealants

A fissure sealant is when a back tooth has a thin plastic coating applied in order to seal the tooth and help prevent decay. This is often applied when children’s adult teeth first come through, but may also be applied in later life.

Gum disease treatments

Gum disease is a more common complaint than you may expect. 70% of the population have gingivitis and most of us will suffer with gum disease at some point in our lives. We offer a wide range of gum disease treatments, including scale and polishes, root planing, and in more extreme cases, periodontal surgery.
