Our wonderful hygienist Annette boasts great experience and knowledge in dental hygiene and is on hand to offer the best service possible to Wickham patients. Her main role is to show you how to best keep your teeth clean as a commitment to our policy of prevention over treatment. She will explore the parts of your mouth which are most at risk to disease and offer you guidance on how to defend yourself against infection as best as you can.
In 30 minute appointments, you can expect to see hand scalers and an ultrasonic scaler to ensure you leave with the cleanest mouth possible! The hygienist may flush the pockets in your mouth using an antiseptic solution, floss your teeth and polish away stains too. (She also provides 60-minute periodontal treatment appointments.)
We operate using strict infection protocols and sterilised instruments to ensure every safety standard is met and maintained. Your health and our hygiene are the most important factors for us and we go above and beyond to ensure you are as protected as possible when in the practice.
