If you’re looking for a dental hygienist in the North East, South Tynside, South Shields, Jarrow and Hebburn. We offer direct access appointments with our lovely hygienists which means you can pop in for a spring clean even if you’re not registered with one of our Dentists – here’s one of our patients to tell you all about it!
Hand held instruments known as scalers and ultrasonics to clean the teeth. Local anaesthetic (numbing) to control sensitivity.
Gingivitis occurs when plaque is allowed to build up around a tooth and create a sticky layer which causes a gum infection.
Periodontitis occurs in susceptible patients when a long-term gum infection is not treated. Infection and resultant inflammation lead to loss of ligament and bone around the root of your tooth.
