Dental Hygiene

Your gums are the foundation of your teeth and a clear barometer of your dental health overall. Healthy gums are vital for successful dental treatment, and poor gum health has been linked to a number of other health issues.

Bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease, getting help as soon as possible can make a big difference to the treatment you may need. Excellent dental health is all about prevention and reducing risk – and that’s where I come in! I provide treatments for dental therapy and dental hygiene in St Johns Wood NW8 and Welwyn, Hertfordshire, AL6.

I spend time screening and assessing your teeth and gums, and talk this through with you. Because I have dual qualifications, in Hygiene and Therapy, I look at the health of your whole mouth. This means I can focus on your overall dental health, and the relationship between teeth, gums, jaw and your general health and wellbeing.

I’m committed to providing safe, calm and comfortable treatment. It’s important to me that you have a good experience, because I know that sometimes when people endure a painful cleaning procedure it can be extremely off-putting and off putting. As an experienced practitioner, I always take the time to ensure your treatment is designed especially for you, and is as comfortable as possible.

My extensive experience and training, including additional training I undertook in America, means I have a comprehensive approach to patient care. I use the most up-to-date cleaning techniques, loupes for magnification, an air polisher for stain removal and digital dental radiographs to support treatments. I am current with instrumentation techniques and even teach others how to perform effortless, comfortable scaling procedures.

Fees range from £60 to £150, based on treatment needs. An initial assessment, including full analysis and some cleaning, costs £120 and lasts approximately an hour.

If you’d like to talk about any issues you’re experiencing, you’re interested in working on preventing future issues or you’d like a screening appointment to help assess the condition of your oral health, please contact me.
