Hygienist TreatmentsThe hectic pace of today's adult lifestyle often leaves little time for the daily oral health care routine needed to prevent cavities and periodontal disease.

This is unfortunate since periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. A high percentage of the population has some form of periodontal disease. Visiting the hygienist regularly could help prevent periodontal disease.

Benefits of visiting a dental hygienist regularly include:

  • Reducing the risk of permanent damage to teeth and gums.
  • Preventing more extensive and costly treatment in later years through early detection of periodontal disease.
  • Helping you learn more about proper care for your teeth and gums.
  • Professionally cleaning your teeth and gums giving you a healthy mouth and fresh breath.
  • Healthy mouths, fresh breath and clean teeth help improves your appearance. 

Recent changes in legislation now mean patients can book to see a dental hygienist directly to have their teeth and gums looked after. Our experienced dental hygienists will discuss your oral health needs with you and may recommend you see a dentist if any potential problems are identified.

Our dentists work very closely with our dental hygienists to help improve our patient’s oral health and we are very lucky to have two excellent and highly qualified and experienced dental hygienists working with us at Pomfret & Farrell Dental: Hannah Mills and Claire Ireland.
