Oral hygiene & gum treatments

Keeping your mouth healthy with good oral hygiene

Our highly trained hygienists work with you to ensure healthy gums, fresh breath and outstanding oral health. At Hitchin Dental Care we understand that your needs can change – sometimes you are planning to look your absolute best for a special occasion, and other times you may want a quick refresh.

We offer three levels of hygiene appointments:

Bronze: a basic clean and scale to remove light tartar. The appointment lasts 30 minutes. £52.50

Silver: to remove heavier deposits of tartar, clean and polish. The appointment lasts 45 minutes. £78.75

Gold: the ultimate hygiene treatment, full clean, scale and polish with stain removal using state of the art system Prophyjet. The appointment lasts for 1 hour. £105.00

Our hygienists will also offer best advice on maintaining a good oral hygiene regime at home, with techniques on brushing and flossing and on the best products for you to use.

Keeping healthy gums

Your first line of defence against gingivitis or periodontal disease is prevention. On top of a good oral hygiene routine, having your gums checked regularly is recommended.

If you have any problems with loose teeth, bleeding gums, poor plaque control, periodontal disease, infection or recessive gums, you´ll be referred to one of our Periodontists. Our Periodontists performs a thorough clinical assessment of your gums around the affected teeth, before drawing up a personalised treatment and maintenance plan for your long-term oral health.

We are pleased to have Dr Kruti Desai and Dr Dhru Shah as part of our highly qualified team who are dental specialists in the treatment of gum disease.
