At Fern Cottage we have a resident Hygienist.
Their aim is to educate patients in the care of teeth and gums.
They also demonstrate cleaning techniques and provide advice about the effects of diet.
Scaling, polishing, hand scaling,applying topical fluoride and fissure sealants would also be done by the Hygienist.
The role of Hygienist is increasingly important as the emphasis in dentistry changes to prevention of tooth decay.
A regular visit would therefore be extremely beneficial.
