Hygienist Treatments

It’s important to visit your dental hygienist regularly to remove plaque from your teeth and reduce your risk of tooth decay.

Why are hygienist treatments important?

Dental hygiene and professional teeth cleaning is a crucial part of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. Over time, harmful bacteria can collect on teeth and gums to form plaque. If this is not cleaned off your teeth, it could:

Cause gum disease

Lead to tooth decay and tooth loss

Harden to become tartar, which is more difficult to remove

Lead to other diseases which affect your overall general health, such as heart disease or diabetes

How can you keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy?

The best way to maintain good oral health is to adopt and follow good oral hygiene practices at home, including brushing and flossing correctly, and using antibacterial mouthwash.

This should be combined with regular visits to your dental hygienist for a full professional cleaning.

What can you expect from hygiene appointments at FY Smile?


First of all, we’ll do a thorough check-up of your teeth and gums to decide on the right hygiene treatment for you.


Our hygiene department is designed around the most current, scientific concept in dental hygiene for your oral care and wellness.


It’s called Guided Biofilm Therapy. It is a special protocol which uses airflow jets to disrupt ‘biofilm’ (harmful plaque that builds up on your teeth) before other treatments such as scaling.


In this state-of-the-art solution, the first step is to use a ‘disclosing’ powder which reveals where the biofilm is on your teeth. Then, we use specially designed handpieces that remove biofilm safely and precisely using air and water. With the help of the disclosing powder, we are able to clearly see whether it has been removed.
