Treatment with the Dental Hygienist for Gum Disease

At your first visit, oral hygiene will be discussed and root planing (deep cleaning) will be started. In summary the treatment involves:
  • 45 minute long appointments
  • oral hygiene reviewed each time and advice given
  • a number of visits until all deposits are removed
  • Dr Sidi to review progress when hygiene treatment finished and any further treatment prescribed
What is Root Planing?

Root planing is a specialised cleaning that involves removing bacterial deposits and smoothing the root surface below the gum where gum disease is progresses.


A surface anaesthetic cream and local anaesthetic (as with a filling) are used for your comfort

It would be helpful for you to bring with you any toothbrush or cleaning aids (except water jet devices) that you are using to your first appointment.
