Dental hygiene maintenance and treatment is important for making sure your gums stay healthy enough to accommodate your teeth.

Here at NB Dental, we can offer routine hygienist check-ups, treatment for gingivitis, and address more complex cases of periodontitis with a minimally-invasive approach.

Creating a Foundation for Healthy Teeth

During your routine hygienist appointments, we will thoroughly examine your gums to check for signs of inflammation, bleeding, plaque, and tartar. These symptoms could indicate the onset of gum disease which when caught early, can be prevented from evolving into advanced gum disease (periodontitis).

Whilst your dentist is responsible for issues concerning your teeth, your hygienist removes harmful deposits like plaque and tartar from your gum line, stopping these substances from attacking your gum tissue, and eventually, your bone. Gum disease continues to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults in England and Wales, but with regular hygienist appointments, this is a preventable condition.

Stabilising, Educating and Preventing

Our philosophy is to:

  • Stabilising: address the problems that have led to gum disease.
  • Educating: speak to you about your lifestyle and how this might be affecting your oral hygiene. Create a plan to reduce the possibility of gum disease in the future.
  • Preventing: make you aware of the importance of regular hygienist cleanings and how these stop gum diseases from occurring in the future.


At NB dental we want your hygiene experience to be as unique as you are, that’s why we have developed the hygiene menu. Taking inspiration from the selection available at your local coffee shop, we have had some fun with the options. You can even choose the flavours of polishing paste and fluoride varnish.

AirFlow® Tooth Polishing

Airflow is a state-of-the-art mode of cleaning that uses a mixture of jet water, compressed air and sodium bicarbonate. It can be likened to how you take your car in for a jet wash – except in this instance, it’s your teeth!

We recommend AirFlow® to patients who may have significant buildup of plaque and tartar that can’t all be removed with hand scaling equipment alone. It’s a supplementary treatment that gets rid of virtually all plaque and tartar staining in your mouth.
