During an appointment, our hygienists will carefully examine your teeth and gums, looking out for inflammation, bleeding, swelling and the presence of plaque and calculus. They will then remove any plaque and surface stains with gentle cleaning and polishing.
Seeing one of our hygienists on a regular basis will ensure that your teeth are kept in the best condition possible and will serve you well for the rest of your life. Your Lumino dentist or oral hygienist can put you back on the road to oral health by scaling and cleaning the hardened plaque (tartar) from your teeth. In some cases, a course of antibiotics may be prescribed. They will also advise you on how best to avoid the condition in future.
