Our hygienists, Clare, and
Julia, are vital members of Brixham Practice's dental team. Their role is fundamental in
maintaining good oral health.
Recent research has indicated that significant health benefits can result from
maintaining good standards of dental hygiene; gum disease is a major risk factor for
heart disease, stroke and certain forms of cancer, so maintaining good oral hygiene
could help reduce the risk.
As well as removing any hard deposits that have built up on your teeth, our hygienist
will help to keep plaque and tartar to a minimum.
Our hygiene appointments include:
• Recording plaque levels, measuring pocket depths and assessing how well you are
maintaining your oral hygiene
• The removal of plaque and tartar that has built up on the teeth and below the gum
• Making recommendations to your daily home care routine and offering any advice
• Assessing when your recall visit is needed - usually patients visit the hygienist
every six months, however if plaque and tartar builds up quickly in your mouth, the
hygienist may recommend you visit every three months

team, or one of our experienced dentists, will be only too happy to help you.
