We at Brigstock Dental have long term health and prevention at the heart everything that we do. We have built a dedicated hygiene room to ensure continuity of care and the importance of keeping healthy teeth and gums for life.

A hygienist's main work is to prevent and treat gum disease. Perhaps the most important part of their job is to show you the best ways to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky, whitish deposit that forms on your teeth when bacteria mixes with food and saliva. The bacteria in plaque produce chemicals that cause gum disease. In turn, this can lead to bleeding gums, gum shrinkage and ultimately tooth loss.
