Emergency Care

Our hygienist appointments are designed to improve gum health and support at-home oral health efforts.

With healthy gums, you can live with the peace of mind that your teeth have a healthy cocoon in which to function.

What is a hygienist appointment?

The purpose of a hygienist appointment is to examine the condition of your gums. Your hygienist will perform a routine cleaning of your gums, eradicating plaque and tartar that naturally accumulate on your teeth as a result of acids being released when carbohydrates are consumed.

All adults should see the hygienist at least twice a year, as everyone will develop a degree of plaque and tartar. If left to settle, these substances can inflame your gums and begin to eat away at your gumline and jawbone.

Putting prevention first

Prevention is the core of everything we do here at Circ Dental, especially when it comes to protecting your gums. Our friendly hygienists will explain how to practice good brushing and flossing techniques at home, as this can significantly reduce your risk of gum disease, helping you avoid treatment in the future.

If you are presenting with symptoms of gingivitis (early onset gum disease) or periodontitis (advanced gum disease).

Airflow® Polishing technology at Circ Dental

Our state-of-the-art ultrasonic Airflow® system is a supplementary cleaning method to remove almost all traces of plaque and tartar in difficult-to-reach areas of your mouth. We highly recommend this gentle cleaning method for patients with stubborn staining along their gum line and who want brighter and healthier-looking teeth.

Airflow® uses a combination of water, powder particles, and compressed air to remove staining efficiently. It is particularly effective for patients with braces and incurred staining during the brace-wearing period. Your dentist can diligently use the Airflow® hand scaler to clean underneath each bracket and between teeth.


1. Does plaque and tartar affect people differently?

Certain individuals are more prone to plaque and tartar due to factors like hormone imbalances, lifestyle factors and age. We may recommend that you attend routine hygienist appointments more often if you:

  • Smoke.
  • Consume more than 14 units a week of alcohol.
  • Have a significant amount of plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth.
  • Are pregnant.

2. Why choose us for your routine dental and hygiene treatment?

Our desire to offer affordable routine maintenance plans is underpinned by a strong prevention-focused mindset. Our plans are designed to help you spread the cost of your dental and hygiene maintenance and to help you avoid costly restorative treatment, should you need it.

Our practice is equipped with digital systems that enable the fast diagnosis of gum disease, and our dentists are proficient in providing treatment that will reduce symptoms pertaining to gum disease so that you no longer have to worry about it progressing.
