Birchwood Dental Practice provides a hygiene service.
NHS Hygiene Visit
Your dentist will assess your periodontal (gum) health at your check up appointment. Following this examination your dentist will discuss with you whether or not you would benefit from seeing the therapist to improve your periodontal (gum) health. A simple scale & polish for gingivitis is included in Band 1, treatment for periodontal disease is included in Band 2.
Private Hygiene Visit
You may ask to see the therapist directly on a private basis. This will cost £35 per scale and polish visit, or £90 per periodontal treatment visit. The hygienist will examine your gum health, discuss and carry out any hygiene treatment eg. scale and polish.
