Mary will explain all the methods that can improve your oral health including the use of specific aids such as electronic toothbrushes, floss and mouthrinses. All these items will be customised for each individual so that you can get the best effect with the least of inconvenience.

  • Subgingival debridement
  • Air powered Prophylaxis (Prophyflex)
  • Use of topical medication to reduce bacterial inhabitation (PerioChip)
