Visiting a dental hygienist will offer you the deepest clean possible; it’s like giving your teeth a full service. With the latest technology and equipment the hygienist is able to give a thorough clean which can be very beneficial. Improper oral hygiene causes build up of plaque on the surface of teeth which can lead to dental carries, gum irritation and even foul-smelling breath. Keeping your teeth clean by following a good routine like brushing, flossing and making regular visits to a hygienist can prolong the life of teeth.

We recommend that a dental hygienist should be seen every six months (if you smoke then additional visits maybe suggested) to ensure good oral health and early detection of any tooth decay or other oral problems that might not always be visible. A dental hygienist is able to remove hardened plaque (tartar) and clean the areas that are hard to get to, like areas close to the gum line that can be missed by brushing alone, giving you a deep clean that you can see and feel.

Benefits of seeing a hygienist:
  • Stain free, brighter teeth
  • Early detection of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Prevents bad breath (as a deep clean removes bits between teeth that can cause a bad odour)
  • Mouth cancer screening if necessary

Standard visits to our dental hygienists will help detect early signs of the two main causes of tooth loss, decay and gum disease. You will also receive valuable advice on how to maintain good oral health at home and be able to discuss any concerns.

A Dental Hygienist is a specially trained in the prevention and treatment of gum (periodontal) disease, which is the main cause of adult tooth loss and to give advice on all aspects of oral health.
The Dental Hygienist will: - Check the patient’s medical history and ask the patient if they have any dental problems. - Discuss oral health, for example the treatment and prevention of gum (periodontal) disease, receding gums, tooth wear. - Give oral hygiene advice, for example tooth brushing technique. - Check the appearance of the gums, see if there is any plaque or bleeding. - Remove any hard deposits (calculus) and stain by scaling the teeth. - Polish the teeth.
