If someone isn’t showering properly, people tend to notice. In fact, in such a situation, people will probably comment. Although the taunts of strangers might not sound like a good thing, the fact that poor dental hygiene can go relatively unnoticed is a problem. It is only at their most extreme that dental difficulties are recognised by the public gaze and by this point, it is often too late to take anything but drastic measures in response to them.
A hygienist’s job is to ensure you never need to see your dentist for anything more than a friendly check up. If a dentist focuses on dental practice across the board, including drastic action, the hygienist focuses on prevention and, as folk wisdom will have you know, ‘prevention is better than cure’.
Sure, you can clean your teeth at home. Hopefully you do it every morning and night! Sadly, even the most comprehensive amateur brusher will never keep their mouth entirely free of plaque – there are some places a normal brush just can’t reach. When visiting a hygienist, however, you will undergo a special form of cleaning called ‘scaling and polishing’, which will cover such problem areas. As an added aesthetic bonus, surface marks will be cleaned and your teeth will be polished too!
Gum disease is a subtle trickster that can evade even the most watchful eye. Thankfully, the hygienist is more watchful than that and can spot the signs in time to help your gums.
This is the one thing that people will comment on. Bad breath stems from poor oral hygiene and thankfully, the hygienist can help halt it and protect you from the jeers of passersby.
Our hygienists know that you are your primary defense against dental decay and, subsequently, are happy to pass on their hard won knowledge so as to ensure you are brushing as effectively as you possibly can. They will also keep you up to speed with the latest developments in dental care products.To arrange a dental hygienist appointment contact the team at Harley Street Dental Studio in the heart of London.
