How can we help?

What is a hygienist?

Hygienists are your smile’s best friend. They are dental professionals who are trained specifically in the art of keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy. At your dental check-up, your hygienist will look out for the health of both your gums and teeth.

They provide a range of services like scaling and polishing to keep your overall oral health in top condition. They can also help you design a bespoke oral hygiene plan to prevent recurring problems like staining, bad breath, gum disease, plaque build-up and more.

Harley Street Dental Studio’s hygienists are armed with the powerful Airflow system – an innovative cleaning system that leaves you with that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling.

What can they do for me?

Many people think that a hygienist will just clean their teeth, in fact there is a lot more to it than that. Your hygienist is able to provide a thorough clean that will achieve more than you are able to with a toothbrush at home.


Stain removal

Drinking tea, coffee, red wine or fizzy drinks will gradually stain your teeth over time, your hygienist will be able to clean these stains away using natural products like baking soda for a whiter smile. Our hygienists also use the innovative AirFlow system which uses air, sodium bicarbonate and water together to clean stains from your teeth.


Fresh breath

A clean mouth means fresher breath!


Prevention of gum disease

Early signs of gum disease include bleeding gums when brushing. Your hygienist will test for this and if they spot symptoms, with regular appointments, they will be able to help deal with this before the disease has the chance to progress. It is important to pay attention to these symptoms as if left untreated, gum disease can lead to the movement or even the loss of teeth.


Oral hygiene plan

We will work with your individual needs to create a tailor made plan for optimum maintenance of your oral hygiene. This includes recommending the right products, different types of brushes and showing you the most effective ways to use them.


Dietary advice

The food we eat can affect our teeth, this could be through staining or acid erosion. If your diet has had a detrimental effect on your teeth, our hygienists can advise on changing your eating habits to prevent further harm.


Hygiene routine

We all know that sometimes life gets in the way of the perfect oral hygiene routine which is why we are here for you and recommend a couple of appointments each year to help keep you on the right track. A thorough clean from the hygienist will make it easier for you to maintain a healthy mouth in-between visits. Improved oral hygiene could even mean fewer visits to the dentist!

When asked what they liked best about Harley Street Dental Studio, one patient had warm words for the great advice she receives from our hygienist, Sally Gross. She said: “I have never left without Sally giving me some useful advice, tips and starter props!”
