Articles What Exactly Can a Hygienist Do For My Smile?
You might assume you’ll only need to see a hygienist if you suffer from existing oral health problems, but this is not the case. Booking regular hygiene sessions can actually help to keep dental disease at bay. Our excellent dental hygienists offer services for those with healthy teeth and gums and for patients who need help with bad breath, staining and gum disease. They are also on hand to offer expert advice and guidance on everything from choosing the right toothbrush to giving up smoking.
How can seeing a hygienist help me?
Hygienists offer a broad spectrum of services. These include preventative treatments, oral health advice, cleaning services and treatment for gum disease and bad breath. The aim of regular hygiene sessions is to prevent new illnesses from developing and ease symptoms of existing problems.
When you see a hygienist they can help you in many different ways, from recommending toothpastes and showing you how to use an inter-dental brush to providing intensive treatments to remove plaque and tartar, shift surface stains and give your teeth a really good polish. We also offer preventative services for children. These include fluoride varnish and fissure sealant treatments.
As well as boosting your oral health, seeing a hygienist on a frequent basis can also help to keep your smile looking healthy and radiant. You’ll be amazed at the difference just one cleaning treatment can make and will leave sporting a smooth, shiny smile.
How often should I see a hygienist?
Ideally, we recommend annual sessions for patients who have good oral health. If you have gum disease, are prone to plaque or have a high risk of dental disease, we recommend more frequent appointments.
