What is a dental hygienist?Dental care must include regular hygiene visits. In addition to offering, you advise on any preventative products you might need to protect your teeth and gums, our highly trained dental hygienists can show you how to correctly take care of your teeth at home.
Why do I need to see a dental hygienist? Our hygienists remove plaque and work to prevent gum disease.
On your teeth, a sticky bacteria-based covering called plaque is continually forming. If not thoroughly removed with a brush, this hardens to become tartar, which is impossible to remove at home. Periodontal disease, which results in bleeding gums, mobile teeth, and eventually tooth loss, is brought on by persistent plaque and calculus.
You can maintain good oral health by scheduling routine appointments with your dentist and dental hygienist, which will help you avoid plaque build-up and address any issues before they become too serious to handle.
What can I expect from a dental hygienist appointment?You will receive a private cleaning from one of our skilled dental hygienists. Their primary goal is to solve problems with oral health. A "scaling and polishing," or private dental cleaning, helps fend off gum disease. Additionally, our dental hygienists will demonstrate to you how to correctly brush your teeth at home and how to keep your teeth free of plaque.
Adult customers with a lot of decay will receive advice from our hygienists in London that fluoride can be applied during a private dental clean for their benefit. To eliminate any bacteria that may be causing gum disease, anti-bacterial gels and solutions can also be placed under the gum. Our hygienists might also recommend quitting smoking.
