Dental hygiene appointments are very important as regular professional cleaning (combined with good home-care) is the best way to keep your mouth clean and healthy. They will help maintain the condition of your teeth, improve the appearance of your smile and give you fresh breath.
Hygienists are specially trained to work in tandem with dentists to maximise the oral health of patients. They play an extremely important role within the practice and are mainly concerned with gum health, advising patients on correct daily care and keeping the mouth clean and healthy.
During your appointment the hygienist will give your teeth a thorough, professional clean. This process is called a scale and polish.
You will also be shown the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque in future. This combination of deep cleaning in the surgery and teaching how to prevent future build-ups at home, will go a long way to slowing the potential progress of gum disease.
The hygienist will also give you advice on diet and how this can help prevent dental decay. Regular visits and advice will help build your confidence in maintaining your oral health and achieving a healthy mouth.
If you have particular dental needs then the hygienist can work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs.
Good oral hygiene is essential for keeping you healthy and happy. By taking care of your teeth and gums, it can help to prevent:
Regular brushing and flossing allows for the removal of harmful bacteria, plaque and food particles from your mouth. It can also stop the plaque from calcifying and forming tartar that can cause cavities.
Using oral hygiene products like Airflow at the dentists or a Waterpick flosser at home can help remove stubborn plaque between teeth and along the gum line – something that regular brushing alone might not be able to do as effectively!
Scaling and polishing is usually pain-free. However, if you do have any discomfort, the hygienist can use an anaesthetic cream or give you a local anaesthetic.
It is important that you let the hygienist know at the time so they can help with your pain.
It is now widely recognised that it is best for hygienists to carry out this work. They are specifically trained to maximise the scale and polish process and can spend longer with you.
They are also expert at teaching patients how to look after their teeth and gums. The hygienist can also carry out preparatory appointments to get gums healthy and ready before your dentist restoring teeth with crowns or fillings.
The hygienist can also get your mouth clean and healthy in preparation for your dentist carrying out restorative work on your teeth (such as crowns and fillings).
There is a great deal that you can do to help both yourself and the hygienist, as only you are in control of your oral health between visits to the practice. Your hygienist will show you how to effectively remove plaque with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
They will also show you how to clean between your teeth with floss, tape or interdental brushes. There are many helpful oral care products now available, including specialist toothpastes, powered toothbrushes and mouthwashes.
Your hygienist will recommend those that are best for you.
We recommend you follow three simple steps to help keep your teeth and gums healthy:
Cutting down the amount of sugar you consume, and the number of times that you eat during the day, can help to reduce decay. Your hygienist will help you by looking at your diet and making recommendations for you to consider.
Chewing sugar-free gum after meals can also help to prevent tooth decay. Gum makes your mouth produce more saliva, which in turn cancels out the acid produced in your mouth after drinking and eating.
I genuinely cannot recommend this practice enough. I am a very anxious patient and would never go anywhere else.All staff are so welcoming, from the lovely people on the front desk, to the dentist, hygienist and support staff. Thank you!
I was initially quite nervous but Eloise and Dal were so kind, friendly and understanding I soon felt at ease. The experience wasn't as bad as I expected. Highly recommend 😀….
