Hygienist Services

The dental hygienist will save teeth by preventing and treating gum disease, helping people get rid of associated problems like bad breath.

Hygienist Services

  • Dental hygienists and dental therapists are specially trained to work with the dentist to give care to patients and can help with your treatment plan.

They play an important part in dental health care.

  • Dental hygienists are mainly concerned with ‘preventive’ dental health and treating gum disease – showing you the right way of looking after your oral hygiene at home to help you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. That includes professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar (usually called a ‘scale and polish or prophylaxis). Their most important role is to show you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms on your teeth.
  • Hygienists give advice about diet and about preventing tooth decay. The hygienist will work with your dental team to provide oral health care tailored to your needs.

Step One :

Book your hygienist appointment

Step Two :

Your hygienist will carefully remove the hard deposits of tartar (or ‘calculus’) that build up on the teeth and teach you how to prevent them coming back. This will do a lot to slow the progress of gum disease.

Scaling and polishing usually are pain-free. However, if you do have any discomfort the hygienist can use anaesthetic creams, or give you some local anaesthetic. It is important that you let the hygienist know at the time so they can help with your pain.

They will show and tell you how to look after your mouth at home. The hygienist may also suggest giving up smoking, as this will reduce staining and improve your general health.

Step Three :

Follow you healthy routine at home and re-visit your hygienist regularly.

The golden rule is that you should schedule an appointment every six months.
