Our hygienists can play a vital role in your oral healthcare routine, and can make a huge difference in our ongoing efforts to help you to keep your teeth for life.
Avoid decay and gum disease
The main role the hygienist plays is helping you maintain a healthy mouth, avoiding problems such as decay and gum disease (the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults).
Gum disease often goes unnoticed because it is generally painless, but over time it can cause lasting damage. With a good oral healthcare routine and regular visits to the hygienist its progress can be significantly slowed down or even stopped.
Giving your teeth a professional clean
During your visit your teeth will be cleaned professionally. The hygienist will gently remove any plaque from your teeth, together with tartar, which is a hardened form of plaque. They will also give your teeth a polish, making them feel fresh and clean and making it more difficult for the plaque to stick to them.
Oral health advice
The hygienist can also advise you on the best way to care for your teeth and gums, including an effective daily cleaning routine and following a healthy diet.
