Dental Hygienist

It’s important to maintain regular trips to your Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienist

Many of us take personal Hygiene seriously so why not Oral Hygiene?

The Dental Hygienist will help prevent and treat Gum Disease. They will professionally clean your teeth by removing plaque build up which if left, can cause bad breath and Tooth Decay. They not only clean your teeth but they are also able to show you the best ways to keep your teeth clean and plaque free by showing you how to Brush, Floss  and use Interdental Brushes.

The Hygienist can also advise you on how changes to your lifestyle can improve your oral hygiene such as Diet, Smoking, Medical History and correct Teeth Cleaning.

Regular trips to the Dental Hygienist combined with looking after your teeth and gums will help to keep your mouth clean and healthy.


Can my Dentist perform a Dental Hygienist Treatment?

Most Dentists do carry out Hygienist work but often Dentists cannot spend a long time discussing your dental history and teeth cleaning habits.

However as Dental Hygiene is their main priority, a Dental Hygienist can work with you to come up with a plan to ensure your teeth stay clean and healthy, this may require more than regular appointments.

Often is the case that a Dental Hygienist will work with the patient to prep and clean their teeth ready for Dental Treatments i.e. Crowns, Fillings, Dentures.

At Bromsgrove Dental all of our Dentists are fully qualified to perform Hygienist treatments and will gladly spend the time to discuss your oral health and how it can be improved.

Should children visit the Dental Hygienist?

Definitely! Children would certainly benefit from visiting the Hygienist to ensure their teeth are being cleaned properly by both parent and child.

It can be a fun learning experience (especially using the Blue Disclosing Tablets) and can help them be more aware of Dental Hygiene.

I have Sensitive Teeth, will Hygienist Treatment hurt?

Treatment is usually pain free however if you a nervous or have sensitive teeth then the hygienist can use an anaesthetic cream or even give you a local anaesthesia.

Please let us know in advance prior to you appointment if you are worried or suffer from sensitivity and we can ensure that your treatment will be as comfortable and worry free as possible.
