Do I Need to See the Hygienist?

What’s the single most important way to make sure you have healthy teeth and gums? We believe it’s a visit to your dental hygienist.

A hygiene visit is one of the more affordable dental treatments available. Unfortunately, many people don’t realise they need to see the hygienist, whether to address an existing problem or potentially prevent a dental issue in the future.

Periodontal Disease is a Prevalent Issue

The majority people in the UK are affected by periodontal disease at some points in their lives.

You may have gum disease without even knowing it. Gum disease is often a silent ailment caused by the bacteria in plaque (soft sticky film), a substance that constantly forms on your teeth.

Gum disease has been linked to medical conditions including heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune-related conditions.

Hormones also have an effect in the mouth during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. These conditions are often seen in the mouth as an inflammatory response often before the patient is even aware of them.

Patients already diagnosed with underlying conditions are much more prevalent to periodontal disease, which emphasises that a healthy mouth is key to a healthy body.

Here’s an apt metaphor from our hygienist, Sarah:

“The mouth is the front door of the body… if you have dirt on your front door, you will trample it through the house, likewise if you have bacteria in the mouth, it can find its way into the body and compromise your general health.”

When gum disease is caught in the early stages, it is easily treated and preventable. Disease which has progressed can also be treated and stabilised.

Our highly-skilled dental hygienists are trained to diagnose gum disease and recognise other such issues as tooth decay.

At your hygiene appointment, we give you a full periodontal exam, checking the health of your gums and teeth. We will give you a bespoke treatment plan and discuss any issues of concern. Your treatment will include the removal of all bacterial deposits, removal of stains, and a home care plan for you to prevent further disease.

Please note: depending on your diagnosis, your treatment may require further appointments.

Booking Appointments is Easy

We always want dental care to feel accessible to you. When it comes to booking an appointment or consultation, it’s important to us that you have options. You can book online or call our friendly team on 0207 377 6762.

Guided Biofilm Therapy is Now Available

We are now using the premium dental hygiene treatment, guided biofilm therapy. This is an air flow technique using a fine powder with an antibacterial element. Guided biofilm therapy removes bacterial deposits above and below the gum line, and is the best way to remove staining.

Guided Biofilm Therapy

This technique is very gentle, and patients love the fresh feeling it gives the mouth. This treatment is highly advised for our Invisalign patients, as it works well around your attachments. Another reason we recommend guided biofilm therapy is that wearing aligners for 22 hours a day prevents the mouth’s natural self-cleansing function.

Please advise the reception team if you would like guided biofilm therapy, as we need a little more time and the fee is slightly higher — it’s the way forward!

We encourage our patients to see the hygienist on regular intervals, or as recommended by our team, to maintain a healthy mouth and give you confidence in smiling.

If you notice any symptoms such as: loose teeth, bleeding, sore or swollen gums, or bad breath, please see us as soon as possible. In many instances, the earlier we can detect an issue, the less treatment is required.
