Hygienist

About this treatment

Over time, our teeth naturally discolour through habits such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee and wine. Our teeth can stain or discolour even with regular brushing and flossing. A hygienist is able to brighten your smile by removing any surface staining. 

A hygienist will freshen your breath, remove any plaque and thoroughly clean your teeth. The health of your gums will also be checked, and you will be offered advice on how to maintain good oral health.

Your dentist may recommend you to see a hygienist as they are specifically trained in cleaning teeth, and offering advice on improving your general oral hygiene.

Questions about this treatment

A hygienist can clean in difficult-to-reach areas of the mouth. A hygienist will remove plaque which has built up and hardened over time. Plaque, if left untreated, can cause dental decay, eventual tooth loss or gum disease. A hygienist can identify early signs of gum disease as well as freshening your breath.

Whilst brushing and flossing is important, a hygienist is specialised in thoroughly cleaning teeth and gums as well as spotting early signs of gum disease and mouth cancer. They also remove plaque which can become impossible to remove when built up in areas that are hard to reach.
