DENTAL HYGIENIST LONDON

DENTAL HYGIENIST IN LONDON

Dental hygiene is an important aspect of any dental health care practice, and dental hygienists in London are primarily concerned with detecting and treating gum disease, as well as preventing the need for additional dental health therapy.

A London dental hygienist’s primary duty in your dental treatment is to ensure that you understand the most effective techniques to keep your teeth plaque-free. Plaque is a buildup on your teeth caused by a combination of saliva, food, and bacteria. Plaque bacteria then produce compounds that can cause gum disease. This might result in your gums shrinking, bleeding, and possibly losing your teeth.

Dental hygiene is paramount to maintaining the long-term health of your teeth and gums, and by visiting our team of hygienists, we can help improve your oral health.

OUR PATIENT EXPERIENCES

Types of Dental Hygiene

What is AirFlow Stain Removal?

AirFlow is a system that removes dark brown, grey or yellow marks on your teeth that are visible but hard to get rid of using regular teeth whitening methods. Based on using a jet of compressed air, water and particles of bicarbonate, AirFlow polishes the teeth gently, wiping out any surface staining and leaving behind a bright white smile only possible through AirFlow. AirFlow is a method of teeth cleaning that is becoming increasingly popular and has become favoured by people who have severe teeth staining, such as people suffering from darker teeth genetically or smokers. Some more stubborn food stains can also be tacked by AirFlow, and the more common staining that can be removed with AirFlow include Tobacco, tea, coffee, curry and wine.

Plaque can also harden into tartar, which requires the use of specialised hygiene equipment to eliminate. This equipment is used by dental hygienists to remove tartar and clean your teeth above and below the gumline. Scaling and polishing is the term for this procedure. This is critical for the successful installation of crows and fillings. Teeth polishing is beneficial to both children and adults, and a hygienist can also apply a fluoride varnish to help prevent tooth decay.

Dental hygienists are also on hand to offer dietary advice and other preventative measures to avoid tooth decay in the future. This includes information on how to care for your mouth with a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, dental floss, and interdental brushes in between appointments.

Brushing your teeth regularly and avoiding sugary drinks and foods can have a significant impact on your dental hygiene practice.

Visit our dental hygienists at least twice a year to enjoy optimal oral health for you and your family members.
