Prevention is at the heart of everything we do at High Brooms Dental Clinic. Our hygienists play a very important role within our team, being mainly concerned with preventative dental health and treating gum disease, showing you correct ways to look after your teeth at home.
One of the most pleasant aspects of visiting our hygienist is receiving a clean and polish using the latest equipment and a very gentle technique. After the treatment your mouth will feel fresher and your teeth will look brighter.
You can book in with the hygienist at any time; just speak with your dentist or ask at reception for further details.
Along with the dentist, our hygienist will provide oral hygiene advice including dietary advice, home mouth care, the use of fluoride and all the latest gadgets which will help maintain your oral health.
Hygienists are specifically trained in maintaining and improving the health of your gums. Most people need to see the hygienist two or three times a year. This will ensure that the gums remain as healthy and strong as possible. Sometimes, for more advance cases of gum disease, careful treatment planning is necessary, which may involve a course of several longer visits. At these visits, our hygienist will gently and thoroughly clean the diseased areas of the mouth that cannot be reached easily.
The majority of people will suffer from gum disease at some point in their life but they are frequently unaware of it. In some cases, it can be very destructive and may lead to early tooth loss if it is left undiagnosed and untreated. We take this very seriously and our hygienists play a huge role in its detection, monitoring and treatment.
Research has shown that good cleaning techniques significantly reduce the risk of gum disease, which has also been linked to heart disease, so please follow our advice and take good care of your oral hygiene. It also helps prevent new cavities, fillings needing replacement, gum recession and more dental problems and afflictions.
A clean and healthy mouth not only improves your appearance and gives you fresh breath, regular appointments with a hygienist together with your homecare routine will result in huge dental benefits.
