HEALTHY GUMS, HEALTHY MOUTH
Improve your overall body health by maintaining gum health
Visits to the hygienist should be a regular part of your oral hygiene routine. Unlike dentists, hygienists focus on providing a deep clean of your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar that has built up since your last visit. If left, these deposits can lead to gum disease, bad breath and eventually tooth loss.
Benefits of Seeing The Hygienist
Hygienists are trained to provide tailored advice about how you can alter your oral hygiene routine to ensure your teeth and gums remain as healthy as possible. During your visit, you can discuss anything from the ideal brushing technique to the benefits of flossing, and even the different foods you should avoid to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Hygienist appointments can also be beneficial if you’re concerned you may be developing gum disease. Early symptoms include bad breath, swollen gums and bleeding when you brush your teeth.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do hygienist appointments cost?
The price of hygienist appointments varies from patient to patient, but our fees begin at £30.00.
Do I need to see a dentist before I book a hygienist appointment?
We often recommend visiting the dentist to discuss any problems you may be having before booking your hygienist appointment. However, if you’re choosing to have more regular hygiene sessions or you have already discussed a hygiene plan with the dentist then there is no reason why you shouldn’t book separate appointments.
Are hygienist appointments available in the same practice?
Yes. Our hygienists work alongside our dentists at Laffan Dental so you can easily transition from one to the other during your visit.
