Dental Hygiene Treatment

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.

Hygiene therapy

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.

What is the role of a Dental hygienist?

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.

Why is this treatment so important?

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.

Air Polishing Treatment

Air polishing is a treatment that our dental hygienists offer. It is a proven, very effective technique for removing stains from the surfaces of teeth. As well as removing trapped food debris and plaque build-up from between the teeth, it is a gentle technique that uses a targeted jet of compressed air that is mixed with water and either sodium bicarbonate or glycine powders.  

Because the treatment is so gentle and pain-free, it is ideal for treating those with sensitive gums and teeth.  One of the aspects that makes the treatment so popular is the fact that it is highly effective at removing and lessening the appearance of stains on the teeth. So, if your teeth are stained from smoking or even a bit discoloured from the likes of regular tea, coffee and wine drinking - this treatment is ideal for you. It helps to lift these stains away, restoring the natural shine and clean appearance of your teeth before they became stained.
