Dental Hygiene

Preventing dental problems

Hygienist

Dental hygienists are specially trained to work with the dentist and play an important role in health care. They are mainly concerned with gum health.

Most people suffer from some form of gum disease and it is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. However, the disease develops slowly in most people but can be slowed down to a rate that should allow you to keep most of your teeth for life.

Our hygienists at our practice in Nantwich will show you the correct home care and how to remove plaque, while professionally cleaning the teeth. This is usually called scaling and polishing. They also give advice on diet and preventing dental decay. The hygienist will work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs depending on the levels of disease detected and visits may range from single to multiple.

This treatment is important because regular professional cleaning combined with looking after your teeth and gums well at home means a clean and healthy mouth which will improve your well-being and help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.

Above all, for the benefit of our patient’s dental health and safety, we believe in team work with a group approach to improving our understanding and knowledge of dental health.

Occasionally some hygiene treatment procedures may require the use of local anaesthetic. All our hygienists are qualified and skilled in this procedure.

Air Polishing

We are pleased to be able to offer Air Polishing to our patients via our team of hygienists.

Air Polishing is a system that uses a combination of air, water and a mild polishing agent to help remove unwanted stains, and brighten discoloured teeth.

Air polishing is highly efficient, and enables our hygienists to solely concentrate on staining caused by Smoking, drinking Red Wine, Coffee and Tea.

Air Polishing is a safe and effective way of removing these difficult stains, leaving you with a brighter, and in most cases, whiter smile.

It is great for brightening your smile for that special occasion.

Please note, this appointment differs from a routine hygienist appointment, and is considered a form of cosmetic treatment. The procedure offers an intensive form of polishing, and uses products which are not used in standard hygiene appointments; this is reflected in the Air Polishing Appointment Fee.
