As well as regular check ups with your dentist, it can also be very beneficial (and in some cases necessary to maintain optimum oral health) to visit a dental hygienist.
A dental hygienist is trained to work alongside your dental team to help improve your gum health. At your appointment they will give your teeth and gums a deep clean to help remove any hard plaque that is too hard to remove with your regular electric toothbrush at home. They will also diagnose any gum problems and give you advice on how to brush your teeth properly in order to prevent any long-term problems. The most common gum problem that dental hygienists treat is gum disease.
Do I Have Gum Disease?
90% of all adults in the UK are reported to have had gum disease to various degrees of severity. Whilst gum disease is a common condition, it shouldn’t be taken lightly as it can have extremely damaging effects on your gums and overall health.
Symptoms of gum disease:
By regularly visiting your dental hygienist you can detect the early stages of gum disease and prevent progressing to advanced gum disease which can result in tooth loss.
Cosmetically, a dental hygienist can help whiten your smile by removing stubborn stains from the likes of smoking and coffee. You will leave your appointment will gums that feel much healthier, squeaky clean teeth and brilliant advice on how to have a healthy smile.
