why visit the hygienist
The main role of a hygiene visit is to clean your teeth professionally – this is usually called a scale and polish.
At the same visit you are shown the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque and to keep your gums healthy. Professional removal of tartar and plaque and teaching you how to prevent it from reforming again, will go a long way to slowing the progress of gum disease. A clean, fresh smile is generally a healthy smile.
At the Dental Suite, Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham, we see many new patients presenting with gum disease. We put them on our Dental Suite hygiene programme to remove all the harmful deposit from under your gums to allow healing and to stabilise your gum health. Once your gums are stable we recommend you come and visit the hygienist every 3 to 6 months for 20 minutes. The added benefit of a hygienist visit is to have white, stain free teeth as well as clean and fresh breath.
