If you are looking for a Hygienist in Richmond, here at Sheen Dental we have specialists in the prevention of gingivitis and periodontal disease which leads to, bad breath, early loss of teeth and staining. Periodontal disease can often go unnoticed because it’s painless, but over time can cause lasting damage to your teeth and gums.
Treating periodontal disease and giving smoking cessation advice and support is key role our hygienists will provide. They will measure the gaps between the gums and teeth to explore whether any necessary periodontal treatment is needed to prevent the disease from progressing. Giving anaesthetic to patients will enable a pain free experience.
Our Hygiene treatments are very thorough and include the removal of any plaque and calculus that may have built on your teeth and below the gums to ensure a healthy mouth. Your treatment would also include the removal of staining, by polishing and applying pholyatic, anti-microbial materials.
Your teeth and gums will be assessed to determine the amount of plaque removal you will need and risk factors will be highlighted.
Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes. This process is also known as scaling and polishing.
The hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so that they remain free from plaque in the future. You will be advised on the best tooth brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
Minimised risk of tooth loss.
Reduced risk of developing tooth decay and need for fillings.
Fresh minty breath.
Our hygienists also include providing dietary advice to people of all ages. Here at Sheen Dental we recommend children see the hygienist on a regular basis. Our hygienists may dye plaque on the teeth to highlight any areas missed when using a toothbrush and offer advice on brushing techniques and flossing. Fluoride can also be applied to reduce dental caries.
They will also help you with specific dental hygiene needs, for example if you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic braces or a dental implant.
As a member of the dental team the hygienist is there to motivate and encourage regular hygiene appointments to maintain your oral health. Our hygienists will guarantee a programme tailor-made especially for you and ensure you are at ease at all times.
