Enjoy a professional clean with a visit to our hygienist Richmond

Are you looking to have a new hygienist Richmond to call your own? Here, at Sheen Dental, we welcome new patients to sign up to our practice and look forward to assisting you on your journey to good oral health.

Our modern practice in East Sheen offers patients the opportunity to have our dental specialists assist with the prevention of gingivitis and any signs of periodontal disease. These infections could result in a patient experiencing bad breath, visible staining and even early loss of teeth.

Through regular check-ups and cleaning with our hygienist Richmond you can prevent these conditions from existing or possibly becoming more severe.

What exactly is a dental hygienist and what do they do?

If you’re wondering what the role of a dental hygienist is in dentistry it involves preventive work. Hygienists work carefully to evaluate and assess patients’ dental health and can diagnose gum disease and other dental issues. They can also assist with professionally cleaning your teeth to remove any build-up of plaque and tartar present.

Treating periodontal disease to protect your teeth and gums

Did you know that if you were to leave a case of periodontal disease untreated it could cause lasting damage to both your teeth and gums? Patients may feel minimal pain or discomfort and so the signs are not always noticeable, but through preventive dentistry and the help of our hygienist Richmond you can treat it before it is too late.

One of the key roles of our hygienist is to help patients with providing smoking cessation advice and support, in addition to helping treat cases of gum disease. Assessing gum disease can be done by measuring the gaps between your gums and teeth in order to assess whether or not any treatment is needed.

For those patients who may feel anxious about the procedure it is possible to receive anaesthetic for a pain-free experience in a calm, safe environment.

How do hygienists help to ensure a healthy mouth?

Our hygienist is able to provide a hygiene treatment which removes any instances of plaque and calculus present that has built up on your teeth and gums over a period of time. The treatment also includes the removal of any staining visible on your teeth using antimicrobial materials and polishing. This will help you to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

For those patients that have any form of orthodontics or dentures or even a bridge, our hygienist is also able to offer advice and support for your dental hygiene needs.

By having your teeth professionally cleaned it will also help to minimise the risk of tooth loss and lower your risk of encountering tooth decay. In addition, you will greatly benefit from the treatment as you will lower the chance of needing fillings.

Patients that routinely clean and maintain their dental hygiene habits will be able to remain free from plaque and enjoy a healthy mouth overall.
