Look no further than Sheen Dental for a hygienist in Richmond!

For many people, going to see a hygienist can almost be more important than a dental check-up. Keeping their teeth and gums clean and healthy can be seen as a top priority for many, as it enables them to avoid more expensive dental care if issues such as gingivitis and periodontal disease were to develop. Here at Sheen Dental, our hygienist in Richmond can help with the prevention of such issues, which is really important when periodontal disease doesn’t have any noticeable symptoms such as pain, and yet it can have long-lasting detrimental effects on your teeth and gums.

By visiting our hygienist, you can avoid bad breath, staining and early loss of teeth.

Hygienists can also help with advice about quitting smoking as this can affect the colour of your teeth and can also cause other more serious issues, such as cancer. The help and support you can receive from your hygienist can be instrumental in realising your goals of quitting smoking for good.

What does a regular visit to the hygienist involve?

A regular visit to your hygienist at Sheen Dental will include a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. If you have any plaque or calculus that needs removing, your hygienist will do this to ensure that everything remains healthy in your mouth. If you have any staining, this will be removed by polishing and administering pholyatic, antimicrobial materials. Your teeth will be squeaky clean and ready for you to smile! This process of scaling and polishing is extremely thorough and will give your regular brushing and flossing efforts the extra boost you need.

Once treatment is completed, your hygienist may also offer you hints and tips on how to continue to keep your teeth plaque free by advising on brushing and flossing techniques, as well as prescribing the correct sized interdental brush for your teeth.

Why do I need to visit a hygienist in Richmond?

A visit to your hygienist is really important in helping you to maintain healthy teeth and gums, preventing tooth decay and ultimately, fillings and even tooth loss. The hygienist’s support in oral care will also provide you with fresh minty breath, so it’s well worth your time keeping on top of looking after your teeth and gums. If you have fresh breath and great teeth, we’re pretty sure you will feel confident and happy to smile for the camera too!
