So, what is the role of a dental hygienist?


A dental hygienist performs a number of treatments, and their main role involves preventive dentistry work. They are able to assess the state of your teeth and gums and provide an experienced evaluation from a dental perspective. This includes diagnosing any potential gum disease and dental issues that may arise in patients. To remove the appearance of plaque and tartar our hygienist is also able to professionally clean your teeth. This will go a long way in preventing the risk of gingivitis and other common gum diseases to occur.


Did you know that in cases where patients suffer from a periodontal disease it could present itself in the form of bad breath or signs of staining on your teeth?


However, thanks to regular check-ups and meticulous cleaning it is possible to prevent these dental issues from happening.


Do you wish to protect your teeth and gums? Our hygienist Richmond is able to assist with providing professional teeth cleaning. The treatment also involves the assessment of your teeth and gums to determine whether or not there are any signs of gum disease. This is carried out by a simple procedure that measures the gaps present between your teeth and gums to see if any treatment is required. If you find that procedures tend to make you feel somewhat anxious, please don’t worry as it is possible to have the examination performed under anaesthetic for a stress-free experience.


Everything you need to know about treating periodontal disease


It’s important to note that if a patient were to leave a possible case of gum disease untreated it may lead to worsening the condition and the symptoms may increase causing further damage. In order to minimise any negative effects, we recommend visiting our practice for regular check-ups and cleaning to ensure early detection can be made for any dental problems. In some cases, there are no visible symptoms, and the infection causes no pain or discomfort, so the patient is unaware of the issue arising. Thanks to the help of a dental hygienist this can be detected and treated before it evolves into something more serious.


What treatments do hygienists offer to ensure healthy teeth and gums?


Here at the practice our experienced hygienist is able to perform a hygiene treatment on your teeth and gums in order to remove plaque and calculus present in your mouth. It is common for this to take place and can be easily remedied through routine daily brushing and having your teeth professionally cleaned by a dental practitioner at least once a year.
