What is the role of a hygienist?

The role of a hygienist Richmond is to support you and support your smile, to enable it to be as healthy and attractive as possible. All smiles deserve to be well looked after and working with a dental hygienist can allow you to smile with confidence. You can protect yourself against issues such as gingivitis and periodontal disease through accessing preventive services. This can help you avoid suffering from bad breath and can also prevent you from losing teeth before their time. Keeping up with appointments can also stop unwanted blemishes such as staining. Issues with periodontal care can often go unnoticed, but by visiting a hygienist, you can maximise your oral health. The reduced risk of tooth decay developing, alongside other dental care, can also virtually negate the need for fillings. You could also benefit from fresh minty breath after a deep clean. If this sounds like the kind of aid you could benefit from in your dental care, then you should read on to discover more about the services provided, before reading about how to contact our practice to access the treatment and support that you need.

What services are available?


You can work with your hygienist to determine the best course of action for you and your smile. Initially we will work hard to remove any plaque and calculus on your teeth to thoroughly clean them and this will allow you to maintain a healthy mouth. We can remove stains and polish your teeth before applying treatment to the surface of the teeth to help protect them. Your hygienist will work with you to determine the level of work you require. Our hygienist Richmond can also treat any chronic periodontal disease that has arisen by scaling and root planing in order to maintain the health of gums and integrity of teeth. We can also give you advice on smoking cessation which if followed can be hugely beneficial, not only to dental health but to your general health. Your dentist will also recommend the best cleaning methods for you to use at home to ensure your oral hygiene is kept up.
