Why Is Oral Hygiene Important?
Regular visits to a dental hygienist is an essential aspect in keeping your gums and teeth healthy. Regular visits to a hygienist combined with dental check-ups and looking after your teeth and gums at home will greatly improve the appearance of your teeth and your oral health
Regular hygiene visits ensure that hidden and difficult-to-reach plaque and tartar is removed improving the health of your teeth and gums.
Hygienists can also help you maintain brighter, whiter teeth. Scaling with an ultra-sonic cleaner and polishing removes surface stains, leaving you with a fresher, brighter smile.
Your hygienist can also provide advice on how to improve your oral health through changes in lifestyle or diet, offer a tailored at home cleaning routine and teach you good cleaning techniques, allowing you to maintain a healthy smile at home.
A hygiene appointment consists of a 20 minuet session which includes…
An initial full mouth examination assessing the health of your gums and teeth
The use of an ultra-sonic scalar which vibrates to remove any plaque or tartar build-up both above and below the gum line
A full mouth polish to remove any surface stains
Oral health advice and demonstration of interdental cleaning aids for you to use at home
There’s Nothing To Worry About…
While visits to the hygienist have been given a bad representation in the past, here at Bewdley Dental Practice we make it our priority to ensure that every visit is a comfortable and pleasant experience for all our patients.
Our hygienists have built up many years of experience and all share a passion in providing patients with a pain-free, beneficial experience. We receive lots of comments from patients who are surprised at how pain-free the treatment was and how wonderfully clean and fresh their mouths feel following their visit.
We have a hygienist working with us at the practice everyday of the week. Often patients like to combine their check-ups with their hygiene cleans in one visit, giving the mouth a full MOT along with some TLC.
Please note that this is a private treatment and currently a 20 minuet session is £39. If you are new to the practice, or have not had hygiene treatment before, we recommend that you have a check up prior to booking in for a clean.
