Healthy teeth cannot live a long life without the foundation of healthy gums. This is where hygienist appointments come in.

Your hygienist is responsible for your gum health, and routinely removes plaque that builds up along your gum line over time. As gum disease is the primary reason for tooth loss in adults in the U.K, hygienist appointments are indispensable if you wish for your gums to remain a happy home for your teeth.

The steps taken during a hygienist appointment

A hygienist can help prevent gum disease in the following ways:

  • Perform a scale and polish to remove plaque from your gum line. This is essential, as plaque causes gum disease, and eventually tooth loss if it isn’t removed. Brushing and flossing won’t remove plaque, so routine appointments are vital.
  • Offer key advice on how to get a better way of brushing and flossing technique.
  • Advise on dietary changes you can make to reduce disease and decay.
  • Perform more complex treatment, if your gum disease has reached an advanced stage. This may involve taking a multidisciplinary approach, using some of the most up-to-date equipment, which we’re pleased to have at our disposal at InnovaDent Dental Clinic.

How will regular hygienist meetings benefit me?

  • They play a key preventive role in warding off gum disease and plaque accumulation.
  • Catch developing problems (that you may not be able to spot at home) early.
  • Maintain fresher breath, thanks to the regular removal of plaque from your gum line.
  • Learn how to improve your oral care routine.
  • Receive constructive advice on how to implement positive lifestyle changes, with a view to keeping your gums in good health.
