What is a Dental Hygienist?

Our Dental hygienists in Chelmsford are highly trained dental practitioners. Not only your go-to experts for preventive dental care, they are also your partners in ensuring that your smile remains vibrant and healthy. 

Trained to conduct thorough assessments of your oral health, they will:

✔️ Assess the health of your gums and the level of risk for dental decay and/or gum disease. 

✔️ Examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissues to identify any issues or irregularities. 

✔️ Remove any tartar and surface staining. 

✔️ Provide valuable guidance on proper brushing and flossing techniques, dietary choices that impact your oral health, and ways to prevent future dental issues.

Review of your Medical History

After welcoming you and making you comfortable, your dental hygienist will typically start by reviewing your medical history to ensure they are aware of any relevant health conditions or medications you may be taking. 

Thorough cleaning 

The hygienist will then proceed to clean your teeth using specialised instruments. This process is designed to remove any plaque, tartar, or stains from the surface of your teeth. 

Examination and assessment 

During the cleaning process, the hygienist will also examine your teeth and gums. This assessment helps in identifying any potential issues that may require further attention. 

Personalised oral care guidance  

Once your teeth are sparkling clean, the hygienist will provide you with personalised oral care guidance. They may recommend specific products, techniques, or changes to your routine to improve your oral hygiene.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental hygienist appointment offers preventive dental care. It involves a thorough examination, professional teeth cleaning, and oral health education to maintain and improve your oral health.

Depending on your individual oral care needs, you may require more frequent appointments. In general, many people find bi-annual appointments beneficial, however, your frequency can be discussed with your hygienist during your appointment.

Dental hygienist appointments are generally not painful. However, you may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during the cleaning process, especially if you have tartar build-up. Your hygienist will do their best to ensure your comfort.

Dental hygienists are trained to recognise common dental issues, but their primary role is preventive care. If they detect a potential problem during your appointment, they will recommend a follow-up visit with a dentist for a thorough diagnosis.

We recommend brushing and flossing your teeth before your appointment but don’t worry if you forget. Arrive with any questions or concerns you may have about your oral health, and your hygienist will address them during the visit.
