Dental hygienists’ clean teeth and examine patients for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis and provide other preventive dental care. They also educate patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health.

What happens during a hygiene appointment and why? During your hygiene sessions the key aim is to improve your oral health, to reduce your risk of dental decay and/or gum disease. To do this we must first assess the health of your gums and your level of risk. The hygienist will look at, and chart on the computer, areas of your mouth susceptible to disease. This is an important baseline to help monitor any changes to your gum health in the future. We can monitor gum swelling (inflammation) and bleeding, bacterial plaque, gum shrinkage (recession), wobbly teeth (mobility), and whether there has been any destruction to the structures which support each tooth If your gums are healthy, and you do not have any areas that are inflamed (swollen) or bleed easily, then the hygienist will help you maintain the health of your teeth and gums with tailored advice and removal of any tartar and surface staining. You are likely to hear some unfamiliar terminology whilst the hygienist and dental nurse are recording areas of health and disease, but don’t worry this will be explained during and at the end of your appointment!
