Dental Hygienist Brentwood, Essex

A dental hygienist is someone who will look after the health of your gums and make some appropriate referrals to different dental specialists when necessary. A hygienist offers a service of scaling and polishing which is also known as professional teeth cleaning and polishing.

We recommend you visit a dental hygienist every 6 months or every 3 months if you are undergoing active orthodontic treatment unless advised otherwise. Your dentist may also recommend you have your teeth cleaned and polished before undergoing a cosmetic procedure.

The hygienist will provide instructions on how to care for your oral health at home and will carry out the teeth cleaning and polishing (scale & polish) for you.

If needed, the dental hygienist will recommend seeing a dental therapist or dentist for a general dental check-up

The dental hygienist will recommend suitable appointment recalls and answers any questions you might have. You will then leave the clinic with a healthier mouth.
