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.
Dental Hygiene Treatments available at CJ Dental Studio
In the year 2013, the General Dental Council removed the need for a dentist to refer to a dental hygienist or dental therapist. This means hygienists and therapists can carry out their full scope of practice without the patient having to see a dentist first.
This type of teeth cleaning involves deep cleaning of your teeth and roots. Usually with the use of local anaesthetic to ensure a pain free and comfortable appointment. It is the most advanced hygiene clean we offer here at CJ Dental Studio.
If you have never seen a hygienist in our clinic, we would recommend that you book for an advanced hygiene cleaning with air polishing for your first hygiene visit. We will reserve 1 hour for this appointment, so you can discuss all your oral care concerns with our hygienist.
During this 30 minute visit our dental hygienist will carry out a routine check on the health of your gums, oral cancer screening and a classic hygiene clean with prophylaxis paste polishing. This type of hygiene clean is more suitable for the follow up appointments.
