Dental Hygiene

Our in-house hygienists are specially trained to alongside the dentist and care for our patients. Hygienists play an important role in dental health care. They are primarily concerned with gum health, showing you correct home care and applying preventive materials to the teeth and gums.

Hygienists Help Prevent Gum Disease

Their main role of hygienists is to professionally clean your teeth. We call this scaling and polishing. However, their most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. They work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs. All hygienists in our Hertfordshire practice are highly trained and experienced.

Hygienists carefully remove the deposits that build-up on the teeth, while teaching you how to do it at home. This goes a long way in slowing the progress of gum disease. By discussing your diet, and recommending other preventive measures, your tooth decay can also be slowed down.

Scaling and polishing are usually pain-free. However, if you do have any discomfort, the hygienist can use a local anesthetic.
