Dental Hygienists

Team of dental hygienists to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy

At Whitehall House Dental, our dental hygienists work alongside our dentists to ensure our patients receive optimum results. We encourage all patients to make an appointment with our hygienist to discuss their needs.

Maintaining dental hygiene is one of the best ways to look after your teeth and gums. It not only preserves your smile but protects against dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, infections, and bad breath.

Many patients are affected by periodontal disease at some stage of their life. Gum disease is not always apparent, and it develops due to the presence of bacteria in plaque, which is the hard and sticky film that covers your teeth.

Gum disease is associated with a range of medical conditions, such as immune-related disorders, heart disease, and diabetes. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause can also affect dental health.

Our skilled hygienists are trained to diagnose gum disease and identify other issues like tooth decay. We can create a personalised treatment plan and address any worries or concerns that you may have relating to your teeth. Our hygienists will remove all bacterial deposits, eliminate stains, and advise you about the best way to care for your teeth at home.

What do our dental hygienists do?

Our dental hygienists provide professional and premium teeth cleaning. We use a range of techniques and tools to tackle a build-up of plaque, tartar or food, heavy staining on your teeth, sensitive teeth and gums, or bad breath caused by plaque. Several areas of the mouth can be hard to reach, and we can remove hardened plaque safely from these spaces.

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and we believe in a preventative approach to oral health. A visit to the hygienist is generally always pain-free, and we will do everything to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We will always guide you through the process step-by-step and discuss the ways that we can maximise both the treatment and your comfort.

We recommend that patients book hygienist appointments once or twice a year, alongside regular dental check-ups. Our dentists will be able to advise you. Regular visits can prevent more costly or painful dental issues in the future.

Oral hygiene advice

In your appointment with our hygienist, you will receive tailored advice regarding how to take care of your teeth for optimal oral health. This will include recommendations around flossing, selecting an appropriate toothbrush, the effective angle of the brush for tooth cleaning, and dietary choices. Regular check-ups can play an important role in helping your teeth and gums stay healthy and reducing the risk of pain and discomfort.

Dental hygiene is about safeguarding your overall health. If you wish to quit smoking, they can also support you in your journey to a nicotine-free life.
