Hygiene Treatments

Isle of Wight Cosmetic Treatment

The dental hygienist has many roles, all vital in preserving your well-being, preventing disease and helping you face the challenges of maintaining health in our modern world.

Who’s the most important member of the clinical team?
(Don’t let the dentist hear because it isn’t him.)
It’s the dental hygienist!

No treatments the dentist provides will be successful if the patient’s gums become diseased or tooth brushing is poor.

It’s the hygienist’s job to keep the mouth healthy and prepare the way for any further treatments.

Hygiene treatments are about preventing disease and maintaining health. Not just mouth health but the health of the whole body. Over recent years there has been more and more evidence to link disease in the mouth with other serious illness like heart attacks and strokes.

Here are some of the things the hygienist can do for you:

  • Clean tartar away from teeth to treat and prevent gum disease and keep your mouth feeling and smelling fresh.
  • Professionally polish teeth to remove the staining you can’t remove at home.
  • Teach you how to keep your mouth clean and your breath fresh. Show you how to clean between your teeth and in other hard-to-get-to places.
  • Whiten your teeth for a brighter, whiter smile.
  • Apply fluoride to your teeth to reduce sensitivity and prevent decay.
  • Talk to you about diet and lifestyle issues to prevent erosion and decay and promote general good health.
  • Individually tailor treatment plans for you and recommend how often you should attend.
  • Answer your questions about a range of dental treatments so that you feel fully informed and empowered to choose treatment options.
  • Give advice on how to look after your children’s teeth.
  • If you’re a carer, give you advice on how to properly look after the mouths of elderly or disabled people.
  • If you’re a teacher visit your school to give oral health advice or provide you with appropriate information.
