Hygienist Services

What does a Dental Hygienist do?

Andrew house has two highly trained and experienced hygienists who work very closely with the dentists to ensure that your gums and teeth are kept healthy for life.

This is done through a combination of regular scaling and polishing with continual education and coaching for you, so that you can learn how to better take care of your teeth at home.

Why is it important to see a Hygienist?

Your gums are the foundation of healthy teeth and a major factor in keeping your teeth for your whole life. Without healthy gums, teeth become mobile and more susceptible to decay.

The hygienist services will not only remove build ups of plaque and calculus on your teeth but they will teach you how to stop it coming back again. They take a ‘whole person’ approach, using visual aids, information leaflets and practical advice on diet, care and cleaning to help prevent and slow the effects of gum disease.

Can the dentist clean my teeth?

Some dentists will provide a scale and polish, but our dentists at Andrew House understand that our hygienists have been specially trained and are happy to refer to them where appropriate.

    Practising good dental health is an essential part of life. It is not only important for maintaining healthy gums, teeth, and mouth but it also enhances appearance as well as the quality of life. At Andrew’s House Dental Practice we strive to ensure that all our esteemed customers wear a grand healthy smile at all times. We do this by offering a wide range of the finest hygienist services in Tonbridge such as:

    Deep Cleaning

    Deep cleaning services often involve the removal of plaque and tartar build-up. It is beneficial because it helps to slow down or prevent the progress of gum diseases. This leaves the teeth’s surfaces spick and span with a smooth and nice finish that discourages bacteria from piling up. This also helps to keep your breathe more pleasant while at the same time reducing bad smells and tastes.

    Our deep cleaning services go beyond cleaning your teeth. Our team of highly experienced and trained hygienists will always go the extra mile to thoroughly inspect your gums. This makes sure that there are no signs of periodontal diseases that can lead to damaged jaw bones or teeth loss. Keep in mind that dental hygiene does not only affect the mouth region. Experts have linked periodontal disease and poor gum health to diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, and other health complications.

    Gum Therapy

    If you are suffering from advancing gum disease, there is no need to worry because you will be in great hands at Andrew’s House Dental. Our expert hygienist services will take you through NSPT (Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy). This is where they get rid of all harmful deposits in the gum pocket. This creates a smooth root surface that encourages the re-attachment of teeth to gum tissues. It is important because it helps bring back comfort and fitness to the mouth.

    Intensive Polishing 

    We love seeing our clients with polished dazzling smiles the main reason we offer intensive polishing services. This helps to expertly and gently remove stubborn stains, and plaques form your teeth. The process also helps to prevent decay and gum diseases. By doing so, we guarantee that you will have spotlessly clean teeth in their natural colour. We can do this on sensitive teeth and dental implants.

    Taking Care of Tooth Fissures 

    Many people will miss the small grooves and pits that appear on the surface of the tooth especially in the molars and back teeth. Our hygienists will take care of these professionally to avoid bacterial build-up and deterioration of teeth.

    Invaluable Education 

    We understand that you cannot be at the dentist’s office 24/7. This is why we offer invaluable knowledge to all our customers. When you walk out of our offices, you will be equipped with life-saving skills about achieving and maintaining tiptop oral health for the rest of your life. The professionals also recommend the best equipment and products to use for your personalized daily cleaning regime. Note that our hygienists work closely with our dentists to ensure you only get the best services on this side of town.
