Dental hygienist services

Keeping your mouth healthy is our primary goal at The Smile Rooms Dental & Implant Clinic. Research has shown links between gum disease and general health issues such as chronic heart disease and diabetes. Regular hygiene care can help you to achieve healthy teeth and gums, with proven health benefits.

Our team of dedicated Hygienists offer a full range of treatments to improve and maintain the health of your gums and help achieve a bright shiny smile.

Why do I need to see a dental hygienist?

Regular visits to your hygienist puts you in the best position for detecting any oral health problems before they become symptomatic or require treatment.  

Hygienists are trained to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. Even the best electric toothbrush can’t reach every part of your mouth, and a hygienist can get to those hard-to-reach places to provide a professional deep clean. While you will leave your hygienist appointment with a fresher, cleaner smile, their job goes far beyond the superficial. A scale and polish will remove harmful plaque and deposits of tartar that, if left, can cause periodontal (gum) disease. By making a hygienist visit part of your dental care regime you can stay one step ahead and avoid becoming one of the 19 out of every 20 people who will suffer from gum disease during their life.

What hygiene treatments do you offer?

Classic Hygiene Appointment

This is our Routine Hygiene appointment, offering a thorough scale and polish and tailored home hygiene routine advice. Perfect for maintaining healthy gums, it's the regular treatment to help maintain sweet breath and a dazzling smile.

Extensive Hygiene Appointment

If you have not seen a dentist for a while, then this is the treatment for you, alternatively you may have a little problem area which requires some intensive treatment.

Full Mouth Detox

For those diagnosed with ACTIVE gum disease we recommend 6 visits of intensive periodontal care (35 minutes each).

This includes an initial detailed assessment of your gums, followed by intensive periodontal therapy with local anaesthesia (if required), working on different areas of your mouth each appointment. Plaque and tartar above and below the gum line is removed. Appointments are usually within the space of just a few weeks (they can be condensed into fewer, but longer, sessions) and followed by a review 3 months later.

NB Success of treatment is highly dependent on excellent home care. Re-treatment of un-responsive areas may be required and Maintenance care appointments are always recommended.

Teeth Cleaning Treatments

Quick Smile

If you are short of time, in just 15 minutes we can make your teeth feel and look cleaner. This treatment is not as thorough as The Classic, but sometimes you don't have time to spend on yourself. It takes just 15 minutes, meaning you can easily get your teeth clean in a break from work or even when you have a busy day of meetings or shopping.

Diamond Shine

Our air polishing system gently removes all stains, leaving your teeth smooth and shiny. If you would simply like the stain removing from your teeth, you can book in for this gentle freshen up at any time. You do not even need to see your dentist first.

Smoker's Makeover

Smoking yellows teeth and the tar in cigarettes can leave deep stains. Our Smoker's Makeover uses ultrasonic cleaning and air polishing to banish stains and freshen your smile.

The Smile Rooms friendly hygienists can advise you on the best possible care for your mouth in a relaxed and non-judgemental manner. We also offer all patients who have a Smoker's Makeover 10% off our Home teeth whitening system.

Complete oral care

Prevention is better than cure, and identifying early signs of tooth decay or gum inflammation enables your practitioner to address the problem swiftly.

As well as a thorough scale and polish, your dental hygienist will also provide a complete check of your overall oral health. Your  The Smile Rooms Dental & Implant Clinic hygienist will get to know you and provide you with tailored, individual advice on how to maintain the best oral health, from diet to dental care.
