A dental hygienist is an oral health expert who helps in the prevention and treatment of gum related dental diseases. The oral hygienists carry out their work under general supervision only from a licensed dentist. The hygienists play a vital role in dental teams and their workload plays a significant role when combined with the dentist and allow dentist to perform their advanced procedures. So, it is quite common for the hygienists to perform different preventive dental treatments in the office such as cleaning teeth, assessing patients for oral diseases and other preventative dental care needs. They also give proper education to patients on various ways to improve as well as maintain good oral health and hygiene.
One of the major differences between your dentist and the hygienist is the overall function of their own roles. You need to spend some time with your dentist when there is a problem which can be you require in depth for infection or there is a cavity that should be filled. On the other hand, a dental hygienist will help to maintain preventative care and prevent other significant issues. He is usually responsible for cleaning teeth during a dental appointment. The hygienists scrapes tartar and then plaque off from the teeth as well as polish them. He will also perform X-rays of gums and teeth by providing fluoride to patients and then use the sealants to your teeth for getting rid of cavities. The hygienist might be reviewing different ways to take proper care of teeth and overall dental health at home. He will give valuable tips on several ways to brush properly and floss daily as well as what foods you can eat and avoid for your strong and healthy mouth.

Your dental hygienist is likely to question you about your oral health before they look in your mouth. They will also screen for cancer by looking for any suspicious lesions in your mouth and will also examine the skin around the mouth for any abnormalities.
Next your hygienist they will evaluate any risk or evidence of periodontal disease by examining the skin around the gum line. They will also look for any decay and identify and evaluate any other dental problem that they see.
We offer our patients 3 levels of dental hygiene treatment:
This is polishing and scaling where any tartar or plaque will be removed often in one appointment although if the situation is more complex it may be in a set of appointments.
This level of dental hygiene involves treatment stain removal being carried out with Airflow. We find that the Airflow technique gives really excellent results and our clients are always pleased with how clean that teeth look after treatment with Airflow. This treatment is particularly good at removing stains from hard-to-reach places. Where patients have severe gingivitis, the hygienist treatment may be needed with deep scaling that can be conducted under a local anaesthetic.
If a patient has advanced periodontitis, our hygienist can apply periodontal therapy with laser that will be used in conjunction with other procedures to help patients with gum disease. If a patient does undergo a course of treatment for periodontitis, the hygienist will watch them carefully over the following three months to ensure that the improvement is maintained. If the patient has any persistent pockets or resistant sites of periodontitis we can apply a localised treatment that will resolve the problem.
The third level of our hygienist dental treatment is really aimed at an intervention where there is gum disease. We find that if these cases are managed carefully surgery can be avoided.
A scale and polish is a comprehensive tooth cleaning method carried out by a dental hygienist. The method usually has two steps.
Firstly, scraping is done to eliminate tartar and plaque from around your teeth. This is called scaling which can be done with a piece of electric equipment that oscillates at great speed. This instrument consists of a sharp tip which usually emits a jet of water which is perfect for removing calculus and plaque. Sometimes, the unwanted stains can be stubborn, and additional work and treatment may be needed. In this case, the hygienist uses manual instruments which enable them to access harder to reach areas. Some instruments just ‘do the job’ for specific areas of the mouth.
When the hygienist finds your teeth have been descaled to the best possible standard, your teeth will be polished. Your hygienist uses a rotating pad and good toothpaste for cleaning the teeth including those hard-to-reach areas which are really difficult to do when you clean them yourself This special polishing method further protects your teeth by giving a comprehensive clean.
Airflow therapy is a dental hygiene treatment which removes stains, plaque and discoloration with water, fine powder particles and compressed air. The three components can be combined in a high-powered jet that removes stains gently from your teeth including hard reaching areas and biofilm from below as well as above your gum line. Dental plaque is a biofilm of harmful bacteria which can grow on the surface within your mouth.
This innovative spray technology will be enable access to all hard-to-reach areas to remove damaging biofilm effectively which develops above and below the gum and will improve oral health. With airflow therapy, stains and build up are removed painlessly and prevented from becoming harmful for a period of about 90 days.
Seeing your dental hygienist can provide several benefits that will make you feel happy and healthy. Whether or not you want to visit a hygienist, healthy teeth are essential for your beautiful smile and the sense of improved confidence comes with it. Are you avoiding the dental hygienist’s chair for quite some time? Below are some reasons why you need to visit a dental hygienist from time to time:
You can treat gum disease when it is detected at early stages. When your gum disease develops into the later stages, it might lead to severe bleeding, bad breath, loss of teeth and painful gums. Your hygienist will be treating gum disease and give you proper knowledge of how to prevent it at home.
Bad breath, also known as halitosis, occurs due to an underlying dental problem. The odor usually occurs due to the formation of plague or bacteria around your teeth or under the gum line. If your bad breath had occurred due to the latter, then a dental hygienist can only solve the problem.
You might develop unwanted stain marks by using the teeth in due course. The external stains which are there on the teeth cannot be removed through brushing. These stains are found when you drink tea, red wine, coffee, tobacco and other colored foods or drinks. A dental hygienist can remove the stains to restore the color of your teeth.
Other than the scale and polish, your dental hygienist will detect for early signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer can be treated when detected early. He will give valuable advice on the risk factors of oral cancer and how to lessen them. You are at greater risk if you are a smoker, drink too much alcohol or have been infected with HPV virus.

Amazing experience as I am ever so scared of any dental treatment. They put me at ease and I would 100% come back again. My teeth feel very clean and have never looked so sparkly as they do now!
Great hygienist. Professional but friendly. I will definitely come here again.
Amazing hygienist, he is truly a professional, caring hygienist you can imagine. Highly recommended
I went here to see the hygienists for cleaning my teeth. It was a very pleasant experience, from the moment I came into when I left.
There will be the buildup of a sticky film of plague on the teeth all through the day. This consists of bacteria which can be turned into an acid and reacts with the sugar in our food. The plaque can be removed by brushing teeth two times in a daybut you would be able to clean hard-to-reach areas. When the plaque forms in due course, it gets hardened into a substance which is called tartar or calculus. Being a hard substance, it is difficult to remove through brushing and this is when the scale and polish method comes in.
It is advised to undergo a scale and polish treatment in every six months to avoid the formation of plaque on your teeth. Some people need to perform the treatment less often and so, you need to see your hygienist in six months so that he can tell whether you require a scale and polish. Some people like to have a scale and polish after undergoing an orthodontic procedure while others will have a scale and polish for getting their teeth and gums in proper shape before a dental implant treatment.
No, the scale and polish procedure won’t hurt, but you might feel unusual sensations within your mouth. This will include a tickling feeling or scraping sensation in the gums. You can use a numbing gel when you feel nervous about the dental pain. If you are extremely worried about the scale and polish to be painful, then you need to speak with the receptionist for booking your appointment and they will inform your dental hygienist about it.
The hygienist appointment for a new patient is usually between 30 to 60 minutes with subsequent appointments 45 or 30 mins, based on the dental health condition of the patient.
Each patient will be treated individually and so, your dental appointment includes several assessments which include – general and oral health, dental health diagnosis, suitable treatment plan and professional cleaning. Also, you will be given advice on homecare products, your diet, smoking cessation and screening for oral cancer.
The work of a dental hygienist is preventative. When they see a patient they will be evaluating that patient’s dental status and will be identifying and offering treatment for any early signs they see of gum disease. They will do this by expertly removing tartar and plaque that build-up on the teeth.
As well as giving advice to their patients on how to maintain good dental health, the hygienist will also talk about ensuring that their client know that they should eat a healthy diet. if a patient follows the advice of a dental hygienist they should be able to prevent developing tooth decay and will have a smile that is always healthy looking. Every patient who is seen at Dental Hygienist London will have any treatments and advice tailored precisely to their unique circumstances.
Like most things the amount that a hygienist earns in the UK will depend a lot on their experience but on average for a hygienist who works in a UK dental surgery the salary would be around £30 an hour. If a dental hygienists a Registered Dental Hygienist then they will have a greater chance of earning a higher hourly rate.
The qualification and training of a Registered Dental Hygienist should reassure you that you are having the best of treatments.
