Taking Care of Your Oral Health

Dental hygienists play an important part in our dental health care and are mainly concerned with preventative dental health and treating gum disease. The main part of their work is to treat and prevent gum disease, by assessing your teeth and gums and providing you with a thorough cleaning and a solution for any oral problems you might be experiencing.

Hygienists are specially trained to carry out scaling and polishing, removing plaque, calculus (hardened plaque) and stain – using special instruments to ensure that your teeth are thoroughly clean. They can also apply fluoride treatments and varnishes, to desensitise your teeth. We teach you how to look after your teeth and gums, and can give you advice about your diet, how to prevent tooth decay, tooth wear, and how to care for dentures and implants.

Your hygienist will give you dental care that is tailored to your needs, and work with you to ensure that your teeth are in the best condition possible.

What Happens When You Visit a Hygienist?

When you visit a hygienist they will perform an inspection of your mouth, and examine certain things such as; the tightness of the gums around the teeth, the way in which the gums may bleed, and the general appearance of the gums. Your hygienist can then explain any problems that you may have in detail with you. They will then remove any hard deposits, plaque, and stains using a mechanical ultrasonic device and manually with hand instruments.

Specialist stain removal techniques may also be used, and the teeth can be polished to leave a nice smooth feeling and brighter appearance of the teeth. Your hygienist will provide you with advice on how to best look after your teeth, and on how to solve any oral problems that you are facing. Our dental hygienist at FACEmed is Alysha Gupta, who has a Bsc (Hons) in Dental Hygiene and Therapy and also gained a Dental Nursing degree.
