It’s a dental hygiene appointment, with approximately half of all dental appointments booked by adults being dental hygienists appointments. This is great because a hygienist appointment is arguably one of the most important. It can help prevent periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, gum infection or even the need for fillings due to tooth decay. We even have a National Dental Hygiene Month in March!
A hygienist can do more effective interdental cleaning than flossing teeth alone or even using interdental brushing using specialised brushes. This is because they have tools that allow them to safely clean around the gum line, between the teeth or even under the gumline! Oral hygiene is extremely important, although brushing and flossing daily is a great practice often we need some additional help from a hygienist.
No, absolutely not! There is no shame in being recommended for a hygienist appointment, it’s a great way to ensure you’re preventing tooth decay and the need for fillings or further dental work. A simple hygienist appointment also helps you to feel fresh, because whilst flossing teeth and brushing is fantastic it will never be as effective as professional cleaning. Plus some stubborn plaque can build up in small amounts over time even with all the best will in the world!
Absolutely, if you’re with an NHS dentist you can visit their hygienist for an appointment. The cost of this is £23.80 and is referred to as a ‘scale and polish ’. If you wish to book a private appointment with Dental Concepts the charge for a hygiene appointment is £75.
