Dental hygienist services in Haslemere

The primary mission of your local Haslemere hygienist is to avert and address gum illness, which has emerged as one of the leading triggers for adult tooth loss. By including regular professional teeth cleaning in your oral routine, you can help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay as well as many other avoidable mouth and gum issues.

Your local Haslemere hygienist is here to provide a comprehensive range of services, including deep cleaning and root canal treatments, as well as regular teeth cleanings. Not only will they remove plaque and tartar build-up that can be difficult for you to reach with a toothbrush on your own, but they can also assess your gums for signs of periodontal issues and provide you with advice on how to keep your mouth healthy.

Additionally, if you are considering a dental implant procedure, a hygienist can also provide additional care and services such as pre-procedure cleanings, post-op checkups, and regular maintenance appointments.

At Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of dental care and services. Our team of experienced hygienists is here to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment for your oral health needs.

Why do I need to see a dental hygienist?

Taking regular trips to the hygienist is your best bet in identifying any existing oral health issues before they become troublesome or need treatment. At Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre our hygienists are trained to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums.

Even the most advanced electric toothbrush can’t access all of those hard-to-reach areas in your mouth; only a professional hygienist has the expertise and tools to provide a comprehensive deep clean. After your appointment with a fully qualified Haslemere dental hygienist, you will leave with a fresher, cleaner smile but their job goes far beyond that.

If left untreated, plaque and tartar buildup can lead to periodontal disease. Fortunately, a scale and polish treatment safely eliminates this harmful accumulation of bacteria, keeping your smile healthy! Did you know 19 out of 20 people will experience gum disease in their lifetime, this is mainly down to lack of dental hygiene beyond the basic level.

What can I expect from a hygienist appointment?

When you schedule an appointment with your local hygienist, they will first assess the oral health of your teeth and follow up by providing a thorough scaling procedure. To ensure that your teeth are as healthy and clean as possible, here at our clinic we use scalers and curettes—specialized tools designed to carefully scrape away any buildup of plaque or tartar around the gum line. This gentle process removes impurities from the surface of the teeth with precision.

Through the use of hand-held mirrors, your hygienist will be able to detect any missed areas and measure plaque buildup. After completing a deep clean and full evaluation of oral health, they will then work to give your teeth an attractive lustre by utilising a quiet air polisher that efficiently erases superficial stains. In cases where decay is present, fluoride or antibacterial gel may be applied in order to preserve mouth hygiene.

Tackling tooth fissures

Tooth fissures are small and shallow crevices located on the surface of teeth, predominantly found on premolars and molars – a common dental feature. With regular brushing, it is easy to miss these fine crevices where bacteria can multiply and erode your teeth. A fissure sealant is a fast and simple way to keep cavities away, as your hygienist can easily apply it to protect your teeth. We will advise whether this is necessary, and we would never recommend something you didnt need.

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. After all no one wants to have a tooth removed or a root canal treatment so act now before it gets to that stage. Get in touch with Stricklands Dental Fitness Centre today!
