Dental Hygiene Services

Strong and healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a great smile.

Using the latest dental techniques and equipment, our hygienists offer a range of dental hygiene services to protect your mouth and ensure a healthy, radiant smile. Our hygiene services are intended to prevent and treat dental health problems. Our Oral health Educators also provide advice about healthy eating, giving up smoking, brushing techniques and oral hygiene products and teeth sealants.

In addition to looking after your oral hygiene, our hygienists can also help you to achieve a great looking smile using teeth whitening.

Your Hygienist Visit

The hygienist will examine your gums for any early signs of gum disease or gum recession, check that your tooth enamel is healthy and locate any areas of tarter and plaque build-up. The hygienist will then give your teeth a professional scale and polish, removing tarter and plaque, especially from those areas it’s not always easy to reach or see. When completed, this not only makes your teeth feel nice and smooth, it helps to remove any stains and reduces the build-up of bacteria.

Our Hygienists may use air polishers as part of your dental cleaning experience. It's like giving your teeth a gentle jet wash, effectively tackling stubborn stains while polishing them at the same time. The "jetflow" we use is a mix of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate.

The benefits of air polishers:

  • Efficient Cleaning: They help to remove plaque, stains, and biofilm effectively, ensuring your teeth get a thorough cleaning.
  • Gentle on Your Teeth: Air polishers are gentle on your gums and enamel, making your cleaning experience more comfortable and pleasant.
  • Versatile: We can use air polishers on different parts of your mouth, including natural teeth, dental restorations, and orthodontic braces, ensuring every surface gets cleaned well.
  • Safety First: Air polishers help us reduce the production of aerosols, which is important for keeping our dental environment safe and hygienic.

The use of the airflow polisher is not suitable for everyone, and cleaning can always be carried out manually.

Positive: Patient, Caring

Having come to Dr Hussain after a very bad experience elsewhere, I was very nervous at the beginning. I was recommended by a friend, who has been going to him for years, and that was the initial reason for choosing Dr Hussain. Having been there now for just over a year, I would not consider going anywhere else. He is very patient, caring and thorough in even the most complex case. A huge thank you.
