At Implant & Ceramic Dental Studios, we have a whole team of people standing by to help you with your oral health needs at the dentist in Gloucester. We offer a range of dental treatments with the support of our highly trained professionals.
One of the people you might see on a regular basis is our hygienist. They have an important role to play in preventing dental issues and keeping your teeth bright and healthy.
The best approach to your oral health is a preventive strategy. The hygienist at the dentist in Gloucester can help you with this in a number of different ways. Even if you have a diligent hygiene routine, it’s easy for tartar to build up on your teeth. This increases your risk of gum disease and tooth loss. Once plaque has hardened into tartar, it cannot be removed by brushing alone and that’s where the hygienist comes in. They use various traditional and advanced techniques to ensure that you walk away from the dentist in Gloucester with smooth and polished teeth.
Hygienists are also a mine of information on dental self-care techniques. They ensure that you have the tools and the know-how to maintain the clear environment that they create with their scale and shine process.
How will you feel after a visit the hygienist?
Many people find themselves hyper-aware of the area on the backs of their teeth for a few days. This is because the removal of plaque has changed the shape of the backs of your teeth, so the tongue senses an unfamiliar shaped environment for a little while afterwards. Once you acclimatise to the smooth feel, this new awareness will fade into the background again. In the meantime, it serves as a reminder of how clean your teeth are.
Once you have visited the hygienist, you can relax for a little while knowing that you have ticked an important item off your ‘to-do’ list. As long as you adhere to the oral hygiene guidelines offered by your hygienist, you should be able to maintain a healthy environment in the mouth in between visits. We recommend an appointment for a spruce up every three to six months.
