Hygiene Treatments

How our Hygienist Can Help

To keep your teeth looking beautiful, white, and clean, it’s essential to look after them. This means taking care of them at home and also making regular hygiene appointments at your dental surgery.

If you want to be able to show off your smile with pride, you’ll need to make sure you give your teeth a little TLC from time to time.

No matter how well you take care of your teeth, our dental hygiene specialists can provide you with a little more protection. With a full range of quick and painless treatments, it’s never been easier to guard against long-lasting damage.

It’s easy to forget about hygiene appointments but they’re just as important as regular checks with your dentist. A good hygienist can help to ward off any early attack on your teeth and gums as well as helping your teeth to stay looking their best.

Some of the problems that a dental hygienist can help with include:

Stained teeth
Plaque build-up
Descaling and polishing
Check up of your tooth and gum health
Demonstration of correct hygiene techniques
General dental care advice
Failing to tackle plaque build-up quickly can lead to teeth cavities and gum inflammation. Our dental hygienist can help to spot the early signs and eliminate the problem, leaving your teeth sparkling with good health.

Book an Appointment

If your teeth are healthy, you will probably see the hygienist more frequently than your dentist! It’s recommended to book a hygiene appointment at least once every six months, or sooner if you’re a smoker or have signs of plaque build-up.

All of the dental hygienists at Tooth Club are registered with the General Dental Council and fully qualified. You can trust us with the health of your teeth, and to help you look your best.

A: the precise amount of time you’ll need depends on the condition of your teeth. As a general rule, you should allow one hour for your first appointment and 30-45 minutes for any subsequent appointments.

A: No. If your teeth need to be polished or descaled, your dentist may refer you to the hygienist. However, you can still book an appointment with the hygienist whenever you feel you need to without diverting through the dentist first.
