Why You Should Visit The Hygienist
We get it – not everyone likes going to the dentist. But unfortunately, it’s so important to the health and appearance of your smile to attend regular dental check-ups. Here’s why your dental hygienist is a key part of your oral care.
1. They give you a professional clean
Even the most well-intentioned brush doesn’t reach every area of your smile – and the oral care products you use may not be as powerful as the ones in the dental hygienist’s chair. When you attend a check-up at the dentists, you’ll have a deep clean to get your smile sparkling and remove plaque, calculus and bacteria from your mouth, teeth and gums.
2. They give you expert advice
You might not know how often to brush, how to actually do it, and which products to use to get the best out of your smile. Thankfully, your dental hygienist can help with all three of these things. We’ve really seen it all here at our Farringdon dental practice, so there’s no need to feel anxious or ashamed about your smile. Our dental hygienists will advise you on how to take care of it, totally judgement-free.
3. They spot problems early
Whether it’s gum disease or oral cancer, our expert dental hygienists know a thing or two about your smile – and what problems can occur through diet, lax oral hygiene and other factors. Attending regular check-ups with our Farringdon team means we can keep an eye on the condition of your mouth, teeth and gums and spot warning signs early, which could lead to better treatment outcomes.
4. They can carry out additional treatments
Sometimes, a dental hygienist can carry out other duties – whether it’s X-rays on your smile or a professional teeth whitening treatment. Whatever the case, you’ll get a fantastic level of commitment and care and can feel happy and confident that you’re in safe hands.
5. They look after your oral health
Here at Zero:Seven, we treat every single one of our patients like they’re our own family. We’re open and honest about your treatment options, will never recommend a procedure you don’t need and won’t judge the condition of your oral health – instead, helping you care for it for the future.
