A dental hygienist treatment includes a thorough and professional cleaning of gums and teeth.
Dental hygiene forms a vital part of preventative ethos at Coulsdon Dental Clinic– and it’s not merely about brushing your teeth twice a day. A Dental Hygienist helps to prevent not only tooth decay, but also identifies signs of early gum disease and cures bad breath (halitosis). We firmly believe that good dental hygiene is the stepping stone for overall health and well-being.
An appointment with our Dental Hygienist is 30 minutes long and includes :
Removal of plaque or calculus that has hardened over time using ultrasonic scalers
Bad breath treatment
Oral cancer screening, including early detection of tooth decay and identifying signs of gum disease
Removal of any surface staining caused by smoking or consuming tea and coffee
A thorough cleaning of gums to ensure the gums stay healthy and avoid tooth loss
Oral Health instructions that are bespoke to you and your eating habits

Does a deep-clean of my teeth hurt?
Can a Dental Hygienist remove tooth stains or whiten my teeth?
Our Hygienists are trained and have special tools to remove surface staining, however for deep and stubborn staining, we recommend laser teeth whitening.
