A dental hygiene appointment at our dentist in West Byfleet
Many of our patients may be very much aware of the importance of dental hygiene, however they may not know what to expect from a dental hygiene appointment. Although it is important to remember that each individual dental case does vary greatly (depending on many factors), we recommend a variety of standard procedures. During a standard appointment, our professionals will first assess your mouth, teeth, and gums, as well as administer a scale and polish (a rigorous cleaning treatment), and highlight any dental risk factors which may have to be investigated further.
The role of our hygienist is to educate our patients on the best possible dental cleaning routine for them personally. Patients who have dentures, bridges, or even single crowns may need a different cleaning routine to a patient who has all their natural teeth for example. Aside from dental education however, we also attempt to prevent the development of build-up on the surface of the teeth.
