Hygiene Services

Kimbolton Dental Practice

At Woburn Sands Dental Practice we provide comprehensive hygienist services to aid in the prevention of gum disease and to promote excellent day-to-day oral hygiene habits.

Our skilled hygienist team offers patients individual advice on brushing, flossing and oral health habits for the best possible personal care regime. Appointments may also involve professional scale and polish services, gum disease prevention or management plans, and the effective prevention of dental decay.

In some instances our hygienist team may work alongside our dentists to provide a complete periodontal treatment and maintenance plan.

Preventing Gum Disease

Our hygienists train with a focus on preventing gum disease and working to effectively manage established gum disease. Our dentists may recommend you see the hygienist if you show signs of early gum disease, in which case it could be entirely treatable. The dentist may also recommend you see the hygienist for certain treatments as part of a longer-term periodontal treatment plan.

Daily Oral Hygiene Advice And Management

When you see the hygienist for oral hygiene advice and management they might recommend adjustments to your daily routine. They may recommend the use of a different type of toothbrush or toothpaste and they may recommend you start flossing too. A dental hygienist is also able to provide individual tips and guidance on smoking cessation and other lifestyle habits that may affect your oral health.

Professional Smile Cleaning

A professional scale and air polish is something the hygienist may do as part of a regular dental maintenance plan created for you. It works using a combination of jetted water, air and tiny particles to remove hard plaque build-ups and any dirt and surface stains on the teeth. You can also book in for a scale and polish as a standalone appointment before an important event like a party or wedding. It works as a great non-chemical alternative to teeth whitening, to brighten and whiten the smile, improving the health and appearance of your teeth and gums immediately.
