Why do I need to see a hygienist?

Oral hygienists are trained in preventative oral care, with their focus on ensuring you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. In the United Kingdom the number one cause of tooth loss in adults is gum disease. Gum disease can be exacerbated by many factors, but the primary cause is the presence of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is made up of bacteria which stick to the teeth and irritate the gums. It is essential this bacterium is removed for a healthy smile. A hygienist will remove the plaque build-up for you and help you to continue a good oral hygiene routine at home by recommending different toothbrushes and interdental cleaning products.
