Why is it important to see a hygienist?

Regular visits to a hygienist are vital for maintaining optimal oral health. Hygienists play a crucial role in preventative dental care by conducting thorough cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and stains that regular brushing may miss. These appointments prevent tooth decay and gum disease, whilst also allowing for the early detection of potential issues, resulting in less invasive treatments.

How often should I see a hygienist?

The recommended frequency of hygiene treatment is determined through a personalised dental examination. Generally, individuals who maintain meticulous care in cleaning their teeth and gums may need less frequent visits to the hygienist however, for most people, a beneficial routine involves scheduling a hygienist treatment every six months. Your dentist will guide you in establishing an optimal schedule tailored to your unique oral care needs.

Do I need to see a dentist before a hygienist appointment?

In some cases, patients may have the option of scheduling a direct access appointment with a dental hygienist without first seeing a dentist. Direct access allows patients to receive preventive care and professional teeth cleaning directly from the hygienist, often without an examination by the dentist. If you’re unsure, give our team a call.
