What happens in a Dental Hygienist appointment?

The Dental Hygienist will:

  • Check the patient’s medical history and ask the patient if they have any dental problems.
  • Discuss oral health, for example the treatment and prevention of gum (periodontal) disease, receding gums, tooth wear.
  • Give oral hygiene advice, for example tooth brushing technique.
  • Check the appearance of the gums, see if there is any plaque or bleeding.
  • Remove any hard deposits (calculus) and stain by scaling the teeth.
  • Polish the teeth.
