Central to our focus on proactive and preventive dentistry here at Holly Dental Practice in Preston, we recommend dental hygiene appointments every three to six months with one of our friendly and professional hygienists.

Playing an important part in maintaining the health of teeth and gums, during your dental hygiene appointment, we will remove any harmful plaque and odour causing bacteria from behind your teeth. We will also polish the front of your teeth to remove any light stains for a sparkling clean smile, and you will be advised about brushing and flossing techniques so that you keep your smile in tip top condition whilst at home.

Frequently asked questions:

Can’t my dentist do oral hygiene checks?

Yes, our dentists are fully qualified in all aspects of oral hygiene. However, hygienists undertake particular training in this area, meaning they focus on ensuring plaque and tartar are removed from the teeth and from below the gum line, where most damage is caused.

What treatments can the hygienist offer?

The hygienist will carry out a scale and polish – a professional deep clean that removes disease-causing plaque and tartar from under and around the gum line. The hygienist is also qualified to advise you on the latest techniques and products for effective cleaning at home, as well as tips on diet, nutrition and lifestyle issues such as smoking and alcohol intake.

Can I do anything to prevent oral hygiene problems occurring?

Maintaining a rigorous cleaning programme at home is vital if you want to minimise hygienist appointments. Our hygienist will give you advice and tips not only about how to clean your teeth, but also about diet and general lifestyle.

How often should I see my hygienist?

If you have good oral health, we generally recommend seeing the hygienist twice a year. If you’ve had dental implants or tooth restorations, you may be required to visit more frequently to ensure plaque is being kept under control effectively around your prosthetic restorations.
