Hygiene is one of the most important things when it comes to looking after your mouth and teeth. A good oral hygiene habit can prevent unwanted visits to a dentist in Soho, and keep your teeth healthy and pain-free. At PS Dental Care, our hygienists can help keep your teeth healthy and looking good.
What is a hygienist?
Many people think the only reason to visit a dentist in Soho is for a check-up or emergency treatment. However, it is a good idea to keep up regular visits to a hygienist to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean. A hygienist is a dental health professional who will clean your teeth thoroughly, remove plaque, check for cavities and advise you on home oral hygiene.
What to expect from a visit to the hygienist
The hygienist plays an important role at a dentist in Soho, as the work they do helps to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. When you visit our hygienist, you can expect a very thorough clean of your teeth, also known as scaling and polishing. This is very different to when you brush your teeth at home – the hygienist will focus on removing plaque that builds up in the hard to reach nooks and crannies between your teeth, using special tools.
Our hygienist will also talk to you about your home oral hygiene habits as well as other things like diet and lifestyle choices, and how these can affect your oral health. They may give teeth cleaning demonstrations or advice on the best way to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
Look after your teeth at home
By making sure you have a good oral hygiene routine at home, you can cut down on the number of trips you make to a dentist in Soho. You may think that dentists want you to have problems with your teeth, but like any healthcare professional we want you to be as healthy as possible, and we believe preventive care is the best route when it comes to dentistry. Good oral hygiene, along with a good diet and regular check-ups with a dentist in Soho, are the best ways to keep your smile looking bright and healthy.
