Dental Hygienist Nottingham | Sherwood Dental Care

Care from root to top with our hygienists

Healthy teeth, happy smile – that’s what we aim for here at Sherwood Dental Care in Nottingham. Part of having healthy teeth is ensuring you book in for regular dental check-ups, but there are times when you can see a hygienist rather than a dentist.

A hygienist is specially trained in looking after the health of mouth, teeth and gums. They can also give you tips and tricks to improve your brushing technique, and can advise you on the best products to try for your unique smile.

Why visit the hygienist?

We’ve been providing high-quality dental care to patients in and around Nottingham for over 30 years. Our dental hygienists are a key part of our team and can help improve your oral health. Here are a few benefits to booking in with your hygienist:

  1. Receive a thorough scale and polish
  2. Get advice on dental products and technique
  3. Enjoy cleaner teeth and a brighter smile
  4. Help improve oral health
  5. Help prevent tooth decay and gum disease

What happens during treatment?

Your dental hygienist will help thoroughly clean your mouth, teeth and gums – known as a scale and polish. They have a focus on preventative dental health, which is why working with you on your cleaning technique is so important. They may even be able to give advice on changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle (for example, stopping smoking) that can make a positive impact on your oral health.

    Everything you need to know about our hygienist

    • As well their main duties, your hygienist can help carry out some other works, such as taking X-rays, applying sealants and varnishes, and performing teeth whitening.

    • It’s an essential step in taking proper care of your oral health. Even the most thorough cleaning at home can miss spots between the teeth. Also, a hygienist is trained to detect those early signs of gum disease and tooth decay.

    • Absolutely. Part of the reason hygienists remove plaque and tartar from your teeth is because they are two factors that can lead to gum disease.

    • Treatment costs vary from person to person and the amount of work that’s required. We offer treatment both privately and on the NHS here at Sherwood Dental Care, and can offer 0% finance on more expensive treatments to our private patients.
