Prevention and Treatment of Gum Disease on Colchester

Dental Hygienist Services

At The Smile Clinic, Colchester we aim to prevent and treat gum disease, which is now one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. We would like to help you to prevent gum disease and tooth loss by seeing one of our fantastic hygienists at our Essex based dental clinics.

Why do I need to see a dental hygienist?

Regular visits to our hygienist puts you in the best position for detecting any oral health problems before they become symptomatic or require lots of treatment. At The Smile Clinic our hygienists are trained to clean your teeth and keep your gums healthy. Even the best toothbrushes cannot reach every part of your mouth effectively. The hygienist will clean the areas you can’t to provide you with a professional deep clean, making your teeth feel and look great! A scale and polish removes harmful plaque and hard deposits of tartar that, if left can cause periodontal disease (Gum disease)

Why not book your hygienist visit alongside your next routine examination? If you are an NHS patient or private patient you are welcome to see our hygienist for a fresher, cleaner smile!

What can I expect from a hygienist appointment?

At our St Botolphs clinic in Colchester (Town centre) you will see our hygienist Jo, she is fantastic with nervous patients and will take her time to ensure you go away from the appointment understanding the importance of good oral hygiene and what to do at home to ensure you keep your teeth and gums healthy.

At Mill Road in Colchester (near to Colchester General Hospital) you will see either Kirstyn or Fiona. Both ladies are great at keeping your mouth healthy and advising you the best ways to brush and floss!

Complete oral care

Prevention is better than cure, and identifying early signs of tooth decay or gum inflammation enables your practitioner to address the problem swiftly.

As well as a thorough scale and polish, your dental hygienist will also provide a complete check of your overall oral health. The Smile Clinic hygienist’s will get to know you and provide you with tailored, individual advice on how to maintain the best oral health, from diet to dental care.
