Dental Hygienist in Chelmsford, Essex
We pride ourselves in our thorough hygienist treatments. Dental health is very important and therefore we guarantee a perfect clean.
One of our most important missions at Aloe Vera Dental Studio in Chelmsford is to promote preventive dental treatments such as seeing the Dental Hygienist regularly. These visits are essential in keeping the mouth and the teeth healthy. Unfortunately 84% Of people aged 25 and over have Gum Disease and it remains the main cause of tooth loss in adults.
Gum disease (inflammation of the gums) is caused by sticky plaque and when not removed by effective brushing and flossing, will harden and become tartar(similar to the inside of a kettle if not descaled). This cannot be removed by brushing at home and causes inflammation of the surrounding tissues. In advanced stages leads to periodontal disease and loss of the teeth.
What to expect
At Aloe Vera Dental Studio in Chelmsford our experienced Dental Hygienists can help prevent this by careful removal of the tartar on the teeth. They can tailor an individual programme for you to maintain optimum gum health and also prevent bad breath that is often associated with gum disease. A dental hygienist will usually use the ultrasonic scalers and hand scalers to remove the calculus and in the end they will polish your teeth with to make them white and beautiful. * COVID UPDATE * Currently our hygienists are unable to offer Ultrasonic scaling to every patient, in line with the COVID guidelines. The hygienists will instead, use a handscaler. This will still have the same effect, it’s just a little extra work for the hygienist. As soon as these COVID guidelines are removed, we will be offering ultrasonic scaling to every patient, if they would like it.
More recently gum disease has been linked to other diseases in the body such as heart disease, diabetes, strokes and arthritis. So it is important to see the hygienist regulary & Our Dental Hygienist advise at least every six months.
