Regular visits to a hygienist help to preserve the health and beauty of your smile

How thorough is your oral hygiene routine?

Most of us are taught that brushing and flossing our teeth is the best way to maintain the health of our mouth and keep our teeth looking great and functioning perfectly. Nevertheless, many people don’t spend as long as they should taking care of their teeth. There are also plenty of hard-to-reach areas that can only be properly cleaned by a professional.

commonly asked questions about

Hygienist appointments in Ealing

  • Why do I need to see a hygienist if I clean my teeth properly?

    Even if you think you are doing an exceptional job with cleaning your teeth, it’s likely that you are missing some areas that you can’t see, such as the inside faces of the teeth. Any plaque that isn’t removed starts to harden into tartar. This is the darker yellow/brown staining that you can sometimes see on teeth. Tartar can’t be removed using a toothbrush or floss, and only professional tools can eliminate it and leave your teeth healthy and looking clean and attractive.

  • What tools will my IKON hygienist use to clean my teeth?

    Your hygienist will be focused on removing any plaque and tartar from your teeth. This is usually done using an ultrasonic scaler. This is a powered instrument that produces vibrations and a water jet to break them down and wash them away. They may also use hand instruments to remove stubborn areas, and a handheld polisher to remove stains and leave your teeth looking healthy and shiny. 

  • I’m ready to get started, what happens next?

    If you haven’t visited the hygienist in a while, or if you have never been for a hygienist visit before but you would like to start benefiting from superior cleanliness and oral health, call our Ealing, West London dental practice on 020 8997 2888 today or schedule your appointment using our online booking service.

I was referred to Dr Dobreci 6 months ago and found out that I had gum disease. The cleaning regime that he taught me and the treatment I have received has now stabilised the problem and the disease is held at bay.  Dr Dobreci’s style and approach have been enormously helpful and informative to me throughout.
