Hygienist at Evolve

Why should I see a hygienist?

When should I see a hygienist?

It’s recommended that you see a hygienist at least every 6 months, for some patients we recommend an appointment more regularly.

Why should I see a hygienist?

A hygienist will ensure that your gums are in the best condition they can be, by assessing your oral health, carrying out a deep clean, and providing you with tips to maintain your oral health at home.

What does a hygienist do?

Whilst our dentists assess the overall health of your teeth and carries out any treatment you may require, they don’t professionally clean your teeth. Your hygienist will professionally clean your teeth, paying careful attention to any tartar and plaque that may have built up. This will prevent issues such as gum disease developing. Your teeth will look brighter and whiter after your appointment.

Hygienists can also give you oral hygiene tips to help ensure that your at home routine is as good as it possibly can be.

Can a hygienist remove stains?

Over time, our teeth build up plaque. A visit to the hygienist for a deep clean to remove surface stains, making your teeth feel fresher and brighter.

Should everyone see a hygienist?

Yes. Seeing the hygienist is an important part of your dental health, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy. They can also help with dietary advise and helping you to stop smoking.

Can a hygienist whiten teeth?

Tooth whitening has to be carried out by a clinician that is registered with the General Dental Council. A Hygienist can administer whitening gel on the prescription of a dentist. At Evolve, we offer a whitening package that includes customised whitening trays, an appointment with the hygienist to make sure your teeth are as clean as they can be and your whitening gel. You initially wear your whitening trays at home overnight for 3-4 nights to start your whitening, then for an hour a day for a further 10 days. At any point you can stop if you are happy with the shade that you achieve sooner that the full two weeks, you are in control. Read our CQC Report here.
