Keep your natural teeth as healthy as possible

Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygienist in Eltham

AR Smiles is passionate about helping you keep your natural teeth as healthy as possible, for as long as possible. 

AR Smiles hygienists have a particular focus on preventing and treating gum disease. In addition, they have a wealth of expertise to help train you to help take care of your teeth and gums really well yourself. 

We have a strong ethos of prevention, and we believe this starts with healthy gums. Our dentists and hygienists work closely together to ensure that our patient’s teeth are stable and this starts with strong foundations – healthy gums.

Although tooth decay is something that is important to prevent, the gums can sometimes be overlooked when it comes to care and protection. That is where our exceptional dental hygienist service come in. 

For professional teeth cleaning, gum disease treatment and personal oral hygiene advice, our AR Smiles hygienists are here to help you. 

Oral Hygiene Advice

Dental hygienists have a huge amount of training, education and experience when it comes to oral hygiene. During your appointment, they will work hard to ensure you have the right tools, techniques and skills to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy between visits. 

They can also help you work around oral health hurdles such as dexterity challenges, medication or medical treatment side effects like dry mouth. 

Gum Disease Prevention

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK despite it being largely preventable and treatable in its early stages.

Our hygienists are highly trained in gum disease prevention. They use a combination of professional cleans and oral hygiene education to help you avoid gum disease. If gum disease is already present, the same dedicated programme can help to reverse it. 

If gum disease is more advanced, hygienist treatment alongside dental guidance and treatment from a specialist, can help stop it from progressing any further. 

Professional Cleaning

If you are looking to get cleaner, brighter teeth we can also help you with this. Often the first stage in aesthetic treatment is to book yourself in for stain removal and Air Flow polishing with one of our hygienists. It’s a wonderful polishing technique which is kind to your teeth and gums and often helpful to remove stains and in some cases whiten the teeth in a short period of time.

After a clean with our hygienist your breath will feel fresher, and your teeth will look their very best, for a quick and easy confidence boost!

What To Expect In Your Initial Hygienist Visit

  • A chat about how you currently clean your teeth
  • An assessment of your gum health
