Hygienist – Hinckley

At our Hinckley practice we have a Dental Hygienist who can look after you during your treatment. Dental Hygienists are specially trained to work with our practitioners in giving care to patients, they play an important role in dental health care.

The Hygienists main role is to professionally clean the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. The most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep the teeth free from plaque. They also give advice on diet and preventing dental decay. The hygienist works with your practitioner to provide care tailored to your needs.

Hygienist visits are important, as regular cleaning combined with your home care will keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help keep your teeth sparkling and will give you fresh breath.

The cost of a 25 min scale and polish appointment is £40.

Our dental hygienist at Holywell aim to provide patients with a scale and polish and remove any deposits that collect around the teeth and gums and possibly around Orthodontic Appliances. They also provide help and advice for taking care of the mouth at home which is especially important during Orthodontic Treatment. Appointments are booked on a private basis following a referral from one of our practitioners.
