Dental Hygienist Bristol

Improve your oral health care, book a session with our dental hygienists

Are you worried about your oral health care? At The Bristol Dental Practice , we have 5 fully qualified dental therapists and hygienists available to offer advice, screen for gum disease and help support your oral health.
Hygiene sessions are available, lasting 30 minutes and costing £70.00. Our hygienists use the latest air polishers to help keep your breath fresh and smile bright. They can help improve your own home care and maximise your oral health, reducing your future dental care needs.

Cleaning Session Using Air Polishing Technology

Your session will take 30-minutes and our hygienist uses the latest air-polishing technology to remove stubborn stains quickly and gently. We will examine your teeth and gums and advise about the presence of disease or other dental concerns. We discuss your health and your goals in relation to preventive dental care and establishing a practical, comfortable daily mouth care routine.

Oral Hygiene Strategies

We want you to maintain excellent oral health and this includes offering advice on tooth brushing techniques, flossing and nutritional counselling. There are always new home care dental products entering the market and your hygienist will support your understanding of this new information.

Gum disease (periodontitis)

Gum disease is now recognised as being the sixth most prevalent disease of mankind. Many people are not aware of problems, but common complaints are bleeding or sore gums, bad taste or loose teeth. Treatment for gum disease is reliant on your dedicated home care. Our hygienists will review your risk factors and provide individual support sensitive to your overall well being. ‘The sound of periodontitis’ produced by The British Society of Periodontology is a short film detailing three people describing their symptoms and experience of gum disease and treatment.
