Oral Hygiene Clinic

  • We encourage regular appointments for optimum oral care.

Define Clinic are dedicated to the oral hygiene of our patients, and encourage regular appointments for optimum oral care. For healthy teeth, comfortable gums, and fresh breath, routine treatment with our dental hygienists are vital to achieve your perfect smile.

It is now widely recognised that the presence of gum disease (periodontitis) is closely linked to the onset and worsening of other serious systemic diseases, such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s and premature births. The ‘holisitic’ approach to health starts with excellent oral care and oral health. Gum disease is often associated with bleeding from the gums but sometimes there are no obvious signs until it is too late to reverse the damaging effects to the bone holding your teeth in. So a long life of health and youthful appearance begins with the care of your teeth and gums.

The beauty of your smile also begins with regular and excellent dental hygiene treatments. A beautiful smile always begins with thorough cleaning and polishing, and then long term maintenance. We offer a range of treatments from a powder based ‘jet’ polish to refresh your smile right to deep cleaning procedures to protect and improve health under the gums. Regular maintenance visits, like regular visits to the hairdresser or for a manicure should be part of your health and beauty regime and we recommend 3 to 4 visits every year from the age of 16 onwards.

At your visit to Define Clinic’s dental hygienists, you will be shown how to properly care for your teeth (and any alignment systems you may have) to prevent poor technique and give your teeth the longevity they deserve. Having your hygiene technique assessed will provide the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health, and our hygienists will be able to offer you advice to educate you on achieving a complete and thorough clean at home.

Aligning and correcting crooked teeth with orthodontics is a great way to improve the health of your teeth and gums, but your oral maintenance becomes ever more important when undergoing treatment. Learning how to properly clean and care for your orthodontic system will make sure your treatment is especially effective, and reduce the risk of infections or hidden damage to your teeth. Our dental hygienists can make sure you’re completely confident and equipped to care for your braces out of our clinic.

A visit to the dental hygienist isn’t just an education in lifelong oral hygiene. Our hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth and fixed appliances, to remove scale deposits, plaque, and any staining that might have occurred. We will also screen your teeth and gums for early signs of gum disease or tooth decay, that can prevent future dental repairs and painful infections. Regular visits to Define Clinic for oral hygiene appointments will provide confidence in gaining healthy, fresh breath, and promote healthy teeth and gums that look and feel fantastic.

Frequently asked questions

A comprehensive cleaning and descaling of your teeth and gums should be from 45 to 60 minutes in duration. A “quick clean” of 10 to 15 minutes is simply not enough time to thoroughly clean, remove stains and remove the place and tartar that are responsible for gum disease. Studies show that more than 50% of the UK population have signs of gum disease and this can affect your whole body health. At Define we believe in excellence and in not compromising on your health, beauty and well being.
It is widely recognised that at least 2 visits of 45 minutes or more to a quality dental hygienist is necessary for oral health and maintaining a beautiful smile. Many patients should be seeing a hygienist 3 to 4 times per year, especially to maintain and ensure a beautiful white smile for life. An simple investment like this in your smile and oral health pays huge rewards long term.
Regular visits to a dental hygienist or therapist are essential for both a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile. It is also important to regularly ensure that you are effectively taking care of your teeth at home. So the educational aspects of seeing a hygienist are invaluable as well as the cleaning and polishing itself. It is amazing how many of us cannot effectively clean our teeth and a refresher course of our techniques can be done at each hygiene visit.
Yes, in fact maybe even more so, as the treatment and education from the hygienist are crucial for the prevention of most dental diseases. The hygienist can also be your early warning system and help to spot things like oral cancer, tooth decay and the effects of gum recession and tooth wear. Most modern dental practices rely on the hygienist to advise you if it’s important to see the dentist urgently. Dental Therapists are trained to perform a dental exam just like a dentist and they are often used in modern dental practices to carry out your ‘check-ups’ as well as your maintenance cleaning and polishing.
Appointments with the hygienist at Define Clinic in Beaconsfield start from £100.
