Dental Hygienist Reviewed by frank on "Wonderful experience at Harrow Dental Practice. Visited Lisa Inwood for a hygienist appointment today.
Best visit ever! She was extremely professional and very kind as I am a very nervous patient. Lisa took her time and constantly checked on me as she carried out a much needed clean. Thank you very much Lisa. Regards Robin."

Dental Hygienist Reviewed by Kevin Watkinson on "Had an appointment with Lisa today. I can only say what a lovely kind understanding sympathetic lady. You must be proud to have her as part of your team.; It was the best Hygienist appointment that I have ever had having previously had appointments with other people.

Lisa was able to advise me on technics that were helpful to me and made me feel at ease. It seems strange to say but I look forward to the next appointment."

Dental Hygienist Reviewed by Fiona McLoughlin on "My friend recommended and she was not wrong. Lisa was lovely, welcoming and gave excellent advise. Lisa explained where i was with my status, what I could do better and demonstrated better brushing techniques. I noticed that the Principal Dentist also followed same covid rules as patients.

They seem to have this pandemic patient safety process down to a fine art. I did notice that they appear to be keeping up with current/latest dentistry methods and offer a good range of services for all.

Would highly recommend."

With Airflow cleaning technology you can get even better results without any discomfort or need for special brushes or other cleaning tools. Proper oral hygiene is key to keeping your mouth healthy and feeling great!

What is gum disease?

Poor oral hygiene and failure to visit a dental hygienists regularly can result in developing gum disease. This is when bacteria in the mouth settles in pockets around the tooth just above the gum line.

Once it hardens into plaque it becomes difficult to remove. If the plaque is not removed the disease (Gingivitis) will steadily worsen developing into a more serious form of gum disease called Periodontitis.

This can result in the loss of a tooth. Read more about gum disease (Gingivitis) here.

How do I prevent bad breath?

This is known as halitosis and our dental hygienists can advise patients how to prevent bad breath and explain how and why bad breath occurs.

By flossing your teeth at least once a day and tooth brushing at least twice a day will help to remove the build up of food deposits in between your teeth and achieve fresh breath.

Scale and polish explained

Scale and polish treatment is a quick and easy procedure that your dental hygienist can do to improve the health of your teeth and gums.

It involves:

1) using special tools to scrape away any plaque or tartar buildup

2) polishing the teeth with a special powder to make them smooth and give them a brighter appearance.

The scale and polish treatment is a key part of keeping your mouth healthy.

As part of a good routine, we recommend our patients visit our dental hygienists at least every six months for a scale and polish. We will also check your general oral hygiene to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Our dental hygienists are trained and qualified to spot any problems and to provide the best treatment and advice.
