Hygienist FAQs

Why do I need my teeth cleaned by a hygienist?

It’s common to get build ups of calculus (tartar) around your teeth which you will not be able to remove at home. This build up can lead to gum disease. A hygienist can clean this off with special instruments and give you advice on how to decrease the rate of this build up. However well you clean your teeth a regular hygienist appointment is important – even dentists have them!

Is using mouthwash as good as brushing your teeth?

No! Brushing your teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste will manually remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth to reduce the chances of dental decay and gum disease. Mouthwash does not do this!

A fluoride containing mouthwash can benefit you if used after a meal because it gives you an application of fluoride and neutralises the acids caused from bacteria and food. You shouldn’t rinse your mouth with water or mouth rinse after brushing your teeth as you are just rinsing off the high fluoride amount in toothpaste which has a topical benefit.

Is Fluoride good for your teeth?

Fluoride is quite valuable in dental hygiene. It resists acidity, thus preventing tooth decay and cavities. It further maintains the health of your enamel and teeth by cleaning out the bacteria that cause problems. Fluoride can be found in your regular toothpaste, mouthwashes, and tap water supplies. In many nations, it is typical to add fluoride to public water systems to target the particular point of decreasing tooth decay.

Constant fluoride exposure leads to a healthier mouth by renewing weakened tooth enamel and correcting early tooth decay symptoms. Conversely, it should be noted that the excessive use of fluoride products can be the underlying cause of dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is a condition characterized by discolouration or mottling of the teeth.

What stains my teeth?

Tooth staining can result from various factors, including:

  • Food and Beverages: The pigments in dark foods and drinks, known as chromogens, can bind to the enamel, leading to staining. This is particularly true for coffee, tea, red wine, soy sauce, and turmeric. Being mindful of these coloured molecules in your diet can help prevent teeth discolouration.
  • Tobacco Products: Smoking or using other tobacco products can cause teeth discolouration that is anything from slight to highly noticeable, if not damaging. The tobacco produced contains tar and nicotine that attach to teeth surfaces, making removing them difficult.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Neglecting to brush and floss your teeth regularly can lead to the accumulation of plaque and tartar. These can cause the formation of stained teeth spots and discolouration. This highlights the crucial role of proper oral hygiene in preventing tooth discolouration.
  • Age: With age increase, our tooth enamel wears off naturally, and the juicier, yellowish-coloured dentin directly under that is exposed thus. This can be why teeth loss is the ultimate problem of shiny and more yellow teeth.
  • Medications: Certain drugs, for example, tetracycline antibiotics, antihistamines, and antipsychotics, as medication side effects, are found to cause tooth discolouration with a tendency to occur during tooth development during childhood.
  • Genetics: Some can have a naturally very dark or more yellowish enamel because of their genes, and that is what makes them prone to diminishing the white of their teeth.

What is the difference between a dentist and a hygienist?

The difference between a dentist and a dental hygienist is principally related to the job roles and their subject matter expertise. Although a hygienist focuses on cleaning, scaling, and polishing teeth, a dentist has a holistic range of skills in fully restoring teeth and gums. While both are duly certified and registered professionals in dentistry, their specialisations are different.

What is the duration of a dental hygienist appointment?

Typically, a new patient session lasts approximately 60 minutes, while subsequent appointments range from 30 to 45 minutes, contingent upon the patient’s oral health condition.
