Our amazing hygienists are an integral part of the Dublin18 team and we cannot stress the benefit of seeing a hygienist on a regular basis enough! If you’re eager to keep on top of oral health problems, prevent pain, welling and sensitivity ad keep your teeth looking beautiful bright and white, make sure you make regular hygiene sessions part of your plans.
The importance of hygienist visits
Dental hygienists play a very important role in the treatment of advanced gum disease, but they can also be hugely beneficial to patients who have good oral health and simply want to keep things that way. Hygienists are trained to provide oral hygiene treatments, which remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth and polish and clean your teeth to make them sparkle and shine. Cleaning treatments remove surface stains and provide a very deep clean, which helps to prevent decay and gum disease.
For younger patients, preventative treatments are highly recommended. Fluoride varnish and sealant treatments help to strengthen and protect the teeth and reduce the risk of cavities.
Hygiene sessions are particularly important for patients who have symptoms of oral health problems and existing conditions, such as gum disease. Our hygienists work in close contact with our dentists to provide first class standards of care and ensure that you are free from pain and discomfort. If you have gum disease or you are at risk of gum disease, we recommend regular hygiene sessions throughout the year.
Our team of hygienists is available from Monday through to Thursday with flexible late morning and early evening appointments on offer for those with a busy work schedule.

What do dental hygienists do?
Our experienced dental hygienists are specially trained to provide patients with advice about oral hygiene and oral health, manage and treat gum disease and provide preventative services for patients of all ages. Even if you have excellent oral health, you can still benefit from seeing a dental hygienist. Not only will your hygienist remove any troublesome bacteria from your mouth, but they will also give your teeth a thorough clean, which will ensure your smile looks beautiful and radiant.
Treatments offered by a dental hygienist include fluoride varnish and fissure sealant treatment for children, intensive cleaning treatments, such as a scale and polish, gum disease and halitosis treatment, oral health education and advice and stain removal.
How often should I see a dental hygienist?
If you have existing oral health problems, such as bad breath (halitosis) or gum disease, you will benefit from regular hygiene sessions. If you have good oral health, seeing a hygienist once or twice a year will help to keep oral diseases at bay.
Why is oral hygiene so important?
Most people know that good oral hygiene helps to lower the risk of gum disease and cavities, but the link between gum disease and other health problems may be less well-known. Studies have shown that people with periodontal disease (the advanced form of gum disease) have an increased risk of a wide range of general health problems, including heart disease and strokes.
If you have any questions about brushing or flossing, smoking or diet, our hygienists will be happy to help.
We pride ourselves on promoting good oral health and helping our clients to achieve healthy, beautiful smiles and we are delighted to offer a range of hygiene services. Our expert dental hygienists are an integral part of the Dublin18 team and we encourage adults and children to attend regular hygienist appointments to boost oral health and keep gum disease and cavities at bay.
What do hygienists do and how could I benefit from hygiene sessions?
Dental hygienists are experts in oral hygiene; they are trained to provide a range of hygiene services, including cleaning treatments and fresh breath treatment, as well as preventative services, such as sealant treatment and fluoride varnish, and advice about oral hygiene, healthy eating and oral health and quitting smoking.
Seeing a hygienist has many benefits; cleaning treatments help to remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth, which lowers the risk of gum disease, bad breath and decay and removes surface stains, giving the teeth a lovely, healthy sheen.
The mouth is often considered as a window to the body and numerous studies have now established a link between oral and general health; regular hygiene sessions reduce the risk of gum disease, which in turn, lowers the risk of serious illnesses, including heart disease and strokes.
Children can benefit from seeing a hygienist for preventative treatments, which help to protect the teeth from cavities.
How much do hygiene treatment sessions cost?
A 20 minute session with a dental hygienist costs €50 and a 30 minute session costs €68.

Why would I visit a dental hygienist?
In some cases you may be advised to see a dental hygienist by your dentist but you can also make appointments without a referral. Many patients enjoy the feeling of an intensive cleaning treatment and hygiene sessions help to reduce the risk of decay and gum disease. If you have symptoms of gum disease, you have been diagnosed with gum disease and you suffer from bad breath, your dentist will work with the dental hygienist to arrange your treatment plan and you will be advised to attend regular hygiene sessions. The aim of cleaning treatments is to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria from the mouth and reduce the risk of infection.
Dental hygiene for all the family
The whole family can benefit from a visit to the dental hygienist. Our hygienists provide preventative treatments for children and cleaning treatments for adults, which leave the teeth gleaming and glossy and the breath fresh and clean.

One of the most important services offered by our dental hygienists is gum disease treatment; our hygienists work closely with the dentists to treat and manage gum disease and ensure that patients are pain-free and as healthy as possible.

What does a hygienist do?
A dental hygienist is an expert in oral hygiene and the prevention of oral health conditions, such as gum disease. Dental hygienists actively promote good oral health, they are on hand to talk to patients about brushing tips, oral hygiene products and diet and they can also help with giving up smoking and making lifestyle changes. Dental hygienists also play a very important role in the prevention and treatment of gum disease, a very common condition, which is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
Why would I need to see a dental hygienist?
You can see a dental hygienist for many reasons and you do not necessarily have to have anything wrong with you to see a hygienist. Many people like to visit a hygienist on a regular basis to achieve a deep clean, keep their teeth looking clean and healthy and reduce their risk of developing oral health problems.
You may be advised to see a dental hygienist if you have gum disease or you smoke. A dental hygienist can use treatments, such as scale and polish, to remove deposits of tartar from the teeth and ensure that your mouth is as clean as possible. Tartar is a hard substance, which develops when plaque hardens; unlike plaque, it cannot be removed by brushing alone. Dental hygienists can also advise you about healthy eating, brushing and choosing the best dental hygiene products; they can also help with quitting smoking.
Visiting a dental hygienist will keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy and reduce your risk of developing oral health problems; recent studies have indicated that gum disease can contribute to an increased risk of heart disease, strokes and diabetes, so looking after your teeth and gums has never been more important! Contact us today at Dublin18 Dental Care near Ballinteer to find out more about our excellent dental hygiene service.
Prevention is better than cure in all walks of medicine and oral hygiene is the front line of defence against plaque, decay and infection regarding your pearly whites. Many people ask what the difference between a dentist and a dental hygienist is and, hopefully, the little introduction here has given you some idea; dentists cover everything, including the messy recover work, whereas dental hygienists work hard to make sure you never require messy recovery work. ‘But surely brushing twice a day takes care of that?’ Perhaps, but perhaps not; there could be a multitude of variable you are ignoring: Do you floss? Are brushing those newly protruding wisdom teeth? Are you teeth just starting to look bad even though you are brushing? If you’ve even hesitated at any of those questions, perhaps consider seeing a hygienist…
The cleaning itself
When you visit one of our hygienists near Foxrock, you will receive a special type of tooth cleaning called ‘scaling and polishing’. Even if you brush thoroughly twice a day for two minutes, there will still be areas that a conventional tooth brush cannot reach. Hygienists, however, are equipped with both the specialist knowledge and equipment to tackle and clean these common problem areas. They will even polish your teeth, thus removing any surface blemishes. Regular appointments are also advised as the trained eye of the hygienist can spot any potential problems that a layman might miss.
A little advice
Knowledge is power (or something like that) and perhaps the greatest gift the hygienist can offer is that of knowledge. They will be delighted to instruct you on the best homecare tooth cleaning products on the market and guide you through the best techniques that can be used to ensure a thorough cleaning. They can also offer dietary advice (as food obviously affects the teeth) as well as other general oral healthcare advice (such as how to give up smoking). You are in charge of your own oral health but, armed with the hygienists help, hopefully you’ll never have to visit us for more than a check-up. Even if all you need is confirmation that you’re doing everything right, a trip to the hygienist can be indispensable.
For optimum care and maintenance of your teeth, in addition to scheduled check ups, we suggest that our patients have regular visits with a dental hygienist as well. Attending regular appointments with a dental hygienist is a preventative method that could save you from unnecessary pain and problems. In fact, 90 per cent of the work dentists perform is totally and utterly preventable if patients pay regular visits to a dental hygienist.
During a routine check up, a hygienist would be able to look for clues that could lead to the prevention of oral cancer and gum disease. Regular hygienist appointments benefit our patients because they ensure that your teeth, gums and mouth are being maintained properly and are in good physical health.
Our dental hygienists have been specially trained to manage and prevent periodontal disease and to educate patients about ways to keep their mouths healthy. During your visit to a Dublin18 dental hygienist, he or she will:
- remove tartar built up on and around your teeth
- instruct you on how to prevent tartar from reforming
- perform a range of professional teeth cleaning procedures
- discuss your diet with you
- recommend various measures you can employ to prevent dental work
- provide you with a tailor-made programme for keeping your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.
We recommend that our patients maintain a regular relationship with a dental hygienist; this includes paying them a visit at least twice of year. Of course, the amount of time between visits to the dental hygienist may vary greatly depending on individual needs. Attending a regular check up is the best method for determining how frequently you need to visit the dental hygienist—at Dublin18 Dental Care near Carrickmines; we will help you to establish this.
