Looking after your oral health
Improve your oral health with regular visits to our hygienist
Gum disease/Periodontal disease is a huge problem amongst adults and is one of our most common issues.
It is often undiagnosed, usually the patient will start to see bleeding gums when brushing their teeth, if not properly managed it is one of the major causes of tooth loss.
To maintain and promote good dental hygiene, it's essential that you pay regular visits to a qualified dental hygienist. At Timperley Village Dental, our skilled hygienist team will give your teeth a professional clean leaving your mouth feeling fresher and more healthy.
Not only does dental hygiene care help you maintain a healthy mouth, but it improves the appearance of your teeth and gums. Our professional team will help you reduce the appearance of stains, discolouration and tooth decay.
Call Timperley Village Dental today for more information.
What happens at a hygienist appointment?
Hygienists are important members of the dental team, providing professional teeth and gum cleaning, a process called scaling and polishing. At the beginning of the appointment your hygienist will carry out dental hygiene examination, taking measurements of your gums, plaque levels and noting any areas of bleeding.
They will then:
- Scale your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar build-up in those areas brushing cannot reach
- If required, perform a deeper clean below the gum line to help treat gum disease
- Polish your teeth to remove any superficial stains
- Provide tailored advice on how to maintain a good oral health routine and demonstrate techniques you can use at home
Your hygienist can spot signs of gum disease and will offer to refer you to a periodontist if they see anything that needs further treatment.
Timperley Village Dental Practice is thrilled to use AirFlow polishing for our hygienist treatments.
AirFlow is a powerful new technology that uses a combination of jet water, air and sodium bicarbonate to provide a first-class clean.
There are a few benefits to using AirFlow:
- The most effective way of removing stains from your teeth
- It's pain-free
- Improve the efficiency of teeth whitening
- Minimally invasive
- Gently cleans around implants, crowns and veneers
How often should I visit a hygienist?
It very much depends on your personal clinical needs. If your teeth are prone to gum disease, you may have to visit more often than others. However, even those with generally healthy teeth should still visit the hygienists every six months.

I have nothing but praise for this dental practice. I'm not the bravest of people when it comes to visiting the dentist but my experiences here have all been good ones, from obtaining an urgent appointment if needed, to any treatment required by either the dentists or the dental hygienists. All the staff are so helpful and lovely and that in itself puts you at your ease. I would say to anyone looking to register with a dentist, look no further!
Highly recommend this dentist. Have had a great experience at every appointment and never feel nervous about going to the dentist anymore. Hygienists are also very good and dentists like to work on preventative measures to try and keep your teeth in top condition rather than having to have treatment which is the way it should be really!
Excellent treatment and care with attention to detail at every visit. Very attentive staff and Dentists, they listen to your comments about your concerns, and co-operate to the nth degree, to make the treatment and visit as comfortable and painless as is possible, under the circumstances of the condition. I am an extremely satisfied patient and would have no hesitation in recommending the practice to others.
Very impressed with Timperley Dental Practice. Fab building and location, super friendly staff, very professional and modern ways of filling forms and booking appointments. Clean and modern public areas and attentive dentists and hygienists. I was made to feel very welcome for both my recent appointments. Would recommend to anyone in the Timperley area.
A very friendly and calming dental practice. From making your appointment to having your treatment, everything will run smoothly and reassuringly. A practice I would recommend to anyone.
I was really nervous about finding a new dentist when I relocated to Timperley but couldn’t be happier with the whole team. They have been brilliant and attentive with my children, as well as myself and my dentist fearing husband.... who now doesn’t fear them! I would highly recommend Timperley Village Dental Practice.
I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are all highly professional and very talented in their fields of expertise. I have had Invisalign through the practice and I can’t thank Vijay enough for my amazing smile. Even now 2 years on from having them I go back for check ups and I leave feeling very happy with my teeth. The best in the business!! Thank you Timperley Dental Practice
