Dental Hygienist

"Just been to see Kate for the first time and was amazed at how different the approach and expertise was. I went in to get my teeth cleaned or I suppose you would say to have dental hygienist appointment. My teeth are clean but I also got my gums checked, advice / demo on brushing and cleaning my teeth and gums. Kate was lovely, friendly and very professional. On the way out I even said that I had enjoyed the appointment and felt rested."

At Audley Dental Solutions, our in-house dental hygienist, Kate Barker, helps our patients maintain good oral health by offering professional teeth cleaning services to protect against gum disease and tooth decay. She is highly experienced in treating disease around dental implants, using advanced techniques and local anaesthetics on patients so treatments are pain-free.

Why is it important to see a dental hygienist?

Regular dental hygiene visits ensure your gums and teeth are maintained and kept in the best possible shape. It helps to avoid tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. You also receive tailored oral hygiene advice to ensure you have the most effective routine at home.

Dental hygiene for implant patients

Dental Implants need to be looked after to keep them healthy. Seeing a dental hygienist every 3-6 months will help to ensure your implants stay healthy long-term and avoid any problems.

Performing a minimally-invasive treatment called Perioflow, implant surfaces can be dealt with gently on both soft and hard tissues, using a mixture of air, water and antibacterial spray to effectively remove bacteria.

The benefits of seeing a dental hygienist

  • Removal of plaque and tartar build-up that can’t be achieved from brushing

  • Deeper-level treatments under local anesthetics

  • Advice and essential treatment for keeping teeth, gums, and yourself healthy

  • Get brighter, whiter teeth by cleaning and polishing to remove stains caused by smoking, red wine, coffee and tea.
