Oral Hygiene at Pearl Smile Dental Group

Maintain a healthy smile with regular dental hygiene visits

Our dentists will always need to carry out an initial new patient examination, but after you have been checked you can simply book future appointments with our dental hygienists who will look after your teeth and gums, ensuring you maintain that clean and healthy smile. Appointments are only 20 minutes long, but can be extended to 30 minutes or 40 minutes dependent on the dentist or hygienist, and you can visit more often than the minimum recommended twice yearly.

What Happens at an Oral Hygiene Appointment?

Oral hygiene appointments are more than just advising you how to clean your teeth properly. We will check if your gums are healthy or receding and at the beginning stages of gum disease. If left untreated, the condition will worsen and could result in the loss of one or more teeth. Our hygienist will check for any redness, inflamed or bleeding gums.

Oral Hygiene Advice

Flossing in between teeth and brushing regularly will help prevent the build up of deposits left in the mouth after eating. Lack of practicing good oral hygiene will encourage bacteria to form within pockets around the teeth and gum line. This bacteria then hardens and plaque develops which needs to be removed.

Bacteria can also cause bad breath, known as halitosis. Your oral hygienist at Pearl Smile Dental Group will not only scale, clean and polish your teeth, but will educate patients on how to look after their own teeth including providing necessary dietary advice to minimise sugar intake or foods and drinks that discolour white teeth.

If you would like to book an oral hygiene visit, please call your nearest Pearl Smile Dentist and speak to one of our friendly reception staff. Alternatively, you can fill in the enquiry form on this page and a member of our dental team will contact you shortly.

Naema is a fantastic hygienist! Went in with periodontal disease and after a frank talk and some really useful practical advice I’m on the road to recovery. Five stars.

Following my appointment of today with Naima Algwil, I am delighted with the service I have received. I am a nervous patient who has recently suffered with periodontitis, resulting in extremely sensitive gums. With the use of a hand-held mirror, Naima has taken time to explain and demonstrate clearly how to improve my brushing technique. She has also shown me how to use the Tepe brushes effectively. I have applied her recommendations which have made a considerable improvement to the health of my gums in a relatively short space of time. Naima has a very reassuring and professional manner. which I appreciate. I will continue to follow her advice. Thank you Naima!

I’ve recently had two fillings with Dr Malik and she has been amazing in terms of explaining everything and making me feel comfortable. I can not recommend her and the practice enough!

Our Dentist was very caring of all my children's needs including my 9 month old too. He helped make them feel at ease. Excellent communication skills and attention to detail. Offering the best care to each of them.

I've been attending this practice for many years now, & I stay with the practice as the quality of the dentistry is superb. The work Dr Nilesh Bhavsar has done for me over the years has truly been second to none, he is very precise and displays excellent dexterity. Years ago I was butchered by an emergency dentist elsewhere who did a terrible extraction leaving shards of broken tooth in my gums, following that I registered here - not only did Dr Bhavsar fix that but apart from regular check ups, fillings etc I've had a couple of challenging issues such as a very complex trapped nerve/ root canal - that I'd previously been told I'd need to see a specialist for - & a bridge (with false tooth) to fill a gap. The dentistry has been beyond anything I've received elsewhere in 40+ years & I am deeply impressed and beyond grateful for the skilled care. I never feel rushed and I always get suggestions/ feedback on where I need to brush better or less hard. I also bring my child here to see another dentist and am equally pleased with the care, patience & understanding shown. In recent times the practice has invested in some remodelling, which has opened up the building entrance and reception area and it has made a great improvement. New phone system and some new reception staff are other positives and on my first visit of 2023 I was really impressed with seeing the changes & the overall uplift to the feel of the practice which is now a better reflection of the most important part, the excellent dental care.

The staff at Pearl Smile have always been great, very welcoming and friendly. After my orthodontic treatment I needed a great deal of work on my teeth to get that perfect smile that I’ve always wanted. Dr Nilesh Bhavsar has been one of the best dentists that I’ve ever visited and advised me for the right treatment that I needed. His confidence and expertise really gave me the comfort knowing I was in good hands, he is such a perfectionist in his work. Thank you to all at Pearl Smile, I do have those perfect set of teeth now!!
