Maintain Good Oral Health with our

North London Walk-In Dental Hygienist Services

With our dental hygiene direct access policy at Holland Park Dental Centre, you can instantly book an appointment with one of our highly trained, professional dental hygienists at your convenience.

The cleaner your teeth are, the longer you can expect to keep them, and also fewer trips to the dentist.

Why should I see a Dental Hygienist?

Several areas in your mouth are ‘hard to reach’. Because of this, plaque can build up and harden, making it impossible for you to remove it at home. Your hygienist can access all these hard-to-reach areas as they have special tools and training that allow them to remove hardened plaque safely.

If the hardened plaque or calculus isn’t removed, it can lead to advanced gum disease. As gum disease advances, it can begin to destroy your tooth’s supporting structures – which will eventually lead to wobbly teeth. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults which is why we believe in a preventative approach to dentistry. Routine Dental Hygiene visits should be a part of your dental routine to protect your teeth and gums and help prevent the need for dental treatments.

Maintaining good oral health is also very important to your overall health and wellbeing. Studies have shown that poor oral health and chronic gum disease can be linked to dementia, inflammatory disease and pneumonia.

Do I have to see a dentist first?

Not anymore. You can book an online appointment to see a registered dental hygienist without being referred by your dentist. Our hygienists will see you as a new patient and provide you with a tailored hygiene regime and recall interval. We, of course, recommend that you see a dentist regularly too to keep an eye on the health of your teeth and soft tissues, but you can have your teeth cleaned without the say-so of a dentist, under what’s called ‘direct access’.

What does a dental hygienist do?

As well as scaling and polishing teeth, your dental hygienist will provide you with a tailored oral hygiene regime. The correct techniques for cleaning between your teeth, with the appropriate tools will be discussed and demonstrated. enabling you to maintain outstanding cleaning at home.

If you’re a smoker, your hygienist will also be able to provide you with smoking cessation advice at your request.

Stain removal is also a dental hygienist’s forte. Stains from daily indulgences like tea, coffee and red wine can be removed by a hygienist – instantly brightening your smile.

Does Dental Hygiene Hurt?

Scaling and polishing are generally pain-free. If you have particularly sensitive teeth, your dental hygienist will do everything they can to ensure your appointment is as comfortable as possible. If you have major discomfort, they can provide local anaesthetics to ensure you benefit from a thorough clean.

Our dental hygienists can provide you with professional and premium teeth cleaning services in London. During your dental hygiene treatment, we will use KaVo PROPHYpearls, a polishing technique that uses high pressure to help remove the stains from indulgences like coffee, chocolate and red wine to ensure fresh and sparkling clean teeth.

KaVo’s PROPHYpearls are spherical shapes and hence provide optimum cleaning power: The round surfaces offer more contact points than conventional powders and therefore work even more efficiently. At the same time, they are particularly gentle on the teeth, as they do not have any sharp edges.
