Gum Treatment and Dental Hygienist in Tunbridge Wells
Much of our gum treatment is carried out by our dental hygienist in a welcoming and relaxed environment. All of our patients at The Town House in Tunbridge Wells are screened regularly for gum disease in your regular dental check ups. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, will require treatment to restore gums to their optimum health. This is not only to ensure the health of your mouth but also to prevent major health problems from occurring as a result of periodontal disease.
You may have a had an uncomfortable experience with gum treatment before, but it is important to know that all of our hygienist have a gentle approach and gum treatment becomes more comfortable with time. You also don’t need to be registered with our dentist to get a hygienist appointment see below for more information about direct access
You now have the option of booking an appointment to see your dental hygienist directly without needing to see the dentist first. We have two hygienists working at the Town House who can see you without you having to see the dentist first.
At your appointment your dental hygienist will complete a thorough examination of your mouth and will undertake any treatment necessary which falls within their “Scope of Practice”. This sometimes may require further appointments.
Scope of practice
Dental hygienists practising under Direct Access are not expected to make a diagnosis or provide treatment outside of their “Scope of Practice”. Dental hygienists are not all expected to practice under Direct Access, only those whose training, including post graduate training enables them to do so and the choice to see a dental hygienist directly remains entirely with you.
