Hygienist case study at our Watford dentist, Senova Dental Studios in Watford, Hertfordshire
"I just had to write and extend my thanks for the professional way in which you have dealt with my oral hygiene over the last 2 years. You have turned what was regarded by 2 other independent opinions as a hopeless case into a positive prognosis that has surpassed even my own expectations. I now face the future with a fresh outlook and a more healthy oral hygiene than I could have imagined."
Mr D. (Chalfont St Peter)

Dental hygiene

The goal of a dental hygienist is to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Good dental hygiene helps you keep your teeth for life.

97% of the population suffer from some level of gum disease and it is this (and not tooth decay) that is the major cause of tooth loss in adult patients.

Advanced Screening Methods

Our hygienists are skilled and trained in the latest periodontal treatments and they use advanced screening methods to determine the levels of bacteria and infection in your mouth. The capability they possess to keep your mouth infection-free goes far beyond scaling and polishing your teeth.

For this reason, Senova Dental Studios places the need for regular hygiene visits on equal terms with regular dental visits.

"I hadn’t visited the dentist for 8 years and I was both nervous and embarrassed. I have only had half the work done so far but I can’t stop smiling and I am now much more confident. I can’t say enough about the Senova team. I have never met such a pleasant and efficient group of people, always willing to help. You have put the smile back on my face."
Mr G. (Watford)

Fluoride

Fluoride is safe, effective and supported by every major health organisation in the fight against dental disease.

At Senova Dental Studios, our hygienists routinely offer topical fluoride applications to improve your protection against decay.

Sealants

A sealant is a thin, plastic film that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of back teeth.

Scientific studies have proven that properly applied sealants are 100% effective in protecting the tooth surface from caries.

In line with our practice philosophy regarding prevention, all parents are encouraged to elect to have their children’s teeth fissure sealed.

Mouth guards

Senova Dental Studios provides state of the art, custom-made mouth guards for all patients requiring protection during competition in at risk sports.

Store bought, over the counter, mouth guards do not fit as well as custom-made ones nor do they offer the necessary protection against dental/facial injuries. The only mouth guard that should be worn is that made from a model of the mouth.

The professionally designed, custom-made mouth guard satisfies all individual requirements with respect to fit, comfort, level of competition and compliance.
