Hygiene Services

Kimbolton Dental Practice

At Kimbolton Dental Practice we offer professional hygienist services for the effective prevention of gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK.


Our friendly and experienced hygienists are very important members of our team and offer advice on daily oral hygiene along with professional teeth cleaning, for the long-term prevention of gum disease and dental decay. Our hygienists also work alongside the dentists to help with long-term gum disease management and treatment.

Effective Gum Disease Prevention

Gum disease prevention is at the heart of a hygienist’s training and treatment. If our dentist recommends you see the hygienist it is because you may have symptoms of gum disease and so effective and active treatment is relevant. Our Bedford hygienist will be able to provide treatments, advice and a long-term care plan to help avoid any further development of the gum issues you have.

Dental Hygiene Advice

The dental hygienist may floss your teeth and advise you to begin flossing as part of your dental hygiene regime. Floss is extremely helpful because it removes any food debris and plaque from between the teeth, where the toothbrush may not reach. If food debris and plaque is not treated it may lead to gum irritation and tooth decay. Alongside flossing information, the hygienist may also offer individual advice on how you brush your teeth, and recommend which tools and products you use to clean your teeth and gums effectively.

Professional Scale And Polish

Our highly qualified hygienist provides additional services including professional cleaning of the teeth, where hard plaque build-ups are removed. This cleaning treatment removes stains from the teeth, brightening and whitening their appearance. Using a combination of water, air and tiny particles of carbonate applied at high pressure, this chemical-free treatment is a useful alternative to teeth whitening to remove surface staining. Many patients book in for comprehensive teeth cleaning with our hygienist before an important meeting or event.
