Hygiene & Gum Treatment in Delhi

Dental hygienists are specially trained to work with the dentist and play an important part in dental health care and are mainly concerned with gum health – showing people correct home care and helping to keep the teeth and gums healthy.

What does a dental hygienist do?

Their main work is to professionally clean the patient’s teeth, called ‘scaling and polishing’ but their most important role is showing people the best way to keep their teeth free of plaque, the sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth.

They also give advice on diet and preventing dental decay. Hygienists are also on hand to remove stains on teeth that can build up from a busy lifestyle – such as smoking, red wine, tea, coffee etc.

They will also give you the knowledge on how you can be more efficient in cleaning at home so you are not waiting for your next hygiene visit to have your mouth feel cleaner.


When you go to visit your dental hygienist you will be given an initial score and assessment on the condition of your teeth and gums. Over the course of your treatment, each time you visit, we will assess your continuing teeth and gum condition against the initial score. You then be able to see if your dental hygiene and oral healthcare routine is improving over time. This provides an accurate way of measuring your oral healthcare and ensuring that you are staying healthy in the long term.

How to clean your teeth

In order to ensure that your teeth stay as fit and healthy between each six monthly visit to our hygienist in Delhi we recommend that you follow this daily healthcare routine. You should clean your teeth at least twice per day in the morning after breakfast and just before going to bed at night. The easiest way to do this is to divide your mouth into four equal sections, top and bottom, left and right. And then clean in the following sequence:

  • Clean your teeth on the top left
  • Clean your teeth on the top right
  • Clean your teeth on the lower left
  • Clean your teeth on the lower right

You should also remember that your teeth also have three surfaces to them.

  • The tongue side
  • The cheeks side
  • The biting surface

Spend a short amount of time on each surface of each tooth. If you split the quadrants into 30 seconds each you will spend 2 min over all cleaning your teeth twice per day.

It is also recommended that you floss your teeth each day. When you clean with a toothbrush you can only reach the three surfaces of your tooth as mentioned before, however there are other sections of your tooth where they touch that you cannot clean with a toothbrush. Using dental floss will allow you to clean between your teeth ensuring that you remove any food residues in these difficult to reach areas.

Melanin pigmentation often occurs in the gingiva as a result of an abnormal deposition of melanin, due to which the gums may appear black.Melanin, a nonhemoglobin-derived brown pigment, is the most common of the endogenous pigments and is produced by melanocytes present in the basal layer of the epithelium. Gingival hyperpigmentation is caused by excessive deposition of melanin located in the basal and suprabasal cell layers of the epithelium.

Whilst you can get your teeth thoroughly cleaned by your dentist, opting for a dental hygienist will ensure that you come away with the healthiest and cleanest mouth possible. Hygienists are specially trained to help you prevent decay and keep gums and teeth in optimal condition, but this level of specialism is an investment.

How regularly do I need to get our teeth cleaned?

Generally speaking, it is a good idea to get your teeth cleaned once every 6 months, however this amount may vary depending on your particular needs. In some cases, there may be a need for more regular visits.

Can a dental hygienist show me how to take care of my teeth better?

Absolutely! One of the biggest benefits to seeing a specialist hygienist is that you will leave with a plethora of knowledge and information to empower you to take better care of your smile to reduce how regularly you need intervention. From advising on how to best brush your teeth to maintaining any specific aspects of your oral health such as braces – there is no better source of information than a dental hygienist.
