Keeping up-to-date with your dental hygiene is essential for good, long-term oral health. By regularly visiting a professional oral hygienist, you’ll ensure that any build-up of harmful plaque is removed from your teeth and that your mouth and gums are healthy and free from caries and other surface bacteria.
If you are eager to improve your teeth and oral hygiene and have been searching for a “dental hygienist near me”, then our friendly Edinburgh hygienist is here for you. Contact our practice today on 0131 229 7899 to make an appointment or conveniently book an appointment online.
Plaque naturally builds up on the surfaces of our teeth. Every time we eat, this plaque then turns into acid which starts to attack our teeth. If not removed effectively, plaque can harden and turn into tartar, which can then result in tooth decay, cavities and the need for tooth extraction, fillings or costly dental work.
The most effective ways to combat the buildup of plaque are:
Regular visits to your dental hygienist
Proper and regular brushing
Use of dental-recommended mouthwash
A healthy diet that avoids overly sugary foods and drinks
If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of having built-up plaque or tartar on your teeth, a dental hygienist is best equipped to remove this plaque using specific tools. Through regular visits, you can ensure that plaque never builds up to the extent that it will cause serious dental issues further down the road.
Certain food and drink, such as coffee, tea and red wine, can cause staining on our teeth that cannot be removed with a toothbrush. We understand the impact this can have not just on your smile, but on your confidence and mental health.
To provide our patients with a solution, our dental hygienists use an advanced stain removal system called Airflow. This is a combination of water and bicarbonate powder that will eliminate stains and leave you with a brighter, whiter smile.
If this sounds like a service you’d be interested in, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Patients can also choose to undergo teeth whitening after any prominent stains have been removed to give themselves a truly dazzling white smile that will last for many years to come.
Whether you can’t get an appointment at your current dental practice, or you just need an oral hygiene freshener, Stuart Steven Dental Practice in Edinburgh has the right solution for you.
As a new patient, you can conveniently book an appointment with our hygienist without seeing or registering with a dentist first.
Simply give us a call on 0131 229 7899 to book a 30-minute scale and polish which will work wonders for both your oral health and the appearance of your teeth.
For any of our existing patients, please talk to your Edinburgh dentist about visiting our oral hygienist or simply book an appointment online for the date and time that suits you best.

Been attending Stuart's practice since his days in Chester Street. Excellent service and staff always very friendly. I've just completed a course of implant work (seven in all) and the procedure, treatment and aftercare were second to none, but glad it's all over lol. Looking forward to returning to 6 monthly check ups. Thanks again to Stuart and the Team.
Never liked going too the dentist but now it's a breeze , professional and friendly . Had 5 teeth out never felt a thing . Robbie Rocks !!!!
Been with these guys 7 years from the staff to the reminder texts, this is a fantastic practice
I recently joined Stuart's practice in May and can honestly say that I am extremely impressed! The whole team are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and have all the modern equipment. Stuart carried out some cosmetic work on my front teeth including a front crown and white filling to close the gap that had gradually developed over the years. I could not have expected a better result! I have my smile back, which to me is priceless. Massive thanks to Stuart (and the team) for doing such a great job. Lisa-Ann
I have to say that after 10 days the implant bridge is a great success. It is fabulous to be without the denture.
I am delighted with the whole treatment. I was made fully aware of all the options for my mouth and the costs involved with detailed explanations of all the stages.
A big thank you to all.
