Regular visits to a dental hygienist are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. Dental hygienists are trained professionals who specialize in preventing and treating oral diseases. They are equipped with the knowledge and tools to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums, removing plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Moreover, regular visits to a dental hygienist can help to identify potential issues early on, preventing more serious and costly dental problems in the future. In addition, dental hygienists provide valuable education and advice on proper oral hygiene techniques, such as brushing and flossing, and can recommend the most suitable products for individual dental care needs.
A dental hygienist performs various tasks, including but not limited to, conducting oral assessments, taking and developing dental X-rays, removing plaque and calculus from teeth, applying preventive materials such as sealants and fluoride, and educating patients on proper oral hygiene practices. They also play an important role in screening patients for signs of oral diseases and collaborating with dentists to create personalized treatment plans. Furthermore, dental hygienists often provide valuable support to patients by addressing their concerns, providing reassurance, and offering guidance for improving their oral health.
Patients Should Book Cleaning Appointments Every Six Months
Disease prevention starts with you. It is of utmost importance to develop and maintain an optimal at-home oral care plan while also booking regular cleaning appointments at our dental office. During a cleaning appointment, one of our friendly and gentle dental hygienists will perform the following:
Exam & Disease Screening
Preventative care begins with a thorough exam of your mouth, face, neck, lips, tongue and throat, and checking for cavities of course.
Scaling is the process of removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and below the gumline to keep them nice and healthy.
Afterwards, an abrasive paste will be applied to your teeth in a flavour of your choice to whiten them and strengthen enamel.
Leftover debris will be removed with floss, an important aspect that should be included in your daily at-home oral care routine.
