Dental hygienists are specially trained to work alongside dentists in giving dental care to their patients. They play a very important role and are mainly concerned with ensuring and maintaining impeccable oral health.
Dental hygienists have both clinical and health promotional responsibilities. Clinically they help to treat and prevent periodontal (gum) disease by scaling and polishing teeth; they undertake monitoring and screening procedures.
Their health promotional role includes motivating and encouraging individuals and groups in oral health practices including oral hygiene and diet advice.
Regular professional cleaning, combined with motivation and advice on how to improve your dental care routine at home will produce huge dental benefits.
Research has shown that good dental health significantly reduces the risk of filling replacement, new cavities, gum recession, food trapping and teeth drifting.
Gum disease is also linked to heart disease and diabetes. We recommend you visit your dental hygienist regularly as research shows that a clean and healthy mouth is the simplest way to stop expensive dental repairs.
You may need more than one hygienist appointment but at the end of the treatment you will have a fresh healthy smile.
