You already know that good oral hygiene is fundamental to having healthy teeth and gums. However, daily life can sometime interfere with strict adherence to a good dental hygiene regimen. It’s therefore essential to supplement regular dental check-ups with routine visits to the dental hygienist.
Hygienist treatments include a thorough assessment of the health of your teeth and gums and the gentle removal of any stubborn plaque and tartar build-up around the teeth and below the gum line that simple brushing alone cannot always remove. Plaque and tartar, if left to their own devices, can cause significant problems associated with gum disease and tooth decay.
Our experienced dental hygienists work with our dentists to provide you with the very best in oral health care. Not only do they give your teeth a deep clean, which can improve your teeth’s appearance instantly, but they will advise you on how to maintain your oral health through proper brushing and flossing technique. Their advice is especially important for those patients with severe gum problems such as gingivitis and periodontitis, and for those who have had extensive reconstructive work such as implants.
