Why seeing a Dental Hygienist is a very good idea...


Seeing a dental hygienist regularly is vital to maintaining good oral health for both adults and children.

This is because brushing and flossing daily is just not enough to reach the hidden areas where tartar and plaque can build up. In addition to thoroughly cleaning your teeth the dental hygienists’ role includes assessing your oral health, checking your teeth for signs of decay, screening your mouth for oral cancer, and scaling and polishing your teeth.

By advising you on your diet and recommending other preventive measures, the hygienist can assist you to keep a routine that will help prevent tooth decay and maintain healthy gums. They will also advise you on how often you should visit your dentist to maintain your oral health.
