What do dental hygiene services involve?
Dental hygienists play a critical role in the health of your teeth. They have been professionally trained to clean patients’ teeth, and they are mainly concerned with treating gum disease and preventive dental health. They provide important home care advice on looking after your teeth, including tips on keeping plaque away, how to prevent dental decay, and the best food to eat to maintain teeth health.
Regular visits to a dental hygienist will help to prevent dental disease, as they will carefully remove calculus – hard deposits of tartar – and plaque – soft deposits – which build up on your teeth. They will use the latest equipment and techniques to make sure that nothing is left behind. This is known as scaling and polishing, and regular appointments will ensure that your teeth and gums are truly clean. It can also help in preventing bad breath. The dental hygienist will teach you about how to prevent calculus from coming back. This all works to slow down the progress of gum disease by a considerable degree.
