About Dental Hygienist and Their Treatments
Who are dental hygienists
Our dental hygienists are licensed oral health professionals who work alongside dentists to help prevent and treat oral health problems. They typically perform a wide range of tasks related to dental hygiene.
What are dental hygiene treatments
Dental hygienist treatments encompass a range of essential oral health treatments and care provided by trained professionals. These services are aimed at maintaining and promoting healthy teeth and gums, ultimately contributing to a confident and radiant smile. Our dental hygienists perform thorough teeth cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and stains, which helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease. They also offer valuable guidance on proper oral hygiene practices and provide insights into maintaining optimal oral health at home.
Additionally, our dental hygienists may offer treatments such as fluoride applications and sealants to enhance the strength and protection of teeth. Their expertise extends to educating patients about the significance of oral health and its impact on overall well-being.
Whether it’s preventive care, personalised advice, or in-depth cleanings, dental hygienist services play a pivotal role in ensuring a healthy and vibrant smile.
Why are these treatments important?
Getting your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis, along with friendly guidance to enhance your at-home oral care routine, can bring about significant dental advantages. Studies reveal that effective cleaning substantially lowers the chances of gum disease, needing to replace fillings, developing new cavities, gum recession, and the possibility of food getting stuck – which might result in localised infections and not-so-pleasant breath. It’s worth noting that gum disease is also associated with heart issues and can pose extra challenges during pregnancy. Your dental well-being matters, and our approach ensures you’re well taken care of every step of the way.
Are these treatments painful?
Regular professional cleaning combined with coaching to improve homecare oral hygiene will ensure huge dental benefits. Research shows that good cleaning significantly reduces the risk of gum disease, replacement fillings, new cavities, gum recession and food trapping which may lead to localised infections and bad breath. Gum disease is also linked to heart disease and can be more problematic during pregnancy.
