The health of the gums and supporting bone structure to the teeth is important in the long-term success of dental treatment. Seeing a Dental Hygienist regularly is necessary to maintaining good oral health care. Brushing and flossing daily is not enough to reach the hidden areas where tartar and plaque can build up. A Dental Hygienist uses special instruments to clean your teeth, remove tartar and plaque, and help prevent gum disease or bone loss. A dental hygienist can also advise you on products you can use to help improve your home oral hygiene routine.
A combination of regular hygienist appointments with your own home care is the best way to maintain a healthy mouth. Lowering sugar intake, as well as the number of times you eat throughout the day will also help to limit tooth decay. Booking regular hygienist appointments will help to keep their teeth clean and to educate them on the best way to maintain a healthy mouth.
