Hygienists & Dentists
Our dentists can diagnose and treat conditions related to your gums and teeth, but they can also look at the overall aesthetics of your smile as well as ensure your mouth is functioning as best as it can. Dental hygienists on the other hand, focus on gum disease and its treatment.
Through scaling teeth and removing any plaque and tartar (especially in those hard to reach areas), they help to prevent infection or inflammation, which can lead to gum disease, bad breath, and even bone loss if left untreated. Both dentists and hygienists play a vital role together to ensure better patient care with your oral health.
The role of a Dental Hygienist
As we all know, prevention is better than a cure, therefore a regular check-up with a hygienist will ensure your gums stay healthy, avoiding discomfort and money in the future from gum and teeth issues. It involves a professional clean of your teeth using dental instruments such as air jets and polishers, to loosen and remove tartar and plaque deposits form your teeth.
Your teeth will instantly feel much cleaner and healthier, and look much brighter. Dental hygienists are also able to apply special sealants to the biting surfaces, and other fluoride gels to help prevent dental decay.
They can discuss any dietary issues, and show you better brushing and flossing techniques, as it all plays a vital role in reducing decay. It is also advisable that you visit the hygienist for a thorough scale and polish before considering any teeth whitening options.
This is to ensure the whitening will be as effective as possible. You may wish to first consider our Air Flow treatment, which isn’t teeth whitening, but it involves the use of water jets, air and sodium bicarbonate to thoroughly clean teeth to restore their natural colour back. This works well to remove stains from tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco.
It is recommended that you get your teeth professionally cleaned at least once a year, or more if you already show signs of gum disease. Call today to book an appointment with our Hygienist.
