Healthy teeth and gums with regular hygiene appointments
Good dental hygiene is essential to having healthy teeth and gums and that is why having regular appointments with your dental hygienist is just as important as your routine checkups with your dentist. A dental hygienist is a qualified oral hygiene professional who takes a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums and uses special treatments to remove any stubborn plaque, tartar and stains building up on and around the teeth and below the gum line that regular brushing alone cannot always remove. Hygienists are also experts in caring for those patients with more severe gum problems such as gingivitis and periodontitis and assist those with specific hygiene needs such as those who wear dentures, braces or have a bridge or dental implant.
