Dental Hygiene

Good dental hygiene practices begin at home. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day as a minimum.

Make an appointment twice a year for a dental check-up and a visit to the hygienist for a professional cleaning.

What does a hygienist do besides clean my teeth?

A dental hygienist provides one of the most important aspects of dentistry — preventative care. Having a professional cleaning at least twice a year can significantly enhance your oral hygiene.

A dental hygienist is also an educator. They can answer questions and teach you how to care for your teeth and gums properly.

What should I expect during my hygiene appointment?

Your hygienist will first examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay or gum disease. They will also investigate for any build-up of plaque or tartar, particularly in hard-to-reach areas you might miss while brushing.

Your hygienist will perform a scale and polish. They remove any stubborn bacterial deposits from the surface of your teeth and around your gum lining, reducing your risk of complications.

A hygienist can also carry out a more advanced hygiene treatment called airflow tooth polishing.

How can poor dental hygiene affect overall health?

Poor dental hygiene can cause tooth decay and gum disease which can impair your ability to speak and eat properly, as well as lead to tooth loss.

Poor dental health is also linked to heart issues and diabetes.
