Oral Hygiene Introduction

Dental Hygienists are specially trained to work with the Dentist in giving care to patients. They play a vital role in dental health care and are mainly concerned with gum health, showing people correct home care and applying preventive materials to the teeth and gums.

Regular professional cleaning from the Hygienist, can help prevent dental disease. The Hygienist can remove the deposits that build up on the teeth (tartar), teach you how to prevent it reforming, and recommend other preventative methods to slow down your tooth decay.

Your Hygienist can recommend the products that are best for you to use to look after your teeth and gums and can look at your diet, to identify potential problem areas, for you to consider. For example, cutting down on how often you have sugary food and drinks.
