What Is A Dental Hygienist?


Dental hygienists emphasize preventive care and provide tailored advice on how to improve oral hygiene levels. A hygienist makes it their focus to find and treat any gum diseases, clean teeth, and remove built-up plaque and tartar.
Our hygienist will consult with you about your dental hygiene, advising you on how to better it, and also suggest the things that you should avoid when eating and drinking, since they may be harmful to your teeth and make oral hygiene more difficult.

What Happens During A Dental Hygienist Appointment?


During a dental hygienist appointment, our hygienist will first professionally clean your teeth, and it’s called a scale and polish. Our dental hygienist will perform a routine oral health examination.
A dental hygienist appointment includes:

  • Our hygienist will conduct a scale of your teeth to remove any built-up plaque and tartar. It’s especially helpful for the hard-to-reach parts of your mouth and teeth.
  • Next, the hygienist will clean your teeth to remove any superficial stains. If your teeth are discoloured from excessive teeth staining, teeth whitening treatments may be suggested.
  • Our dentist will then have a discussion with you about your current diet and oral hygiene habits, as well as offer advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene. Our hygienist may also provide demonstrations on at-home techniques for taking care of your teeth so you can maintain good oral hygiene.


Why Good Dental Hygiene Is Important


Good dental hygiene is vital for both oral and overall health. In addition to improving your smile, good dental hygiene can also help keep you healthy by preventing cavities, plaque buildup, gum disease, and bad breath.

How Often Should I Visit A Dental Hygienist?


The frequency of your visits with your dental hygienist may depend on how diligently you brush your teeth. If you are having difficulty due to the way you take care of your teeth, then you may need to see our hygienist more often. Alternatively, you may also book dentist appointments to receive professional teeth cleaning and polishing, based on your personal desire to keep your teeth clean and shiny. This is to ensure that your teeth and mouth are in the best condition possible.
