In short, a Dental Hygienist is your prevention expert for your teeth and gums.
As they say in the classics…Prevention is better than the cure!
Regular visits to the hygienist, assists in preventing complications to your overall health, not to mention, the possibility of actually keeping your teeth as well as the prevention of gum disease, oral cancer and bad breath (halitosis).
Ultimately, regular visits with the dental hygienist will not only ensure a thorough teeth clean, but they can also take care of any other issues that may arise before your teeth or gums are damaged. Over time, we all have plaque and tartar build up on our teeth and the cleaning process aids in the removal of these hard and soft deposits that have built up in areas that we just can’t get to ourselves….regardless of how fastidious we are!
