Spring is upon us, and what better time to treat your teeth to a deep clean? If you haven’t been to see your dental hygienist for as long as you can remember, now is the time to pick up the phone!
What do dental hygienists do?
Dental hygienists offer a range of powerful cleaning services and treatments, which are designed to improve the aesthetic of your smile at the same time as boosting your dental health. Hygienists are experts in dental hygiene, and they can provide a much deeper clean that you can achieve at home with your toothbrush. Hygiene treatments remove deposits like plaque and tartar and they can also polish your teeth and remove surface stains. After you’ve been to the hygienist, you should notice that your teeth look noticeably cleaner and your mouth feels lovely and fresh.
Do I need to see a hygienist?
If you have gum disease, you’re prone to plaque build-up, or you suffer from bad breath, your dentist may advise you to see a dental hygienist on a regular basis. However, anyone can benefit from hygiene treatments. Even if you have a clean bill of oral health, seeing a hygienist will help to keep your teeth and gums in check and also improve the appearance of your smile. Ideally, we recommend annual appointments for those with healthy teeth and gums. In addition to providing cleaning treatments, hygienists can offer advice and tips to help you hone your brushing skills and keep dental diseases at bay.
