2018 is here, and most of us are keen to get off on the right foot. If you’re keen to boost your health this year, taking steps to protect your teeth and gums is a great place to start, so why not book a hygiene appointment?
The benefits of seeing a dental hygienist
You may assume that you only need to see a dental hygienist if you’ve got gum disease or bad breath, but this is not the case. Dental hygiene appointments are an excellent preventative measure, which can boost your oral health and help you steer clear of gum disease and decay. Seeing a hygienist can also enable you to take advantage of expert advice, which could help you to protect your smile for longer.
What can a hygienist do?
Hygienists are experts in providing dental hygiene treatments and they can also offer tailored advice to help you reduce your risk of dental diseases such as gum disease and decay. Hygienists are instrumental in the treatment of excessive plaque, gum disease and bad breath, but even if you have excellent oral health you can benefit from hygiene services. Hygienists use advanced cleaning techniques and equipment to provide intensive cleaning, make the mouth feel fresh and give your smile a healthy glow.
How often should I see a dental hygienist?
If you’re prone to dental issues or you have symptoms of bad breath or gum disease, you may be advised to see a hygienist on a regular basis. If you have a clean bill of oral health, an annual session may be recommended.
