Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a dental hygienist who will help to remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipments and pastes, this processing is also known as scaling and polishing. An important aspect of the hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using interdental brushes.
Dental hygiene at the dental practice also forms part of treating gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the dentists will be able to assist you with.
It is recommended that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stay clean and healthy.
