VISITING THE HYGIENIST
Dental hygienists are specially trained to work in conjunction with the dentist in giving care to patients.
A hygienist’s most important role is to educate patients with oral hygiene instruction, showing patients the best way to keep teeth free from plaque and scale ensuring healthy teeth and gums.
They also provide professional cleaning to get to those areas that patients might not be able to reach. Removing stubborn stains can make a big improvement on the appearance of a smile.
For some patients the dentist can do this, but others require the specialist treatment the hygienist can provide. A hygienist can spend more time with an individual and they are experts at teaching and motivating patients on how to look after their teeth and gums.
