Dental hygiene is the single most important contribution to a successful dental treatment plan. Without maintained hygiene, all dental plans can fail. The health of the gums and supporting bone structure to the teeth is important in the long-term success of dental treatment.
Seeing a Dental Hygienist regularly is necessary to maintaining good oral health care. Brushing and flossing daily is not enough to reach the hidden areas where tartar and plaque can build up. A Dental Hygienist uses special instruments to clean your teeth, remove tartar and plaque, and help prevent gum disease or bone loss. A dental hygienist can also advise you on products you can use to help improve your home oral hygiene routine.
