A dental hygienist is a licensed oral healthcare professional who works alongside dentists to provide preventive and therapeutic oral care. The main role of a dental hygienist is to help patients maintain optimal oral health through education, assessment, and treatment of oral conditions.
Regular visits to a dental hygienist, in conjunction with regular visits to a dentist, can help you maintain optimal oral health, prevent dental problems, and receive timely treatment for any issues that may arise. The frequency of dental hygiene visits may vary depending on your individual oral health needs, and your dental hygienist can provide recommendations based on your specific situation. It’s important to follow a consistent oral healthcare routine and visit your dental hygienist and dentist as recommended to ensure the best possible oral health outcomes.
Our focus is on prevention and this is why we believe it is critical to visit the hygienist regularly to assist you in maintaining the health of your gums and prevent gum disease. This is provided through regular maintenance cleaning at least twice a year, oral hygiene instruction and education.
