Our Dental Hygienists Are The Best!

 

The role of the dental hygienist

Dental hygienists are specialists in preventative dentistry and play an important role in the prevention and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. We work with the Dentist to form a program to meet the specific needs of each patient. We also offer patients instruction on correct home care routines and products to use. It is also useful to show children different ways to make brushing time more fun.

Regular cleanings and check-ups, along with good home care are necessary to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Bleeding and swollen gums are a sign of gum disease caused by the bacterial infection from plaque. This may progress into bone loss and subsequently tooth loss.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), some form of gum disease affects about 3 out of 4 adults over the age 35 and is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.


New research is showing that periodontal disease may be a risk factor and have a role in many serious health ailments, such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, pre-term births. osteoporosis and upper respiratory infections.

Not only will a clean mouth help improve your appearance and self confidence, it will contribute to better health. We will take excellent care of you and look forward to helping you meet your oral hygiene needs.
