Dental hygiene is an essential aspect of your oral health care. While regularly brushing and flossing your teeth at home go a long way to ensuring a vibrant smile, a thorough cleaning performed by a dental hygienist is crucial.
Keeping Your Gums Healthy
One of the main reasons to visit a dental hygienist is to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Food particles trapped below the gumline develop into a hard substance called tartar. Tartar can be very difficult to remove and can lead to gum infections such as gingivitis.
What to Expect During a Hygiene Appointment
Your dental hygienist will use special tools to remove any stubborn tartar or calculus that has developed along the gumline. They will also discuss strategies to prevent tartar buildup and suggest brushing and flossing techniques for improved oral care.
