When you visit our team in the dental office, you’ll also meet our registered dental hygienists.
Dental hygienists focus on preventive dentistry. They evaluate your oral and overall health and detect any potential problems. Like your dentist, they help ensure that you get to keep your teeth in good shape for the long term.
Apart from removing stains and plaque on your teeth, your dental hygienist also take x-rays. They can also apply agents such as dental sealants to prevent cavities from developing again, as well as administer sedation for dentistry such as nitrous oxide.
Our registered dental hygienists can also perform laser therapy, along with regular scaling and root planing, to improve health of your gums. If you need dental fillings, your hygienist can also apply this for you.
Most importantly, if you have concerns about oral hygiene, your hygienist can assist you. They are able to educate you on proper dental care habits and the preventive routine you should practice at home and pass on to your loved ones.
Seeing your dentist and hygienist will help prevent the need for costly dental treatments in the future. Schedule your dental visit today!
