WHAT IS A HYGIENIST?
Dental hygienists and dental therapists are specially trained to work with the dentist to give care to patients and can help with your treatment plan. Many are qualified as both hygienist and therapist.
They play an important part in dental health care.
WHAT IS A DENTAL HYGIENIST'S ROLE IN THE PRACTICE?
Dental hygienists are mainly concerned with ‘preventive’ dental health and treating gum disease – showing you correct home care and helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This includes professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar (usually called a ‘scale and polish’ or a prophylaxis). However, perhaps their most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth. Hygienists also give advice about diet and about preventing tooth decay. The hygienist will work with your dental team to give you the care that is tailored to your needs.
AIR POLISHER NOW AVAILABLE
Air polishing is a very gentle method of stain removal and is comfortable even for those of us with very sensitive teeth. A fine jet of compressed powder, air and water is sprayed against the tooth surface. As a result this completely removes dark stains which have built up on the tooth surface.
