Dental hygiene plays a pivotal role in our practice, advising patients on oral hygiene and the prevention of dental problems. Prevention is better than cure! We recommend patients visit the dental hygienist every six months for oral care. A dental hygienist specialises in prevention, as opposed to treatment of dental disease. This is important not just for your dental health, but for your general health as well.
Dentists will treat dental disease like decay and employ techniques to restore a damaged tooth. Whereas a hygienist’s role is to try to prevent the progress of all types of dental disease.
But what is best for the patient is to avoid all forms of treatments by adhering to good oral hygiene and regular visits to our clinics dental hygienists.
