Dental hygienists are specially trained to work with the dentist in giving care to patients. They play an important role in dental health care and are mainly concerned with gum health, showing people correct home care and applying preventive materials to the teeth and gums.

The hygienist's main role is to professionally clean the teeth for the patient. This is usually called 'scaling and polishing'. However, perhaps their most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep the teeth free of plaque. the hygienist will work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs.

 

Regular professional cleaning combined with your home care will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.

Children can benefit from having their teeth polished. The hygienist can also apply fluoride gels and solutions to help prevent tooth decay.
