The hygienist plays a key role in helping you to maintain a healthy mouth and avoiding problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Gum disease is the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults.
During your visit, the hygienist will remove plaque and calculus deposits, leaving your mouth feeling fresh and clean. They can also remove stains. Hygienists can also advise you on the best way to care for your gums and teeth, including an effective daily cleaning routine and following a healthy diet.
