Dental hygiene is a very important part of keeping a healthy smile.
Hygienists are specifically trained in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities. They are keen to re- educate patients with regards to the use of toothbrushes, electronic aids, dental floss and inter-dental brushes.
At Dawley Family Dental, our hygienists will carefully examine and chart your teeth and gums noting in particular: inflammation, bleeding, swelling, and the presence of plaque and calculus. They will remove plaque and surface stains by gentle scraping, polishing and high-tech prophyflex power sprays.
Dental Hygiene is also known as Oral Hygiene and is the action of cleaning the teeth, gums, and tongue according to recommended dental practices for healthy oral wellbeing that prevents tooth decay and gum disease, and gives a fresh smelling breath.
