No dental practice is complete without a caring and detailed hygienist. Dental hygiene refers to the practice of keeping the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy to prevent disease.
At Accu Dental, our dental hygienists work closely with our dentists to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. You will find our hygienists will review your health history and screen your oral health condition, especially as they relate to the health of your gums and overall oral hygiene of the mouth.
Because our hygienists care deeply about your oral health, they will educate you on proper brushing and flossing techniques, clean and floss your teeth, apply fluoride to keep teeth strong and fight bacteria to prevent cavities. A good hygienist will always educate you about the condition of your gums, the foundation for strong teeth and overall oral health. Our hygienists will always educate you about regular cleaning as opposed to Scaling & Root Planing a.k.a “deep cleaning”. When the plaque builds up around the gum line (Gingivitis) and/or the bacteria resides inside the gum line creating colonies and multiplying (Periodontitis), this process can cause the gum pocket depths to increase over time and in extreme cases you may end up loosening the teeth beyond repair resulting in single, multiple or fully mouth tooth extraction. Our experienced hygienists are experts in identifying these preventable conditions and more importantly offer to intervene and attempt to reverse Gingivitis and Periodontitis with combination of techniques such as deep cleaning, laser treatment and/or anti-bacterial medication for the gums.
Ask our hygienists if laser treatment is right for you.
Our hygienists are at the forefront of fighting the preventable oral health deceases by seeking your cooperation to see them at regular intervals.
