Why You Should See A Dental Hygienist Regularly


  1. Keep Gum Disease Away

Gum disease is so common that almost 90% of people have experienced it during their lifetime in some form.

Infection of the gum bone and tissues is labeled as gum disease. The gum bone and tissues are responsible for keeping your teeth in place. What makes it dangerous is that it doesn’t always cause pain which means people don’t always become aware of having gum disease. This disease is one of the major reasons for tooth loss in adults. The good news is that it can be reversed with proper treatment when diagnosed early.

If it isn’t treated properly, it could become more serious.

You need to maintain proper dental hygiene to avoid being afflicted with gum disease. You can’t just ignore it. After all, it is you who is going to pay the price of losing teeth or developing other health issues if you do not maintain proper dental hygiene.

Preventing gum disease isn’t that difficult. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day, floss on a regular basis and regularly visit our hygienist and keep your appointments with your dentist.

  1. Be Healthy

Some recent studies have also found an association between gum disease and strokes and heart attacks caused by poor oral hygiene. Regular dental cleaning helps in keeping your gums and teeth healthy and may reduce the risk of strokes and heart disease caused by poor oral hygiene.

  1. Avoid Tooth Loss

One of the main reasons for adults losing teeth is gum disease. This is why we recommend regular dental check-ups and cleaning.

The key to avoiding tooth loss is regular brushing and flossing. To keep your tooth strong and shining, you can use a tepe interdental brush. Also, if you keep your teeth healthy, you will have a healthy chewing function which should keep you healthy.

  1. Early Detection of Dental Problems

If you go for regular dental hygiene and clean-up checks, the hygienist and dentist will make you aware of any problems with the gums or teeth. It is relatively easy to treat gum disease, broken fillings and cavities when they are detected early.

Without treatment on time, the only available options for these problems typically include teeth removal, gum surgery, and root canals.

  1. Good Oral Health Maintenance

Everyone understands how important it is to maintain dental hygiene but not many people take care of their teeth. Many people think of it as a nuisance that would create problems if missed once or multiple times. Most people these days live busy lives which means they are always in a rush to leave for work in the morning and they come back home all exhausted which means their mouthwash, floss, toothbrush, and toothpaste are never used. If you are living such a life, your oral health would be in a terrible state.

When you visit our hygienist, they will perform a visual examination to check the state of your oral health. They will compare the results with your previous visits and if they notice problems with the maintenance of oral hygiene, they will make you aware of the same and help you get back on track.

Regular visits to our hygienist will help you avoid such issues and you will also get the necessary motivation and advice for maintaining good oral hygiene.

  1. Maintain a Bright Smile

Regular visits to the dental hygienist will help you get rid of red wine, tea, coffee, and tobacco stains. Our hygienist will also make sure to polish the teeth to bring out that beautiful shine and you will step out with a brighter smile and more confidence.

  1. Maintain Good Breath

Bad breath or halitosis is embarrassing, to say the least. It is caused by a wide range of factors but some of the most common factors are easily treated and preventable though bad breath may also be caused by particular medical conditions.
