other advantages of seeing hygienist

If you get the feeling that your teeth and gums aren’t as clean as they could be even though you’ve just brushed them, you’re probably right. Plaque is a nearly colourless film that constantly forms on your teeth. It lies hidden in hard to reach places between your teeth and gums and forms from salivary proteins, bacteria and partly digested food particles.

Plaque bacteria make your gums tender and swollen, which eventually leads to chronic gum disease. If left untreated, this can progress to the loss of the bone which holds the teeth firmly in the jaws. This can lead to loosening and loss of the affected teeth.

The bacteria showering into the bloodstream can weaken the immune system and are recognised as contributory factors in other health problems, especially cardiovascular disease.

People generally tend to see hygienist more frequently than their dentist to benefit from that refreshing revived sensation. As hygienist on every visit check the soft tissues of the mouth, they have a good chance of noticing any abnormalities in very early stages. This can play a very important role in early diagnosis of many oral health complications such as oral cancer where early diagnosis is vital.

That is why it is so critical to thoroughly remove dental plaque everyday by toothbrushing your teeth. This prevents the build up of calculus (tartar) and reverses gum inflammation and bleeding, leading to a healthy mouth and a healthier YOU.
