Good oral hygiene is the key to good dental health and vital in eliminating gum disease and decay which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Our highly trained hygienists work with you and your dentist to ensure healthy gums, fresh breath and outstanding oral health.
Maintaining a good dental hygiene regime at home is essential to helping prevent the build up of plaque and tartar. However, some parts of the mouth are difficult if not impossible to reach and regular dental hygiene treatment is vital to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
The hygienist’s main role is to prevent gum disease by professionally cleaning your teeth, a process called scaling and polishing. They carefully remove any build up of plaque or hard deposits of calculus (tartar) above and below the gum using manual or ultrasonic instruments.
Your Metrodental hygienist will also give you advice about your daily maintenance routine so that you can keep your mouth in tip-top condition.
