Why is dental hygiene important?

Dental hygiene is crucial for maintaining good oral health. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can lead to cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Proper dental hygiene also promotes overall health, as poor oral health has been linked to various systemic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

How often should I visit the dentist for dental hygiene treatment?

It’s recommended to visit your dentist for dental hygiene treatment at least twice a year. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings help detect any oral health issues early on and allow the dental professional to remove plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be removed with regular brushing and flossing.

What can I expect during a dental hygiene appointment?

During a dental hygiene appointment, a dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar. They will also perform a dental examination, looking for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. The hygienist may offer personalised advice on brushing and flossing techniques and recommend any necessary treatments or follow-up appointments.

Are dental hygiene treatments painful?

Dental hygiene treatments, such as cleanings, are typically not painful. The dental hygienist will use specialised tools to gently remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. However, if you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may experience some mild discomfort during the process. Inform your dental hygienist about any sensitivity so they can adjust the treatment accordingly.

Can dental hygiene treatments whiten my teeth?

Dental hygiene treatments like regular cleanings can help remove surface stains and make your teeth appear brighter. However, if you are looking for significant teeth whitening, your dentist may recommend professional teeth whitening treatments that use bleaching agents to lighten the colour of your teeth beyond what regular cleanings can achieve.
