What is the role of a dental hygienist?
While you might only reserve your dental visits for when something goes wrong, preventative dental cleanings and inspections are the cornerstones of healthy gums and teeth. Our dental hygienists perform a variety of functions that come under the umbrella of preventative dentistry.
One of the functions that a dental hygienist performs is cleaning your teeth. While regular flossing and brushing are essential, it’s impossible to reach many areas of your teeth. This is why regular oral cleanings by a hygienist are crucial. Our dental hygienists remove the built-up plaque and tartar in your teeth to ensure that your mouth stays healthy.
Dental hygienists can also conduct oral inspections to detect signs of oral diseases. The early detection of these diseases can enable us to create a customized treatment plan for you and nip the problem in the bud.
Another critical purpose of our dental hygienist is to educate you about the necessary steps you should take to maintain your teeth’ health and ensure their longevity. They give you advice regarding healthy oral habits and inform you about dental solutions like teeth whitening.

Preserve Your Smile with Preventive Resin Restorations
Imagine safeguarding vulnerable back teeth from decay. Our preventive resin restorations are designed to seal and protect those susceptible grooves. This proactive approach starts as soon as the tooth emerges, preventing bacteria from causing lasting harm. The grooves of the teeth are meticulously cleaned then a white flowable filling is skillfully bonded to seal these grooves. A white flowable filling is then skillfully bonded to seal these grooves. Occasionally, hidden decay is uncovered, which we promptly address with a conventional white composite resin filling. Embracing early, minimally invasive interventions such as preventive resin restorations can preserve tooth structure, staving off the agony of dental decay.
