Why should I see a hygienist?

No matter how well people look after their teeth and gums, very few maintain perfect oral hygiene day by day.  Plaque is easily missed between the teeth and around the gumline. If plaque is missed regularly, it calcifies into tartar.  Even our “know-it-all” dentists visit the Hygienist twice yearly!

We strongly recommend regular visits to our Hygienist to assist in the prevention and treatment of periodontal (gum and jawbone) disease and maintain a healthy mouth.
