What do dental hygienists do?

Posted on 1/10/2022 by Evan
What do dental hygienists do?Going for dental checkups is essential in ensuring that you maintain good oral hygiene. When you go for a dental checkup the dental hygienist will do cleanings of the gums and teeth to ensure that you have a healthy mouth. Our dental team is ready to do checkups and you, the dental hygienist, will clean the teeth and remove plaque and tartar.

Dental X-rays

To determine if you have any oral health issues the dental hygienist will conduct dental X Rays and detect any oral issues. The hygienist will use the safe X-ray method and then refer you to the dentist with an x-ray report. The dental X-rays help determine if there is any problem with the teeth, jaws, gums, and even the maxillofacial area. If the dental hygienist notices that you have any oral health issue coming up they will refer you to the dentist for more examination. The dentist will come up with a treatment plant that will suit you. If the issue is beyond the dentist, they will refer you to a specialist.

Examine medical history

You need to visit the dental hygienist who will know what you need by checking on your medical history. Ensure that you discuss with the dental team the medication so that they will know what to prescribe to you after any dental treatment. The hygienist keeps all the medical history data in the record and when you see the dentist the dentist will be aware of it. Our dental team is composed of a skilled professional who will clean the teeth, and gums and also guide you on how to observe proper dental care.
