Prevention is always better than a cure, so is the saying. Dental hygiene is the practice of keeping good oral health and is considered to be the best means of prevention of cavities and gum disease. It also helps to prevent bad breath (halitosis).
Excellent Dental hygiene is a combination of personal and professional care.
Regular tooth cleaning by a Dental Hygienist is vital to remove plaque and tartar (calculus) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach on his own at home.
Do you know that long term plaque build-up (and subsequent gum disease which happens when the bacteria in the plaque attacks our gums below the surface to make them red and inflamed) is one of the most common causes of tooth decay and eventual tooth loss in the UK.
Professional cleaning also includes tooth polishing to remove stains that build up gradually due to consumption of certain foods Even if you do a great job of cleaning your teeth yourself and are particular about using dental floss, you still need professional cleanings as dental hygienists use special techniques, instruments, and their professional training to complete oral hygiene that is impossible to do yourself.
