What Difference Can a Dental Hygienist Make?
Fights off tartar build-up
It would help if you tried to stay on top of your dental hygiene, even though you can only delay the build-up of tartar when the plaque hardens. Professional help is necessary to remove the build-ups and prevent the tartar from weakening and inevitably decaying your teeth.
We reach spaces that you won't
It is hard to check your molar's hygiene when you brush your teeth at home. Our dentists at Westwood Dental Group are trained to watch all the mouth corners. It's also instrumental in getting a professional clean-up if you have braces, as it's tougher to reach the back of teeth even when you have invisible braces offered by us.
We can spot any prospective issues
Having your teeth cleaned up by professionals also opens up the dentist's chance to identify any prospective issues building up. We at Westwood Dental Group provide a plaque score and monitor your gums to identify gum diseases. Periodontitis or gums disease is a common but preventable dental condition that begins with plaque build-up bacteria, which dental cleanings can help avoid. If not taken seriously, it can lead to severe issues, even causing tooth loss. Gingivitis, a painful inflammation of the gums, generally precedes gums disease.
