During a dental hygiene appointment, the hygienist or the dentist will do a professional cleaning and the dentist will get have a quick check up on the patient’s oral health and follow up for any existing dental issue.
IMPORTANCE OF ORAL HYGIENE
Although we do our best to brush and floss every day, certain areas in our mouth are difficult to reach and may not receive the appropriate oral care. Plaque and food debris accumulate in these areas making them prone to:
- Tooth decay
- Infection of the gum
Oral Hygiene has a very strong relation to our oral and overall health.
