At the Howell Hill Dental Practice we believe that dental hygiene and gum health is the foundation of having a healthy mouth.
The job of the dental hygienist is to clean all the areas that are difficult to reach, those areas which you cannot reach , show you the best way to clean your teeth and gums and show you areas you may be missing . They will also clean away hard deposits that have accumulated between your teeth that you or the toothbrush cannot do.
Why should you see a hygienist?
To prevent Gum Disease
Prevent bad breath.
Prevent bleeding gums
Prevent loss of teeth
Have a whiter smile
To keep your teeth
To prevent other health problems
With a consistent hygiene routine such problems can be stopped or even reversed in many cases.
