Do You Know Why You Need a Dental Hygienist?

Benefits Of Visiting A Dental Hygienist

Going to the dentist involves more than just seeing the dentist. One of the most important parts of a regular dental care visit is a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. This cleaning is skillfully provided by a dental hygienist, but this is just one of the many benefits that these dental professionals provide.

Dental hygienists specialize in preventative oral health and hygiene. During your dental visit, dentist hygienists focus on prevention, treatment, and education to help you maintain your dental health.

In addition to cleaning your teeth and gums to remove all plaque and tartar, these dental care specialists examine you for potential problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and provide guidance on practicing good dental care.

Prevention is one of their priorities, so dental hygienists offer expert advice on protecting your dental care. They often recommend the right dental aids, demonstrate the best brushing techniques, alert you to factors that cause gum disease, and suggest replacements for foods and drinks that do damage to your dental health.

A dental hygienist works hand-in-hand with the dentist to provide a complete range of dental care. By getting regular cleanings from a dental hygienist in Reading and practicing what they preach, you can enjoy the many benefits of a healthy smile.

To get the cleaning and care you need from a dental hygienist and dentist near you, call Gentle Dental of Reading today at (484) 334-2592 or make an appointment.
