Dental Hygiene is more than just a beautiful smile; it is a preventive maintenance therapy to maintain overall oral health. When with one of our registered dental hygienists there is a variety of services provided that is tailored specifically to every patients needs. Please lay back and enjoy the massage chairs while you watch TV in the ceiling!
You treatment will start with an updated medical history with one of our Team Fresh hygienists, they will check up with you on your home care, ask you the tricky questions – like how often do you floss?
Be honest with them, we understand everyone gets busy or forgets but as long as you’re in our chairs we are happy to see that you are taking action and taking care of your oral health. The dental hygienist will help educate you on information related to brushing/flossing, risk of dental decay, smoking cessation, and nutrition information.
Your hygiene treatment then will include (debridement) to remove plaque and calculus from the tooth surfaces. This is done using an ultrasonic instrument (powered instrument) and/or hand instruments. After your teeth will be polished to remove any remaining stains and a fluoride rinse or fluoride varnish treatment to prevent decay, and/or decrease sensitivity and strengthen your teeth.
