What’s all the floss?
We all know how to brush our teeth twice a day (whether we do it or not) but did you know brushing alone misses 40% of the tooth surfaces and that gum disease increases your risk of tooth loss, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s?
Don’t worry if you weren’t aware, because your hygienist certainly is. Dental Hygienists are highly trained clinicians that are constantly updating their knowledge to ensure you are receiving the best care.
Enough of the boring stuff; what can they do to help you? Hygienists don’t just clean your teeth. Your mouth and body are closely linked! The bacteria that build up is called ‘biofilm’ and these bacteria release toxins, causing harm to your mouth and to the rest of your body. Our expert team of hygienists disrupts and removes these bacteria and teaches you how to maintain them with a tailored oral hygiene plan to reduce the risk of harm, alongside extensive screening and diagnostic tests like cancer screening and bleeding levels, which also ensure all aspects of your oral and systemic health are reviewed.
Hygienists want you to be the best versions of yourself – that includes your oral health. Some may call them tooth fairy godmothers and others won’t be so keen, but no matter what they are, they are there for you and your health!
See you on your next visit – and don’t forget to floss!
