Dental Hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the patient’s teeth, also known as scaling and polishing. The most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep their teeth free of plaque, how to brush and floss and how to look after their gums.
Hygienists work to prevent the need for dental treatment, promoting and helping patients maintain good oral health. They also educate patients to develop behaviour that promotes better oral health and helps them to understand the importance of this.
Scaling and polishing is meant to help stop disease and maintain healthy tissues in the mouth.
