Good oral hygiene is fundamental to having healthy teeth and gums. Routine visits to the dental hygienist are just as important as regular check-ups with your dentist.
Hygiene therapy starts with a thorough assessment of the health of your teeth and gums and then involves the gentle removal of any stubborn plaque and tartar build-up around the teeth and below the gum line that are missed by simple brushing alone. Plaque and tartar are the enemy of teeth and can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
