Our Anaheim Hygienists and your Dental Care
Our hygienists provide both regular periodic cleanings and deep cleanings. They are trained to know when deep cleanings are needed to arrest the spread of gum disease. They will be happy to explain how the existence of deep pockets calls for deep cleaning. Your hygienist will describe the procedure and answer all of your questions. They are also trained to answer questions about other procedures such as fluoride varnishing, teeth whitening, and other cosmetic procedures.
Patients with gum pockets of 4mm and larger need deep cleaning. The procedure is usually done in 2 visits, each cleaning one side of the mouth. The first step in deep cleaning is removal of plaque and calculus below the gumline using a special scaling tool. Next, a root planing tool is used to smooth the surface to eliminate areas where bacteria gather and to allow the gums to reattach to the tooth root. This is followed by rinsing the cleaned area with an antiseptic solution and applying a topical antibiotic. The hygienist will provide detailed instructions for home care during the healing period.
Why is the role of Hygienists so important for your oral care
We cannot stress enough the crucial role our 7 Day Dental hygienists play in preventing gum disease. Periodontal disease affects one out of every two American adults aged 30 and above. A large number of these people do not know that they have gum disease. And yet, periodontal diseases account for 75% of tooth loss in adults. Furthermore, research has also found associations between periodontal infection and serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
Hygienists are your first line of defense against tooth decay and gum disease. While their main task is to remove the plaque and tartar from teeth, they also must carefully examine the patient’s entire oral cavity in order to detect a possible irregularity that calls for further examination by a dentist. Our hygienists are an essential part of the oral health team whose goal is to prevent oral diseases and stop the disease process from becoming worse. Therefore, it is vitally important to have your teeth professionally cleaned at least every 6 months, or more often if advised by your dentist.
