About our Anaheim dental Hygienist professionals
We employ only registered dental hygienists who graduated from accredited dental hygiene schools. They have met the California state license requirements by passing a national written dental hygiene exam and a clinical state board exam. Because your oral health is our top priority, 7 Day Dental employs the most skilled hygienists in Orange County. Many of our hygienists speak two or more languages.
In addition to regular periodic cleanings, our dental hygienists perform special deep cleanings when needed for the patient’s health. Patients who have deep pockets between their teeth and gums need deep cleaning to arrest the spread of gum disease. Our hygienists will be happy to explain the special tools, techniques and medications used in the procedure and answer all of your questions. In addition, they can answer questions about other procedures such as fluoride varnishing, teeth whitening, and other cosmetic procedures.
Deep teeth cleaning is needed when patients have gum pockets of 4mm and larger. The procedure is usually done in 2 visits, each cleaning one side of the mouth. First, the hygienist uses a special scaling tool to remove plaque and calculus below the gumline. 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, usually, applying a topical antibiotic. Your hygienist will provide detailed instructions for home care during the healing period.
We cannot stress enough that our 7 Day Dental hygienists are your first line of defense against gum disease. One out of every two American adults aged 30 and above has some form of periodontal disease. Too many of these people do not know that they have gum disease, and they do not know that periodontal diseases account for 75% of tooth loss in adults. Furthermore, researchers have found associations between periodontal infection and serious medical conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
Why Teeth Cleaning is so Important
Hygienists play a critical role in preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Their dental cleaning procedures remove the plaque and tartar that causes disease. Furthermore, the hygienist will always check your oral structures carefully and ask you for feedback to know when a possible irregularity calls for further examination by a dentist. Thus, it is essential to have your teeth professionally cleaned at least every 6 months, or more often if advised by your dentist.
