Why You Should Visit a Dental Hygienist Today

Nearly one in four adults have untreated tooth decay, and almost 50% have gum disease. These oral conditions can lead to tooth loss and affect your overall health but, many times, are entirely preventable. It’s easy to overlook the importance of regular dental visits, but they are crucial to your overall well-being.

Benefits of a Routine Hygiene Appointment

A dental hygienist does more than make your teeth sparkle and shine. They are a fountain of knowledge and can answer many of your questions concerning your oral health. There are many benefits to a routine hygiene appointment. 

Thorough Cleaning

Sometimes, daily brushing and flossing aren’t enough to remove some of the stains from our teeth. A hygienist has specialized tools to effectively clean your teeth and gums by removing accumulated plaque and residue. 

Early Detection 

Clean teeth are nice, but routinely visiting your hygienist allows them to identify potential dental issues early. Early detection may save you time and money on extensive treatment. 

Fresher Breath 

Chronic bad breath can lower your self-confidence, but poor oral hygiene habits often cause it. Regular dental appointments ensure you don’t have to worry about your breath when interacting with other people. 

Improves Your Oral Hygiene 

A little education goes a long way with oral hygiene. These dental professionals can fill you in on proper brushing and flossing techniques, foods to avoid or eat, and the best tools to use at home for your unique needs. 

Creates a Confident Smile 

Everyone wants a beautiful, white smile. But it’s only possible when you practice good oral hygiene. Routine visits with a hygienist can help you manage any unexpected complications affecting your teeth, creating a more confident smile.

I've been a patient of Dr. Piper's for the last 19 years so it's very obvious that I've been a very very satisfied patient. I had an excellent full check-up today with x-rays and everything was perfect. Perfect because I've been going consistently and following their experts on dental care, cleaning and good health! Bravo 👏 👏 👏
