The Important Role Our Hygienists Play In Dental Health For Patients Near Seapoint

Many of us are aware that brushing our teeth helps to keep cavities and gum disease at bay, but did you know that dental hygiene also has a major impact on your overall health?

Our experienced dental hygienists are a very important part of the Dublin18 Dental team and they offer an array of services to promote good oral health and reduce the risk of harmful oral health conditions.

What do dental hygienists do?

Dental hygienists are experts in oral hygiene and they provide a range of treatments and therapies, which are designed to strengthen and protect the teeth, keep the gums and teeth healthy and the mouth clean and fresh. Cleaning treatments are much more intensive than brushing at home and they leave the teeth shiny and bright and the breath lovely and fresh. Cleaning treatments can also lighten the teeth by removing surface stains, which gives you a gorgeous, glowing smile.

One of the most important services offered by our dental hygienists is gum disease treatment; our hygienists work closely with the dentists to treat and manage gum disease and ensure that patients are pain-free and as healthy as possible. Scale and polish treatments and advice about oral hygiene, smoking and nutrition can all help to ease symptoms of gum disease and reduce the risk of problems in the future.

Prevention is better than cure

At Dublin18 Dental Care near Seapoint we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and we offer sealant treatment and fluoride varnish for children to help strengthen the teeth and reduce the risk of dental decay. The treatments are quick and completely painless.

Our hygienists are also committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and they are always on hand to offer advice about choosing oral hygiene products, brushing technique, healthy eating and giving up smoking.

Dental hygiene is really important, especially as numerous studies have now indicated that poor oral health increases the risk of general health conditions, including heart disease and strokes.
