Hygienist / Cleaning

At Brant Smiles, we understand the importance of maintaining excellent oral hygiene for the overall health and beauty of your smile. Our skilled dental hygienists provide comprehensive hygiene services and general cleaning to help you achieve optimal oral health and keep your smile looking its best. We are committed to delivering gentle, thorough, and personalized care to each of our patients.

Importance of Professional Hygiene Services:

Regular visits to our dental hygienists are essential for several reasons:

  1. Plaque and Tartar Removal: Despite regular brushing and flossing, plaque can still accumulate in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Over time, this plaque hardens into tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing alone. Our hygienists have the expertise and specialized tools to effectively remove plaque and tartar, preventing dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
  2. Gum Disease Prevention: Gum disease is a common oral health problem that can lead to tooth loss and other complications if left untreated. Professional cleanings help remove bacteria and plaque from the gum line, reducing the risk of gum disease and maintaining healthy gums.
  3. Fresher Breath: Persistent bad breath, or halitosis, is often caused by bacteria in the mouth. Regular cleanings remove the buildup of bacteria, plaque, and tartar, resulting in fresher breath and improved oral hygiene.
  4. Early Detection of Dental Issues: During your hygiene appointment, our hygienists will carefully examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissues. By identifying any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental problems at an early stage, we can provide prompt treatment and prevent further damage to your oral health.

Our Hygiene Services:

  1. Dental Cleanings: Our skilled hygienists perform thorough cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. This process involves using specialized tools to gently and effectively clean the surfaces of your teeth, leaving them smooth and polished.
  2. Gum Disease Treatment: If you show signs of gum disease, such as redness, swelling, or bleeding gums, our hygienists can provide treatments like scaling and root planing to remove bacteria and restore gum health.
  3. Oral Health Education: We believe that patient education is crucial for maintaining good oral hygiene habits. Our hygienists will provide personalized guidance on proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as recommendations for oral care products that suit your needs.
  4. Dental X-Rays: As part of our comprehensive approach to oral health, our hygienists may take dental X-rays to assess your teeth, gums, and jawbone. X-rays allow us to identify potential issues that may not be visible during a regular examination, helping us provide accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans.
