At Expressions Dental, our dental hygienists in Calgary are adept at performing teeth cleaning, which can help to reduce the chance of development of tooth decay, gingivitis, and gum disease. A dental hygienist offers thorough visual examinations and monitors gum and bone health helping to make it possible to diagnose patient concerns and monitor the health of the entire tooth and surrounding tissues.
Services offered by dental hygienists also include teeth scaling. Scaling helps clean all the plaque and tartar that has accumulated on the teeth and help maintain your oral health. Our dental hygienist in Calgary also does dental polishing which helps remove extrinsic stain and plaque. And with your dental visit, your dental hygienist may recommend a fluoride treatment. This dental fluoride for your teeth can help protect your teeth’s enamel and lower your risk for dental cavities.
When it comes to children and their dental care, it is recommended to visit a dental hygienist to help find answers to your questions and learn more about children’s dental health.
Oral hygiene in children is crucial due to the rapid changes that occur. Children must visit the dentist as soon as they get their very first primary(baby) tooth (age varies with every child). The enamel of primary teeth is thinner than that of an adult. Therefore, they can get decay faster. We also know that the pulp “nerve” in primary teeth is much bigger, and decay can reach it more quickly, which can lead to requiring a pulpotomy (partial root canal) or extraction. Therefore, children need to visit a dental hygienist and dentist as soon as their first teeth grow in. Your dental hygienist can guide you and your child with proper oral care.
