Is it time to see our hygienist?

Have you been noticing bad breath and teeth staining recently? It might be time to see our hygienist Richmond. The signs leading up to this step can sometimes go unnoticed, especially if you’re someone who smokes and enjoys food with strong smells. You might even brush your teeth at night and be so overwhelmed by the minty smell that the smell of your breath can go unnoticed for a few hours. It is important to pay extra attention to these signs, however, as they can slowly turn into something more serious. Here at Sheen Dental, we want you to be confident in your smile. Not being able to laugh as loud and smile as wide as you want can have devastating effects, so make sure to get in touch with us before your lifestyle starts to take a hit.

In this short article, our hygienist Richmond will talk about why it is so important to take care of your teeth, what we can do if you’re concerned and other things that we offer.

Why is a hygienist important?

Your teeth are extremely sensitive. When you’re experiencing toothache or discomfort in your mouth, your first step is to get an appointment with our dentist, but what about preventing getting to that stage? That’s where our hygienist Richmond comes in. Our main goal is to take care of your teeth by keeping them clean and in good shape while also giving you the tools to maintain them at home. We’re also specially trained to keep an eye on future problems where periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, could at some point arise. We’ll consistently measure the gaps between your teeth to check for changes as well as thoroughly examine the rest of the mouth and take a detailed dental history. We’ll offer any treatment that will prevent the disease or stop it from progressing.

What does the treatment include?

To begin, we want to make sure that your teeth are cleaned and well looked after. The best way for you to do this is to brush twice a day and be sure to use floss to make sure that the hard to reach areas are free of food or growing plaque. We’ll first examine your teeth and gums and see just how much plaque needs to be removed, highlighting any potential problem areas as we move along. Then, we will move on to cleaning your teeth using equipment and pastes that you will only find in a dental office. Once your teeth are shiny and bright once again, we will advise you on the best way to clean your teeth and answer any questions you might have, as well as offer tips and recommendations on what you can do at home to keep your visits to us at a minimum.

The benefits and more

As you can imagine, keeping up on your appointments with us will keep your teeth in their best possible shape. It will also act as a preventive method to avoid more serious problems such as gum disease and tooth loss. These benefits can last you a lifetime! You will always leave our clinic with a fresh, minty breath!
