Dental hygienist

The primary responsibilities of a dental hygienist include:

Oral prophylaxis: The hygienist performs a thorough cleaning of the patient’s teeth and gums, including removing plaque and calculus (tartar) buildup and polishing teeth.

Patient education: The hygienist advises patients about good oral hygiene practices, including proper brushing and flossing techniques, and provides guidance on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Air flow polish

Airflow polishing is a dental cleaning technique that is used to remove surface stains, plaque, and bacteria from your teeth. During the procedure, your dental hygienist will use a handheld device that delivers a stream of compressed air and water, along with a fine powder, onto the surface of your teeth.

The fine powder particles gently scrub away any surface stains or discolorations, and the compressed air and water work to remove any remaining debris or bacteria. The procedure is gentle, effective, and non-invasive, and it is often used as part of a comprehensive dental cleaning.

Airflow polishing is especially useful for removing tough stains caused by smoking, coffee, tea, or red wine, and it is also helpful for patients with sensitive teeth because it doesn’t require the use of dental instruments. The procedure is typically pain-free and can leave your teeth looking and feeling clean, smooth, and bright.
