Frequently asked questions - dental hygiene

Do dental hygienists take X-rays, and why are they necessary?

Yes, dental hygienists may take X-rays as part of their duties. X-rays help dentists and hygienists identify issues not visible during a regular examination, such as cavities between teeth, bone loss, and abnormalities. They play a crucial role in comprehensive dental care.

How can a dental hygienist help with gum disease prevention?

Dental hygienists play a key role in preventing and managing gum disease. They perform professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, offer guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, and educate patients on the importance of maintaining healthy gums to prevent gingivitis and periodontitis.

Is teeth cleaning painful during a dental hygienist appointment?

Teeth cleaning performed by a dental hygienist is generally not painful. However, some people may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity. If you have concerns about discomfort, it's important to tell your hygienist, who can make adjustments to ensure a more comfortable experience overall.

Do I need to do anything special before a dental hygienist appointment?

It's recommended to brush and floss your teeth before the appointment for a more effective cleaning. If you have specific concerns or medical conditions, inform the dental hygienist, and bring a list of any medications you are taking.

What to do if I have dental anxiety?

Dental hygienists are trained to work with patients who experience dental anxiety. Communicate your concerns with the hygienist beforehand, and they can take steps to make you feel more comfortable, such as explaining procedures, using relaxation techniques, or incorporating breaks during the appointment.
