Dental Hygiene Appointments in Richmond

Following regular dental hygiene procedures is the foundation of good oral care. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your teeth daily. While these practices help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is also vital to visit your dental hygienist for more comprehensive teeth cleaning.

Why Do I Need a Dental Hygiene Appointment?

While brushing and flossing can help to remove food particles from the teeth, these techniques don’t get rid of everything. Food that is caught between the teeth and gums hardens over time, affecting the integrity of the gums and potentially leading to disease.

What to Expect At Your Appointment

Your dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove these hardened food particles, known as plaque, from the teeth. They will also offer tips on brushing techniques and highlight areas of your mouth that are more susceptible to build-up so you can focus on cleaning them more thoroughly.
