Importance of Dental Hygiene

You take good care of your oral hygiene, right? But unfortunately, not many people do the same and don’t understand the significance of practicing an oral hygiene regime which is not only important for your mouth and teeth to stay fresh but is also necessary for your overall body to stay healthy.

However, visiting your dentist for regular dental checkups is important to be aware of any issue with your oral health. If you notice bad breath or feel like something’s wrong with your mouth, visit a dental hygienist for an examination. Dental hygienists are trained to help you prevent tooth decay, gum disease, or any other issue with your oral health. Aava Dental Group has three offices in Tarzana, Oxnard, and North Hollywood, CA. Schedule an appointment with the closest one to ensure your oral health is never compromised.

What is a Dental Hygienist?

Dental hygienists are dental professionals who have special knowledge and training in preventive dentistry and oral hygiene. They carefully examine the mouth of the patient and look for any signs and symptoms of lingering oral infection. Dental hygienists also perform teeth cleaning to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar, so your teeth and gums stay safe from bacteria. You will also encounter a hygienist during procedures such as deep cleaning, scaling and root planing, and teeth whitening.

Visiting your dental hygienist at Aava Dental Group at least twice a year is the key to improved oral and overall health.

Are In-Office Teeth Cleanings Necessary?

Over time the plaque left on the teeth due to improper brushing becomes calcified and turns into tartar. The hardened dental calculus causes bad breath, yellow teeth, discoloration, tooth decay, and gum disease. While you can remove regular plaque at home with proper brushing and flossing, once the tartar builds up, only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove the calcified deposits using special instruments. Getting rid of this dental calculus is an important step that reduces the chances of cavities, gum disease, and issues related to your gum. The dental team at Aava has all the experience and expertise to access all parts of your mouth properly. Regular teeth cleanings help monitor your oral health and ensure the areas with any oral issues are quickly treated when required. We’ll closely examine your mouth during the appointment to look for any disease.
