What can I expect from my visit with the Hygienist ?
During your visit Maria will review your oral hygiene and demonstrate how it can be improved. She will then clean around all your teeth and gums, particularly at the gum tooth interface. This is an important area if optimal gum health is to be achieved. Finally she will polish your teeth.
Teeth can be polished with either the conventional rubber cup and paste or with the more modern Prophy-Jet. Maria. offers both techniques, but most patients prefer the Prophy-Jet.
What are the newest innovations in dental hygiene technology?
The Prophy-Jet is a high-tech air polishing system that removes stains and debris from teeth. It is most effective at removing stains from areas that can not be reached by conventional polishing. Patients prefer this method because there is no unnerving sound or vibrations like conventional polishers.
