Your hygiene appointments at StarBrite Dental usually take about an hour, which is a little bit more than the average hygiene appointment lasting 30-45 minutes. In this time your hygienist works quite efficiently to not only deliver a comprehensive and thorough dental cleaning, they also take care to cover the following procedures as well:
One of the main benefits from this appointment is you learn how to maintain proper at-home oral care in between hygiene visits which helps prevent most major dental issues. As a step further on repeat hygiene appointments persistent home care areas that are causing trouble are isolated and improved through further patient education on a case by case basis. Additionally, you are offered any needed dental products that would help assist you to maintain your oral health fully from over the counter items, like electric toothbrushes to prescription mouth rinses and fluoride toothpastes.
There are other key benefits:
Detection of early signs of oral cancer, bone loss and periodontal disease.
Patient education on nutrition and habits that may be effecting your oral health.
