Dental hygiene therapist in Calgary describes the importance of better oral health and wellness
Dr. Hanif Asaria and the friendly team at Calgary Dental Centers provide patients with many services under one roof. This practice is committed to ensuring patients practice good oral hygiene. A hygiene therapist, or dental hygienist, can help patients achieve oral health and wellness and maintain it for life with regular cleanings and examinations.
Why maintain good oral health?
Your oral health and wellness is important for many reasons.
- Good oral hygiene habits can keep the smile looking great for many years
- Patients who have good oral health have fewer risks of periodontal disease and the development of dental decay (cavities)
- Periodontal disease can carry through the bloodstream and affect other parts of the body, carrying infection to other organs and increasing the risk of strokes and heart disease
- Visiting the dentist regularly is a great way to build a positive relationship with the doctor who monitors your oral health and wellness.
At Calgary Dental Centers, hygiene therapists educate patients on how to maintain their smile now and in the coming years. Brushing and flossing should be done after every meal to keep the teeth clean and healthy. Patients are encouraged to visit at least twice a year for a cleaning and examination, during which the dental therapists can monitor oral health and look for signs of problems such as infection or disease. These are issues that, if caught early enough, have a high chance of being reversed with minimal time, effort, and money. Prevention avoids development of these issues in the first place.
