Along with the dentist, our dental hygienists are healthcare professionals who offer more than just teeth cleaning services. Our dental hygienists work as part of the Paramount Dental team, performing certain tasks that involve direct patient care.
Our team of Registered Dental Hygienists have over 25 years of combined experience. They are a crucial part of our dental team as your preventative care providers. Our hygienists are licensed to administer topical and local anesthetic to make you as comfortable as possible during your hygiene appointment. Registered Hygienists are strictly governed and required to maintain continuing education and healthcare provider CPR training. Our hygienists concentrate on preventative dental care, which is key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Your oral health can also impact your overall general health. The hygienist will perform a comprehensive dental hygiene oral exam which will include radiographs and measuring your gum health. They remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from above and below your gums to prevent gum disease and bone loss. Polishing of the teeth also removes stain and biofilm which can cause gum disease. Fluoride may be administered to help keep your enamel strong. Your hygienist will provide you with personalized tools and instructions for at home oral hygiene so you can maintain the best oral health possible.
