Oral hygienist In Johannesburg

Good oral hygiene is crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing regularly is essential, but it’s also important to see an oral hygienist regularly for professional cleanings and to prevent dental problems. 

At Hills Dental Studio in Johannesburg, we offer a range of oral hygiene services to help you maintain good oral health.

What is an Oral Hygienist?

An oral hygienist is a dental professional who specializes in preventing and treating gum disease and promoting good oral health. They work alongside dentists to provide preventative care and cleanings. 

Oral hygienists undergo extensive training and are qualified to provide a range of oral hygiene services, including scaling and polishing, fluoride treatments, and oral health education.

At Hills Dental Studio, our oral hygienists are experienced and highly trained, and they use the latest techniques and technologies to help you maintain good oral health.

Oral Hygiene Services at Hills Dental Studio

At Hills Dental Studio, we offer a range of oral hygiene services to meet your needs, including:

  • Professional cleanings: Our oral hygienists use advanced techniques and technologies to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly, removing plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Fluoride treatments: Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps to strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities. Our fluoride treatments can help to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
  • Oral health education: Our oral hygienists provide advice and education to help you maintain good oral health between appointments. We can provide personalized recommendations to meet your unique needs.
  • Periodontal treatment: If you have gum disease, our oral hygienists can provide treatment to help manage and prevent further damage to your gums and teeth.

Teeth cleaning

Teeth cleaning is one of the core services provided by oral hygienists as part of their oral hygiene services. This service involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems.

During a teeth cleaning appointment with an oral hygienist, the patient’s teeth and gums will be thoroughly examined to identify any signs of dental problems. The oral hygienist will then use special tools to remove the plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth, focusing on hard-to-reach areas that are difficult to clean with regular brushing and flossing.

Once the teeth have been cleaned, the oral hygienist may also apply a fluoride treatment to the teeth to strengthen the tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay. They may also provide advice on proper brushing and flossing techniques and recommend oral hygiene products to use at home.

Teeth cleaning is recommended every six months for most patients, although those with a history of gum disease or other dental problems may need to visit an oral hygienist more frequently. Regular teeth cleaning appointments with an oral hygienist can help prevent dental problems and maintain good oral health for life.

Benefits of maintaining good oral hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and preventing dental problems. Here are some of the benefits of maintaining good oral hygiene:

  1. Prevents tooth decay: Good oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing regularly can help remove plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth and can lead to tooth decay.

  2. Prevents gum disease: Gum disease is a common dental problem that can cause gum inflammation, bleeding, and even tooth loss. Maintaining good oral hygiene can prevent gum disease by removing plaque and tartar buildup on teeth.

  3. Reduces bad breath: Bad breath can be caused by the buildup of bacteria in the mouth. Regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist can help keep your mouth clean and fresh-smelling.

  4. Improves overall health: There is a link between oral health and overall health, with poor oral health linked to a range of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Maintaining good oral hygiene can help reduce the risk of these health problems.

  5. Saves money: Regular visits to the dentist and maintaining good oral hygiene can help prevent dental problems, which can be expensive to treat. By taking care of your teeth and gums, you can save money on dental treatments in the long run.

  6. Boosts confidence: A healthy and attractive smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem, improving your overall quality of life.

Overall, maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for preventing dental problems, improving overall health, and boosting confidence. By brushing and flossing regularly, visiting the dentist for regular check-ups, and adopting a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain good oral hygiene and enjoy the benefits of a healthy mouth for life.

  • Airflow polishing: This technique uses a high-pressure stream of water, air, and fine powder to remove surface stains and bacteria from teeth.
  • Laser therapy: This technique uses a dental laser to remove bacteria and tartar from below the gum line and promote the healing of the gums.
  • Oral cancer screening: Our oral hygienists are trained to identify the early signs of oral cancer during your appointment and can provide advice on the next steps if necessary.

My daughter and I have had such a pleasant experience with The Hills Dental Studio family so far, we first consulted with Dr Surprise who was very professional, patient and thorough in explaining the whole braces procedure and soon thereafter the journey began, oh wait, I have to send a shout out to Fatu, the most amazing Receptionist, forever smiling and warm , as well as Mokgadi the Dr's assistant, you guys are awesome!). FFW.. when it was time for her to have some teeth extracted Dr Craig took over, OMG I was so nervous about this surgery because it was a little complicated, but Dr Craig was so gentle, and the recovery was phenomenal. He is such a great Dr and it is evident that he and Dr Surprise truly love what they do.

I went to Hills Dental Studio earlier today to remove my wisdom tooth. Dr Craig assisted me. I was very nervous but Dr Craig communicated with me throughout the procedure to ensure I was still comfortable and not in pain. This helped me relax. Thank you Dr Craig for your kind and professional service. I will definitely be recommending Hills Dental Studio to everyone I know.
