FAQs on Dental Hygienists
What does a dental hygienist do to your teeth?
An ideal dental hygienist always motivates its patients to improve their dental hygiene by demonstrating tooth brushing, flossing, and diet. He or she will also remove plaque, clean and polish teeth to prevent gum diseases, applying antibacterial treatments to reduce decay, giving local anaesthetic under the supervision of a dentist, etc. Sometimes, a dental hygienist also applies temporary coatings and sealants to protect teeth and take x-rays.
What is the difference between a dentist and a hygienist?
A dentist and a hygienist, both are responsible for your healthy tooth and gum. The main difference between a dentist and a dental hygienist is that dentist is more highly qualified than a hygienist. Also, they have different responsibilities in a dental practice.
A dentist’s main responsibility is to diagnose any issue related to teeth. A dentist examines the X-rays, repairs teeth, applies plastic sealants on children’s teeth, performs corrective surgery, gives injections, fillings, implants, root canals, crowns, bridges, dentures, veneers, takes measurements for dentures, and anything else that requires a higher degree of skill.
A hygienist handles the responsibility to make the patient ready before a dentist comes to examine him/her. A hygienist removes any kind of soft and hard deposits from the teeth. They also teach patients how to practice good oral hygiene and also provide other preventive dental care.
