Do I need to see the hygienist if I don’t have many natural teeth?

The answer to this question is yes!

Even if you have only a few teeth, it is still important to see a dental hygienist for regular scale and polishes. The hygienist will be able to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly, removing any plaque or tartar build up that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Even if you have only a few remaining teeth, it's important to maintain good oral hygiene practices to keep your remaining teeth and gums healthy. The hygienist can also provide you with personalised recommendations for how to take care of your oral health at home, such as brushing and flossing techniques.

Additionally, regular dental check-ups are important for detecting any oral health problems early on, such as cavities or gum disease. Your dental hygienist and dentist work together to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and help you maintain good oral health for a lifetime.

Seeing the hygienist on a regular basis is more cost – effective than replacing missing teeth.
