No matter how well we brush or floss, there will still be parts of the mouth that we won’t be able to clean by ourselves. Dental hygienists have years of training and all the instruments needed to thoroughly remove any plaque, calculus and surface staining on the teeth. Even our dentists see their hygienists to keep their teeth clean and prevent gum disease.
It is recommended that we see a hygienist every six months. However, people wearing braces or those with diabetes may be advised to have their hygiene appointments more frequently.
Guided Biofilm Therapy
At Dr. Michael's Dental Clinic, all our hygienists are highly trained in Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) using the EMS Airflow® Swiss technology. GBT is a revolutionary, minimally invasive form of dental maintenance and prophylaxis that offers a gentler, more effective clean for the teeth and gums.
