Attending Regular Hygienist Visits At Apex Dental
When you visit Apex Dental your dentist will provide a deep and thorough examination of the teeth, gums and soft tissues in and around the mouth. They will also look to find, diagnose and treat dental issues and problems.
Apex Dental hygienists are there to ensure your oral health is maintained well between every check up with the dentist. They can help to clean away tartar that has built up, and provide information to help keep your mouth healthy. How many hygienist visits you require is completely unique to your oral hygiene needs. Some patients visit once between dental check-ups, others come more regularly, including shortly before special events where a deep clean and polish provides a quick and valuable smile confidence boost where it is needed the most.
