    Dental hygienists provide preventive oral health services that help individuals keep their teeth and gums free from diseases. Dental hygienists receive extensive training that prepares them for a variety of oral health services. Modern oral health care includes using X-rays to determine whether a cavity or any abnormalities will cause problems in the near future. Preventive dentistry experts, therefore, use x-ray machines to regularly check the mouths of their patients. The training teaches them how to use safety precautions, as well as how to position the camera and understand what the results mean. There are a variety of hard and soft instruments that dental health experts use to remove tartar and plaque. Scraping these deposits off of the teeth helps improve cosmetics by keeping the teeth white, but it also allows the teeth to remain healthy. In order to prevent these deposits, cavities, and periodontal diseases, the dental hygienists might also use fluoride rinses. This can lower the number of fillings that a patient needs in his or her lifetime by protecting the teeth, gums, and other parts of the mouth from decay. Polishing teeth also requires modern dental equipment. These polishing and cleaning instruments have indented surfaces on the end, where dentistry professionals can add polishing agents that are stronger than normal toothpaste. This allows the hygienist to give an intense cleaning that improves oral health. When choosing a dental hygienist, you might want to use the internet to help you find someone in your community who offers the specific types of health care that you need. Look for company web sites and forums where you can learn more about the options in your community.
