What Does a Dental Hygienist Do?

Dental hygienists are the ones who prep their patient’s mouth for the dentist. They clean the teeth, examine the mouth for signs of any concerning oral conditions such as gum disease or oral cancers. They also document the visit and educate the patient on how to take better care of and explain preventative measures of their mouths, teeth, and gums. Dental hygienists may take mouth x-rays, and apply tooth sealants and protectants. Tools hygienists use to clean teeth and gums are usually manual, powered, or ultrasonic, and they may use lasers, as well.” – Dental Hygienist Job Description and Training
