What do dental hygienists at Cambrian Dental do?


1. Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is one of the most concerning issues in today’s medical world and often occurs as a result of disregard for proper oral health. If not discovered and treated early enough, this cancer can result in serious health problems or even death.

Our hygienists know how to recognize the signs of oral cancer. If they find anything suspicious during their examination, they can prepare you for treatment. The hygienist will make note of any asymmetry or skin changes such as crusts or colour change. The next step involves feeling for precursor tissue differences like a lump in your neck or thick feeling in your cheek. If signs of pre-cancerous lesions are discovered, a biopsy may be scheduled to examine cells that are sent to a lab for tests. By carefully analyzing your face, neck and head, our dental hygienists are able to provide you with this important screening.

Everyone needs their teeth cleaned. This routine treatment should be performed at least twice a year to keep your mouth free from harmful bacteria. Who performs dental cleanings? Our hygienists at Cambrian Dental use intra-oral cameras and x-rays to take a detailed look at your teeth and gums. Hygienists use the pictures to identify areas of plaque and tartar buildup that cause cavities and need removing. Plaque and tartar are removed from your teeth, during your dental cleaning, before polishing them to a clean and hygienic state.

Cleanings help prevent tooth decay and gum disease by removing germs that build up over time. By visiting our dental hygienists you’ll walk out of our office with that squeaky clean feeling in your mouth.


3. Sealants

Why is it beneficial for me to get a sealant? Sealants help protect your teeth from decay. Your dental hygienists can apply sealants to your teeth in order to keep food particles from sticking in your molars. This thin coating is placed as a protective shield on your teeth to help prevent cavities.

Dental sealants are often recommended for your child’s primary teeth as well. Using our top of the line dental tools, your dental hygienist is able to seal your molars deep into the depressions and grooves, where a toothbrush is unable to reach. By sealing these hard to reach areas, your hygienist helps keep your teeth in top shape.

5. Record and Review Health History

Before treatment is started for any dental procedure, it is vital to know about your medical and dental history. This history helps us determine the right treatment for you and avoid any negative reactions due to allergies or medical conditions.
