What is a dental hygienist?
Dental hygienists are your partners in health. They are health care professionals who teach you how to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums healthy. They also can let you know if they see signs of other health problems. For example, did you know that a dental hygienist who looks inside your mouth can tell who's been smoking? You can ask your dental hygienist any questions you have about your teeth and gums.
Here are some tips to help you keep your teeth healthy & strong!
- Ask your dental hygienist to teach you how to brush & floss correctly.
- Don't eat sugary foods (like candy) or starchy foods (like pretzels) in between meals. Instead, try eating an apple, banana, or carrot. Drink milk instead of soda.
- If you do eat in between meals, be sure to brush your teeth when you are finished.
