Dentistry Fears: Why a Visit to a Dental Hygienist Is Better Than a Typical Dentist, Westminster, Colorado

Smile Rockers in Westminster, CO, is a practice made up of dental  professionals where the focus is on the prevention of common oral problems, such as cavities and gum disease, instead of treatment. Run by a registered dental hygienist, Smile Rockers specializes in oral care for patients who fear visits to a regular dentist. For those unclear on why a visit to a dental hygienist can be beneficial, take a look through this guide to understanding dental hygiene practices.

What Is An Oral Hygiene Practice?

dentistryAn oral hygiene practice is a good fit for patients who have had traumatic dentistry experiences in the past, are afraid of drills and other dental tools, or those who don’t like their current dental care provider. At Smile Rockers, there is no dentist on staff, and services are provided by registered dental hygienists and support staff. In other words, you don’t have to worry about having your teeth drilled during your appointment. 

How Will A Dental Hygienist Help?

A visit to a hygienist can prevent you from needing to see a dentist. The dental hygienists at a designated oral care practice provide education and advanced preventative care customized for each patient. Patients can expect to benefit from teeth cleanings, deep cleanings, fluoride treatments, oral cancer exams, periodontal exam, and teeth whitening services. Other dentistry services include digital x-rays, removal of soft and hard deposits on the teeth, and mouth guard fittings.

At Smile Rockers, patients that need a new oral hygienist will find a caring and knowledgeable staff that is eager to help them develop an effective oral care plan for long-term results. They accept new Medicaid patients and welcome people of all ages. Call (303) 952-9796 to schedule an appointment or learn more about their services.
