Dental hygiene services are best used when they are applied to prevention and control of hidden and incipient caries. Dental hygiene is the perfect preventive complement to dentistry and for patients can make all the difference in disease outcomes. With the advent of new alternative caries detection methods and myriad choices of fluoride products and sealants, patients can see first-hand the successes that dental hygienists have in reversing hidden and incipient caries and thus can appreciate the essence of preventive and therapeutic services dental hygienists are equipped to deliver.
