OVERVIEW V4797 CLINICAL TIPS FOR HYGIENISTS – FROM DENTISTS
Dental hygienists serve a very valuable role in dentistry, as they are in charge the various preventive aspects
of dental practice. However, their influence is limited because of the inadvertent lack of routine contact with
other areas of dentistry. Dental hygienists spend more time with patients than dentists on a routine basis. If
dental hygienists broaden their knowledge, they may perform additional valuable services to the public. This
presentation is provided to dental hygienists with the purpose of informing them about many clinical concepts
they may not be aware of from their hygiene experiences. The following areas of dentistry are discussed with
clinical concepts specifically indicated from each area:
1. Diagnosis And Treatment Planning 2. Endodontics 3. Esthetic Dentistry 4. Implant Dentistry 5. Occlusion 6. Operative Dentistry 7. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 8. Orthodontics 9. Pediatric Dentistry 10. Periodontics 11. Preventive Dentistry 12. Fixed Prosthodontics 13. Removable Prosthodontics
There are many concepts in clinical dentistry that indicate need for therapy or developing challenges that
are potentially observed more frequently by dental hygienists than by dentists. It is apparent that if hygienists
have a broader clinical knowledge, they are able to provide much more service to a typical practice and to its
patients. Hygienists spend significant time with patients and meticulously treat each tooth, looking
subgingivally as well as supergingivally. During these in-depth examinations, hygienists have the opportunity
to detect pathosis and developing problems better than dentists. This tape is intended to alert hygienists to
many clinical concepts they may not otherwise have the opportunity to know.
