Dental hygienists are projected to be one of the 30 fastest growing occupations in the coming years. They remove soft and hard deposits from teeth, teach patients how to practice good oral hygiene, and provide other preventive dental care. Dental Hygienists examine patients’ teeth and gums looking for abnormalities. They remove stains and plaque from teeth; take and develop dental x rays; and apply cavity-preventive agents such as fluorides and pit and fissure sealants. In some States, hygienists administer anesthetics; place and carve filling materials, temporary fillings, and periodontal dressings; remove sutures; perform root-planning as a periodontal therapy; and smooth and polish metal restorations.
