- Cleaning and Hygiene
Regular visits to our dental hygienist will ensure that hidden and difficult to reach plaque and tartar is removed from your teeth, killing mouth bacteria, and, in some cases, removing surface stains to leave you with a fresher, brighter and all-round healthier mouth.
Oral health treatments Regular hygienist scale and polish treatments will help to prevent gum (periodontal) disease, bleeding gums and tooth decay. Our hygienist will also provide advice on diet and how to prevent future tooth decay. If you are already suffering from gum (periodontal) disease, bleeding gums or bad breath (halitosis), you will need a course of treatments from our hygienists.
Lorraine and Paula are both very passionate about educating people on the best way to keep their gums and teeth healthy and free of disease. Their enthusiasm is infectious and they have honed their skills motivating our patients to achieve a happy, healthy smile. Our hygienists will provide patients with a more tailored approach to their oral health and comprehensive treatment for periodontal disease. They will help you achieve optimum oral health through education, cleaning and thorough detox of your mouth. Your dentist may also recommend that you see a dental hygienist for a thorough clean before beginning a complex dental treatment such as dental implants.
