HYGIENIST

 

Dental Hygienists are specially trained in preventive oral health, and assess, treat and monitor your dental hygiene.

 

In the past dentists would do a clean and polish as part of a routine check-up, however our hygienists can offer a thorough and comprehensive oral health treatment. Most of our patients see Nova or Angela, our hygienists, every 6 to 12 months.

 

Studies have shown that good oral hygiene plays a role in overall health. Researchers have found that people who have periodontal (gum) disease have in increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and diabetes. The same harmful bacteria found in the mouth have been found in arterial plaques that cause heart disease.

 

So saving your teeth can also save your life!

 

The treatment involved is the careful removal of deposits that build up on the teeth (plaque and calculus or tartar) and education in how to prevent it re-forming again. This will slow the progress of gum disease and can even prevent it.

 

And if you thought this all sounds painful, think again....

 

Our hygienists have the latest equipment and an extremely caring and gentle manner.
