Dental Hygiene

The focus of our Dental Hygienist is to maintain the health of your gums and teeth over the long term.

As many as 20% of patients are susceptible to gum disease over the long term which causes teeth loosening and tooth loss.

Fortunately, most oral disease, such as gum disease and decay, are preventable with the correct home care.

Gum disease has also been linked to other diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. Maintaining good gum health can help to prevent or manage these conditions.

Regular dental hygiene appointments are an essential aspect of good dental care. Customised oral hygiene instructions and treatment can reduce the need for future dental treatments and increase the life of your dental restorations.
