A dental hygienist is an oral health professional specialising in the prevention of oral disease. The health of your mouth mirrors your overall health, therefore a healthy smile equals a healthy you!
Medical research has demonstrated relationships between gum (periodontal) disease and many conditions including stroke, heart disease, diabetes, pre-term/low birth weight babies, leukaemia/cancer and kidney disease.
We know that prevention is better than cure. Regular check-ups have two functions. Firstly we can identify and treat early signs of tooth decay or other dental disease, before they escalate. Secondly your hygienist can remove tartar buildup and stains to keep your gums healthy and your smile fresh and bright.
Our goal is to help you develop an effective oral hygiene routine to protect your teeth for life. So, if it has been a while since you have had an “active maintenance” appointment, we invite you to book online now or contact our friendly team.
