Why do I need to see a dental hygienist?
A healthy mouth leads to a healthier you. It not just benefits your own personal comfort but also the way you feel about yourself and are perceived by others. That is why we offer an extensive range of dentistry services to meet the needs of every family member.
Clinical studies prove that regular treatment by a hygienist will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, your smile whiter and your breath fresher. That’s why we adopt a preventive approach to dentistry, in which dentists and hygienists work together to ensure you and your family receive comprehensive preventive dental care.
Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults and tooth decay is a growing problem for children even as young as four. Bacteria thrive in the plaque and tartar on your teeth, causing gum irritation and bleeding. If left unresolved this eventually results in the gums becoming infected and causing teeth to become loose.
Regular professional removal of bacteria and plaque by the hygienist is essential in maintaining healthy gums. Our hygienists are very experienced and as well as cleaning and polishing your teeth they will also give you advice on your diet and how to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home.
