Dental Hygiene

Healthy gums are an essential part of a healthy mouth and unhealthy gums can also affect your general health. Treatment needs vary according to individual susceptibility and range from a simple clean at exam time to more extensive cleaning with your dentist or hygienist. Our hygienists are trained to monitor the progression of gum disease, clean teeth thoroughly and assist with tips for homecare to keep gums healthy and supporting teeth. The frequency of visits every 3, 4 or 6 months depends on a number of factors including susceptibility, the extent of the problems and the effectiveness of homecare.
