Dental Hygiene and Prevention

What is Dental Hygiene and Prevention?

We believe in the importance of Optimal Oral Health. This means actively preventing problems rather than waiting for them to arise. Attending a great hygienist, at the incorrect interval for your unique risk profile, and following their tailored advice will give you excellent oral health and minimise your risks of dental diseases.

Is Dental Hygiene and Preventative Care right for me?

Remember that each of us is a unique individual, and so your family history, dental history, oral hygiene habits and other habits all combine to give you a unique ‘risk profile’. This means that one individual may need to attend the hygienist only yearly for minimal polishing, while another person may require more specialised support and care every three months to minimise their risk. Gum disease does not hurt, so you will usually not know how healthy, or otherwise, your gums are.

Our hygienists work with our patients to design an individual care plan. They will carefully assess your mouth and your unique make-up, to ascertain the ideal regime to prevent problems. This may include cleaning and polishing treatments, home care advice, application of helpful medications to reduce inflammation and dietary tips along with their advice and expertise.
