As dental disease can occur through out life regardless of age
Treatment and advice will benefit all. Preventing disease is always better than treating it, and less expensive also.
We have a Dental Hygienist (Nav) and an Oral Health Therapist (Nam), who are specially trained members of the dental team who have university qualifications in dental hygiene and oral health therapy, working to provide fully integrated dental care. They play an important role in over- all oral health care by providing personalised care and instruction to patients, demonstrating correct home care and offering appropriate product advice.
Dental hygienists play a role in oral health provision by providing clinical treatment of gum conditions and assisting patients to understand the systemic link between dental health and overall health.
Patient education that is specific to their needs. This one to one instruction includes gum and tooth care and information on dietary habits including smoking and systemic health. Hygienists provide information and advise on a wide range of topics where medicine and oral health overlap.
We also offer advise and treatment options such as bleaching for patients who wish to explore cosmetic whitening procedures.
Communicate with your dentist to plan an oral health maintenance program, including an assessment of your gum (periodontal) health, evaluation/recommendation and provision of radiographs at timely intervals and review and update medical records.
Removal of bacterial plaque, calculus (tartar) and stains from your teeth through teeth cleaning and apply agents such as fluoride to assist in the prevention of decay or to help desenitize the teeth by applying other medicaments.
Dental hygiene treatment or teeth cleaning is usually not uncomfortable, but if you are very sensitive, talk to your hygienist about possible treatment options available to make the treatment more comfortable for you.
