A dental hygienist is a qualified and licensed oral health professional who assists the dentist in the treatment of their patients, and focuses on preventative care.
Our aim is to extend the longevity of any dental treatment you may have had, and to keep your teeth and gums in their healthy state for as long as possible. This will ultimately reduce the time and cost of any further dental work required.
Dental hygienists are trained to perform specific clinical procedures which aim to prevent dental disease of the teeth and gums, ultimately leading to improved general health and well-being.
Most patients do not realise that the most important phase of dental treatment is the maintenance phase. Once your dental treatment is completed, maintaining your oral health is essential to the longevity of the treatment.
Appropriate maintenance requires regular reviews and assessments, generally on a six monthly basis, as well as optimal oral hygiene. Oral hygiene consists of both professional care and home care. It is the best means of preventing dental decay and gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis, ensuring you maintain optimal oral health for life!
