Preventative and Hygiene

Prevention and hygiene form the core to good oral health.

Prevention begins with regular oral health assessments (check-ups) so that any tooth and/or gum related problems can be identified and treated early. Regular check-ups include oral cancer screening, as early detection of oral cancer is of paramount importance in relation to improving survival rates.

High standards of oral hygiene is fundamental to having healthy teeth and gums, and routine visits to the dental hygienist are equally as important as having regular check-ups with your dentist.

What is Hygiene therapy?

Hygiene therapy involves a thorough examination of the teeth and gums followed by the removal of any stubborn plaque and tartar build-up from around the teeth and below the gum line that simple tooth brushing alone cannot always remove. If plaque and tartar are not removed they can lead to significant problems associated with tooth decay and gum disease. Ultimately, healthy teeth can be lost or may need to be removed if the gums and bone that support the teeth are destroyed by gum disease
