Dental Hygienists are specially trained members of the dental team who work together with your dentist to provide fully integrated dental care.
Hygienists specialise in the prevention and treatment of gum disease. Visits to our hygienists minimise the need for expensive dental treatment.
When you schedule an appointment with a Melbourne Dentist Clinic hygienist your teeth will be professionally cleaned, removing plaque, calculus (tartar) and staining – leaving your mouth feeling healthy and fresh.
Both adults and children can benefit from a visit to our dental hygienist – teaching patients about dental disease, how it occurs and how it can be prevented.
As professionals in oral health we can help you with:
- Regular check-ups and professional cleanings
- Periodontal assessments for gum disease
- Snore guards for peaceful, rewarding sleep
- Restorative dentistry to eliminate bacteria and maintain tooth structure
- Sealants to deter tooth decay
- Fluoride supplements for healthier teeth
- Oral cancer screenings
There are overall health benefits to your general health too. Research shows that untreated, or undiagnosed, gum disease leads to an increased risk of heart disease, strokes and can increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Our focus is on our patients’ oral health and wellness. Questions about your oral health and its effects on your general health are most welcome. So don’t delay, please contact our office by phone or book an appointment online with us today.
