At your oral hygiene appointments, our dental hygienists will provide a number of
services including:

  • Completing a full dental assessment, to note your current dental condition and detect any potential problems.
  • Completing periodontal charting, to measure the health of the gum and bone levels surrounding each tooth.
  • Performing professional teeth cleans. This involves scaling and polishing to remove plaque and calculus from the tooth surfaces, including between the teeth and below the gumline.
  • Fluoride application
  • Preventing and treating gum inflammation (gingivitis).
  • Assessing, and if necessary managing, gum disease (periodontitis)
  • Oral cancer screening (in conjunction with your dentist)
  • Saliva testing
  • Preventative treatments such as fissure sealants
  • Oral health education and dental product education (including how to brush and floss your teeth properly at home).
  • Advising if you should be using any specialty dental products (such as high-fluoride toothpaste, or antiseptic mouthwash) depending on your personal medical and oral condition(s).
  • Advising on lifestyle and medical factors that may negatively affect the health of your mouth.
  • Diagnosing any problems, or potential problems, in their early stages.
  • Creating a personalised oral hygiene plan for you, which will include routine dental check-ups and a custom home-care procedure.
