What does a hygienist do?

The role of the hygienist is to ensure that your gums are as healthy as possible through regular dental cleaning. They will also provide oral health advice and education on the best ways to keep your teeth clean. 

Gum disease (or gingivitis) is caused by the accumulation of plaque and calculus (tartar) around the teeth and gums. The first sign of gum disease is bleeding from the gums when you brush your teeth. When left untreated, this can progress to advanced gum disease (or periodontitis), which can result in loosening of the teeth. 

Our hygienists will help prevent the progress of gum disease by thorough dental cleaning.
