Our hygiene team is passionate about what they do and are happy to help you keep your smile healthy.
The health of your mouth can influence your general health, and often when your smile is healthy, so are you. Periodontal diseases are chronic bacterial infections affecting your gums and bone supporting the teeth. They can cause bad breath, loose teeth, and puffy, bleeding gums. Research has also shown a potential link between periodontal diseases and other inflammatory conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
But our hygienists will clean your teeth and check for signs of serious oral health problems, including cancer. During an oral visual exam, the hygienist will thoroughly check your teeth and gums, including under the gum line, the floor of your mouth, under the tongue and the soft palette.
Ensuring that you maintain regular visits with one of our hygienists is your best line of defence against serious oral health problems, because early detection means we can start treatment as soon as possible.
