Dental hygiene

Dental hygiene

Our dental hygienists will examine your mouth for signs of oral diseases and carry out prophylactic treatments to help stop or prevent progression of gum diseases.

Why do I need to get my teeth cleaned by a hygienist?

There are hard-to-reach areas that we can’t clean thoroughly when we brush our teeth. Once plaque builds up and hardens into calculus (tartar), brushing alone can’t remove it. Our hygienists use special instruments to meticulously remove the buildup of hard deposits of calculus on your teeth. After your cleaning, they will show you how to remove soft plaque by yourself to help prevent the buildup of tartar.
