Prevention and treatment of gum disease are what our dental hygienists specialise in. Other duties include teeth cleaning, plaque and tartar removal, and anti-staining procedures – all of which result in your having a brighter, healthier smile.
Optimal Dental Health
Dental hygienists minimise your need for expensive dental treatment. By teaching people about oral health and ways to prevent dental disease, dental hygienists help adults and children keep their teeth healthy and strong.
At Geelong Dental Clinic, dental hygienists can assist you with:
- Eliminating bacteria and maintaining tooth structure
- Deterring tooth decay with sealants
- Providing fluoride supplements for healthier teeth
- Conducting routine oral cancer screenings
- Providing regular check-ups and professional cleanings
- Periodontal assessments
Left untreated, or undiagnosed, gum disease can lead to lots of other health issues, including increased risk of heart disease and stroke. So the services of dental hygienists actually play a big role in your overall health.
