Oral Hygiene / Perio Overview
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping one’s mouth clean and free of disease and other problems (e.g. bad breath) by regular brushing and cleaning between the teeth. From a young age we are all encouraged to brush our teeth twice daily, but in reality – this often doesn’t happen.
At many practices your dentist will complete your regular scale and polish, but where you may have perio disease or infection you will often be referred to a Dental or Oral Hygienist. We have two Oral Hygienists here at Boyne Dental & Implant clinic. Our hygienists will work alongside your dentist to provide you with full oral health care. They will not only maintain your current smile to be as clean as bright as it can be, they specialise, where needed, in the prevention and treatment of oral diseases. They will also advise you on how to turn around your own care of your mouth and teeth in a few simple steps.
Your dental hygienist can remove most tobacco, coffee and tea stains. During your cleaning, your hygienist will also polish your teeth to a beautiful shine. The result? A whiter and brighter smile! Every visit to our hygienists will have you running your tongue along your teeth with satisfaction.
Hygienists help the dentist assess the best treatment plan which could reduce or even eliminate your recurring dental problems.
Having a great smile may open more doors for you, but it also helps keep you healthy once you get inside. Preventive dental work is essential for your health, and your teeth and gums will thank you for it over and over. Make the most of your smile. It’s the only one you have!
