Oral Hygenists


If your oral hygiene is of a high standard there will be a limited amount of gum infection. In these cases you will need to visit the hygienist twice a year. If however there is an advanced state of gum infection you may find that you will need 4-6 visits a year. In very serious cases one may need to be referred to a periodontist (gum specialist) for more advanced treatment of the gums before you can see the hygienist.

Not only does our hygienist remove all plaque and calculus but she will also design a cleaning protocol specific to your needs. This may include the use of an ultra sonic toothbrush, floss, interdental brushes, fluoride mouth rinses and prescription toothpastes. If you have sensitive teeth she will apply the indicated desensitizing agent to eradicate the problem. She may advise the placement of a special antibacterial chip into the space between the gum and the tooth in areas where the gum infection is more severe. Our goal is to give you firm, healthy gums and the knowledge to keep them that way.
