Hygienist Services / Gum Disease
Good oral hygiene is fundamental to keeping healthy teeth, gums and dental implants. In addition, it is a highly recommended prior to embarking on smile makeover, teeth whitening and cosmetic veneers treatments.
At Smile our hygienist and cosmetic dentist are highly trained in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities. We regularly educate patients how to correctly use toothbrushes, electronic aids, dental floss and inter-dental brushes. Also, special attention is paid toward tongue health and clean too as it is one possible cause for bad breath.
During your hygiene appointment, we will carefully examine and chart your teeth and gums noting in particular: inflammation, bleeding, swelling, and the presence of plaque and calculus. Plaque and surface stains are removed by gentle scraping, the latest polishes and high-tech prophylaxis power sprays. This will maintain your teeth, dental implants and any fitted cosmetic veneers healthy and shiny.
