Through regular oral hygiene cleans and assessments we can effectively treat, manage and maintain your oral health, which in turn supports your overall health. What does an oral hygienist do? A dental hygienist’s role involves treating, managing and maintaining your overall oral health. Their main focus is on preventative dentistry, which is the practice of caring for your teeth and gums to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid or lower your risk of future dental problems and other health complications.

At your oral hygiene appointments, our cosmetic dentistry dental hygienists will provide a number of services including:

  • Completing a full dental assessment, to note your current dental condition and detect any potential problems.
  • Completing periodontal charting, to measure the health of the gum and bone levels surrounding each tooth.
  • Performing professional teeth cleans. This involves scaling and polishing to remove plaque and calculus from the tooth surfaces, including between the teeth and below the gumline.
  • Fluoride application
  • Preventing and treating gum inflammation (gingivitis).
  • Assessing, and if necessary managing, gum disease (periodontitis)
  • Oral cancer screening (in conjunction with your dentist)
  • Saliva testing
  • Preventative treatments such as fissure sealants
  • Oral health education and dental product education 

Tooth decay and gum disease are the two most common causes of tooth loss in adults, and they are both preventable with routine dental care and a good at-home oral hygiene routine. Your oral health and overall health are connected. Poor oral hygiene can not only lead to dental decay and gum disease, but studies are showing that poor oral health is significantly associated with other chronic systemic diseases.

Your mouth contains a balance of both good and harmful bacteria. Regular brushing, flossing and professional cleans help to reduce and remove the harmful bacteria. On the contrary, poor oral hygiene can lead to an overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Poor oral hygiene also leads to inflamed and bleeding gums, which can allow the harmful bacteria to enter into your bloodstream and affect other parts of your body.

Clean teeth

During an oral hygiene appointment you will receive a professional teeth clean. Your dental hygienist will remove plaque (dental biofilm) and calculus (tartar) from the surface of your teeth and around the gum line. They will also polish your teeth to remove surface staining and produce a smooth and shiny finish. Ensuring that your mouth is free from dental plaque and calculus is the best way to prevent tooth decay and other dental problems.

Why are dental cleans so important?

More than 500 species of bacteria have been detected in the human mouth. Within these species there are a mix of good bacteria, neutral bacteria, and harmful bacteria. Harmful bacteria feed on sugars (complex carbohydrates) in the food you eat to product dental plaque. Dental plaque is a sticky, colourless film that forms on the surface of your teeth and can give you that “fuzzy/furry” feeling. If plaque is not thoroughly removed by brushing and flossing it will accumulate. When plaque accumulates, it mineralises (hardens) and turns into calculus (tartar). Calculus also traps stains on your teeth and is often a brown or yellow colour.
