Early Detection of Gum Disease

Dental Hygienists focus on the detection and treatment of gum disease. Plus they play an Important and Vital role in instructing you on how to best care for your teeth. At the appointment, the hygienist will perform a thorough assessment of soft tissues within the mouth, cancer screening, tooth and gum health analysis and diagnosis.

Your appointment time usually lasts around 45-60 mins depending on your specific needs. After this initial discussion, the Hygienist will assess the health of your teeth and take careful notes regarding your oral health, and this will be discussed with other team members should the need arise. Treatment will commence, cleaning around each of your teeth and under your gums. The hygienist will then finish by polishing your teeth. This part is commonly called a ‘scale and clean’.
