Even with really good home maintenance of our teeth, it is not possible to reach under the gums where food can get trapped. Overtime, bacteria builds up and causes plaque which can lead to gum disease.
Hygiene therapy is performed by a Hygienist. They clean below the gumline, removing trapped food, plaque and tartar so our mouth feels fresh, deep cleaned and helps to maintain healthy gums.
Our hygienist can also advise the best way to look after your teeth and gums at home, with the use of floss, interdental brushes and mouthwash.
We like to think of Hygiene therapy like you would service your car, a deep clean to help prevent decay and disease.
Hygiene therapy is usually prescribed by a dentist, ask about it at your next dental health check-up. Hygiene treatment is available on a private treatment basis.
