Dental Hygiene




The health of your mouth can influence your general health, and often when your smile is healthy, so are you. Periodontal diseases are chronic bacterial infections affecting your gums and bone supporting the teeth. They can cause bad breath, loose teeth, and puffy, bleeding gums. Research has also shown a potential link between periodontal diseases and other inflammatory conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Our hygienists will clean your teeth and check for signs of serious oral health problems, including cancer. During an oral visual exam, the hygienist will thoroughly check your teeth and gums, including under the gum line and the most common cancer zones – the floor of your mouth, under the tongue and the soft palette.

Regular visits with one of our hygienists are your best line of defence against serious oral health problems, because early detection means we can start treatment as soon as possible.



To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white.

Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.

If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan plase ask us.
